Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Thought about posting this on programmers.stackexchange.com but figured I would try here first:

Has anyone here worked with NuGet for their projects? I am looking for some recommendations on packages that people have found useful.

Everyone knows about the jQuery, the NUnit, the NHibernate, the ELMAH, etc. (or at least, I presume they do) but what are some of the lesser known but still useful packages?

Here are a couple that I found interesting:

  • AntiXSS
  • MVCMailer
  • DotLESS
Is there some sort of functionality you are looking for? Simply searching for packages and using them because they sound useful isn't the ideal scenario (major scope creep). If there's a particular problem you are trying to solve, then we may be able to help guide you to a particular package to help you out. –  Brian Ball Mar 16 '11 at 3:20
No. This is not related to a specific project or problem. My intent was to gather a list of recommendations that might come in handy in the future. –  Athtar Mar 16 '11 at 4:14
