Apache NuGet Repository Hosting - simple or dockerized

These scripts and xsl transforms, enable hosting of a simple NuGet repository under Apache (on Linux).

Installation (on Ubuntu)

  • If you don't already have Apache:

      # install apache
      sudo apt-get install -y apache2
      # start apache
      sudo service apache2 start
  • If you don't already have incron:

      # install incron
      sudo apt-get install -y incron
      # start incron
      sudo service incrond start
  • If you don't already have curl and git:

      # install incron
      sudo apt-get install -y curl git 
  • Create your repository:

      sudo mkdir -p /data/repos && sudo chown -R $(whoami):$(whoami) /data
      # clone this tool as your repository root
      git clone /data/repos/nuget
      # create your packages folder
      mkdir /data/repos/nuget/nupkg
      # make generate-manifest executable
      chmod u+x
  • Configure Apache to host your NuGet repo:

      sudo echo "<Directory /sshfs-pointer-int/>" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

    sudo echo " Options Indexes FollowSymLinks" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    sudo echo " AllowOverride None" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    sudo echo " Require all granted" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    sudo echo "</Directory>" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

      # modify /data/repos/nuget/misc/data.conf to your liking, then:
      sudo cp /data/repos/nuget/misc/data.conf /etc/apache2/conf-available/
      sudo a2enconf data

    sudo ln -s /data/repos /var/www/html/

      sudo service apache2 restart
  • Configure incron to regenerate the manifest when changes are detected

      # create an incron user table for your user account:
      sudo cp misc/incron-nuget-repo.conf /var/spool/incron/$(whoami)
      sudo chown root:$(whoami) /var/spool/incron/$(whoami)
      sudo chmod 600 /var/spool/incron/$(whoami)
      # grant permission to run incron jobs to your user account:
      echo $(whoami)> incron.allow
      sudo mv incron.allow /etc/
      sudo service incrond restart
  • Populate your repo and manifest:

      cd /data/repos/nuget
      # download some packages
      # (optional, but useful for testing, otherwise put your own packages in the nupkg folder)
      chmod u+x /data/repos/nuget/misc/

Usage should run (under incron) whenever a package is added or removed from the packages folder. After running the installation instructions above, you should be able to browse packages at http://localhost/repos/nuget/html/


The generate-manifest script does the following things (in pretty much the order listed):

  • locks execution so that only a single instance of the script can run at a given moment
  • changes the current working directory to the folder containing the script
  • extracts the .nuspec file from the .nupkg files
  • moves the extracted .nuspec file from repo_root/pkg_id.nuspec to repo_root/nuspec/pkg_id.pkg_ver.nuspec
  • performs an XSL transform on each .nuspec file to generate an html description of the package at repo_root/html/pkg_id.pkg_ver.html
  • creates an array of distinct package ids (package name without the version)
  • performs an XSL transform on all .nuspec files to generate an xml manifest of all packages at: repo_root/Packages (file without extension, NuGet convention)
  • creates a repo_root/.htaccess file, containing 302 redirects from repo_root/package/pkg_id to the latest version of the package at repo_root/nupkg/pkg_id.pkg_ver.nupkg (NuGet convention for package downloads)
  • copies the .nuspec file for the latest version of each package to repo_root/latest/
  • performs an xsl transform on all latest version .nuspec files to generate an html index of all latest versions of packages at repo_root/html/index.html
