PackageManagement (aka OneGet)
PackageManagement is supported in Windows, Linux and MacOS now. We periodically make binary drop to PowerShellCore, meaning PackageManagement is a part of PowerShell Core releases. Also PackageManagement and PowershellGet Modules are regularly getting updated in PowerShellGallery.com.
Thus checkout the latest version from PowerShellGallery.com.
You can follow @PSOneGet on Twitter to be notified of every new build.

What is PackageManagement (OneGet)?
OneGet is a Windows package manager, renamed as PackageManagement. It is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed.
With OneGet, you can
- Manage a list of software repositories in which packages can be searched, acquired, and installed
- Search and filter your repositories to find the packages you need
- Seamlessly install and uninstall packages from one or more repositories with a single PowerShell command
Let's Try it
- Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, or down-level Windows OS + WMF5
- Linux or Mac with the PowerShellCore

You can run
install-module PowerShellGet to install the latest PackageManagment and PowerShellGet from PowerShellGallery.
Downloading the Source Code
OneGet repo has a number of other repositories embeded as submodules. To make things easy, you can just clone recursively:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/OneGet/oneget.git
If you already cloned but forgot to use
--recursive, you can update submodules manually:
git submodule update --init
Building the code
# After cloning this repository, go to the project folder: > cd oneget > cd src # download the dotnet cli tool > .\bootstrap.ps1 # building OneGet for fullclr > .\build.ps1 net451 #building OneGet for coreclr > .\build.ps1 netstandard1.6
If successfully built above, you should be able to see a folder:
oneget\src\out\PackageManagement\ whose layout looks like below:
We can use
publish-module to create a .nupkg. Assuming you want to put the generated .nupkg in c:\test folder. You can do something like below. Note I cloned to E:\OneGet folder.
cd E:\OneGet\oneget\src\out\PackageManagement Register-PSRepository -name local -SourceLocation c:\test Get-PSRepository Publish-Module -path .\ -Repository local PS E:\OneGet\oneget\src\out\PackageManagement> dir c:\test\PackageManagement*.nupkg Directory: C:\test Mode LastWriteTime Length Name ---- ------------- ------ ---- -a---- 11/4/2016 4:15 PM 1626335 PackageManagement.22.214.171.124.nupkg
Then you can do
find-module -Repository local install-module -Repository local -Name PackageManagement
to get the newly built PackageManagement on your machines.
You can also manually copy the OneGet binaries. For example, copy the entire
E:\OneGet\oneget\src\out\PackageManagement folder you just built to your
If you are running within PowerShellCore,
similarily drop the PackageManagement folder to your
or copy to
if you are running on Linux or Mac.
Note: OneGet version number can be found from the PackageManagement.psd1 file.
Testing the code
> cd oneget > cd Test > & '.\run-tests.ps1' fullclr > & '.\run-tests.ps1' coreclr
Understanding the OneGet code repository
OneGet is under rapid development, and so you get to see just how the sausage is being made. I try to keep the master branch clean and buildable, but my own working branch can get pretty damn wild and I make no bones about some of this. I work fast, I make big changes, and I try to keep my eye on the target.
Feel free to clone the repository, and check out the different branches:
There are currently three branches in the git repository:
Contributing to OneGet
Contributions to the OneGet project will require the signing of a CLA -- contact @jianyunt for details...
In the immediate time frame, we won't be taking pull requests to the core itself, as we still have many masters at Microsoft to keep happy, and I have a lot of release process stuff I have to go thru to make them happy.
There are some exceptions to the where I can take Pull Requests immediately:
Pull Requests to the Package Providers are instantly welcome
Any unit tests, BVT tests or -Edge only features, we can take pull requests for as well
Docs, Wiki, content, designs, bugs -- everything gleefully accepted :D
Participating in the OneGet Community
I'm eager to work with anyone who wants to help shape the future of Package Management on Windows -- your opinions, feedback and code can help everyone.
We have an online meetings. We will twitter the exact time as well as put a note on GitHub site. (everyone welcome!)
You can see archives of the previous meetings available on
All meeting notes are recorded under OneDrive PackageManagement
You can see issues, pull requests, backlog items, etc. in the OneGet Dashboard
