    Windows Package Manager CLI (aka winget)

    I asked Demitrius and he said that this might be of use to you, it's the milestone tracker for the next release: https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli/milestone/36

  • winget-pkgs

    The Microsoft community Windows Package Manager manifest repository

    Yes, any installer (MSIX, MSI, EXE) may be added (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-pkgs). There is even a new tool the Windows Package Manager Manifest Creator (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-create) to make it easier to build a manifest and submit it to the GitHub repository. Portable / Stanalone .exe files and .zip files aren't supported yet, but they are on the backlog.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • winget-create

    The Windows Package Manager Manifest Creator command-line tool (aka wingetcreate)

    Yes, any installer (MSIX, MSI, EXE) may be added (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-pkgs). There is even a new tool the Windows Package Manager Manifest Creator (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-create) to make it easier to build a manifest and submit it to the GitHub repository.

  • winget-cli-restsource

    This project aims to provide a reference implementation for creating a REST based package source for the winget client.

    You can also stand up a private source. We have a reference implementation at https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli-restsource. It's a bit tough to deploy presently, but we're making investments there. A PR is in progress with some PowerShell to make it easier to deploy.
