Nuget Search

Dec 9, 2011 at 7:28 PM

It may be me, but when I search through NuGet's packages, it's a bit cumbersome. 

For example, I'd like to search for all things Dynamic Data. The search results seem to pull a logical OR. That would be ok, if I could choose to set it as a logical AND.  (ex. Google, you can do +Dynamic +Data, or for that matter "Dynamic Data").

Would also be helpful to either have tags or categories to be able to filter further.

My 2 cents on a great tool!

We're working on switching over our search (for both the gallery and consequently VS) to use Lucene which should make searches more relevant and accurate. We plan on developing the gallery to support more advanced searches so that it would be our platform for package discovery.
