Nuget Package Visualizer Extension for VS2015

Nuget Package Visualizer Extension for VS2015

Currently the Nuget Package Visualizer is not available in VS2015. (

We like to use this tool to get a good overview of our Nuget package dependencies. It can also be helpful when troubleshooting build issues, specifically with retrieving packages. Using Pascal’s code as a good base to start from (thanks!), I created a Nuget Package Visualizer extension for VS2015. I needed to modify it a bit to match the original visualizer’s functionality from VS2013 and prior.

You can download the source here on GitHub:

I have tested it out with a variety of projects, but of course additional testers or feedback are always welcome. Hopefully some others can get use out of this until it’s introduced again into VS2015 (if it is…?)

    Any chance you could port this for VS 2017?

      Hi Eric,

      I haven’t had much time lately unfortunately, but all the source code is available out on Github, if someone else is willing to take a look.
