View and Track Dependent Packages

Dec 13, 2011 at 9:59 PM

Hi,

Is there a way to get a list of packages that are dependent on a package that I own?  Also, is there a way to track dependents so that I will be notified when the list changes?

I see that NuGet.org shows a list of Dependencies for a package, but I'd like to see the inverse (Dependent) relationships as well.

Thanks,
Dave

nuget.org doesn't show this information, but you can get it manually by crafting the ODATA query, albeit with less than 100% accuracy.

http://nuget.org/api/v2/Packages()?$filter=substringof('elmah',Dependencies)
Replace 'elmah' with your package's Id.
