Installing a package without included tools

Feb 20, 2012 at 8:15 PM

Is there any Install-Package command line parameter (or some other sneaky feature) which will let me install just the lib folder of a package, ignoring any tools and/or content folders?

Take a package like NHibernate Profiler. It has a single DLL which I would love to have as a reference in my project, but I really don't want to pull the actual profiling software into my source code tree.

Is this "track lib folder only" feature supported by NuGet?

No, there is no such option available in NuGet.

Perhaps you could contact the owner of the NHibernate Profiler package and ask him to split the package into two: one core package contains only the .dll, and the current package will depend on the core one and add contents, tools.
