paket add [--help] [--version <version constraint>] [--project <path>] [--group <name>]
          [--create-new-binding-files] [--force] [--interactive] [--redirects] [--clean-redirects]
          [--no-install] [--no-resolve] [--keep-major] [--keep-minor] [--keep-patch]
          [--touch-affected-refs] <package ID>

NUGET:

    <package ID>          NuGet package ID

OPTIONS:

    --version, -V <version constraint>
                          dependency version constraint
    --project, -p <path>  add the dependency to a single project only
    --group, -g <name>    add the dependency to a group (default: Main group)
    --create-new-binding-files
                          create binding redirect files if needed
    --force, -f           force download and reinstallation of all dependencies
    --interactive, -i     ask for every project whether to add the dependency
    --redirects           create binding redirects
    --clean-redirects     remove binding redirects that were not created by Paket
    --no-install          do not modify projects
    --no-resolve          do not resolve
    --keep-major          only allow updates that preserve the major version
    --keep-minor          only allow updates that preserve the minor version
    --keep-patch          only allow updates that preserve the patch version
    --touch-affected-refs touch project files referencing affected dependencies to help incremental
                          build tools detecting the change
    --silent, -s          suppress console output
    --verbose, -v         print detailed information to the console
    --log-file <path>     print output to a file
    --from-bootstrapper   call coming from the '--run' feature of the bootstrapper
    --help                display this list of options.

If you add the --verbose flag Paket will run in verbose mode and show detailed information.

With --log-file [path] you can trace the logged information into a file.

Adding to a project

By default packages are only added to the solution directory, but not on any of its projects. It's possible to add the package to a specific project:

1: 
paket add <package ID> --project <project>

See also paket remove.

Example

Consider the following paket.dependencies file:

1: 
2: 
3: 
source https:/nuget.org/api/v2

nuget FAKE

Now we run paket add NUnit --version '~> 2.6' --interactive to install the package:

$ paket add NUnit --version '~> 2.6' --interactive
Paket version 5.0.0
Adding NUnit ~> 2.6 to ~/Example/paket.dependencies into group Main
Resolving packages for group Main:
 - NUnit 2.6.4
 - FAKE 4.61.3
Locked version resolution written to ~/Example/paket.lock
Dependencies files saved to ~/Example/paket.dependencies
  Install to ~/Example/src/Foo/Foo.fsproj into group Main?
    [Y]es/[N]o => y

Adding package NUnit to ~/Example/src/Foo/paket.references into group Main
References file saved to ~/Example/src/Foo/paket.references
  Install to ~/Example/src/Bar/Bar.fsproj into group Main?
    [Y]es/[N]o => n

Performance:
 - Resolver: 12 seconds (1 runs)
    - Runtime: 214 milliseconds
    - Blocked (retrieving package details): 86 milliseconds (4 times)
    - Blocked (retrieving package versions): 3 seconds (4 times)
    - Not Blocked (retrieving package versions): 6 times
    - Not Blocked (retrieving package details): 2 times
 - Disk IO: 786 milliseconds
 - Average Request Time: 1 second
 - Number of Requests: 12
 - Runtime: 14 seconds

This will add the package to the selected paket.references files and also to the paket.dependencies file. Note that the version constraint specified the in the above command was preserved.
