NuGet packages for OWASP O2 Platform

NuGet is a really interesting mechanism to install plugins on top of you Visual Studio project in a really  straightforward way. Dinis Cruz made the first components of O2 Platform available in a NuGet package.

Now  NuGet presents a new paradigm to install useful tools and avoid all the complication of the XML configurations that usually is a pain.  It’s really interesting to have all the OWASP O2 functionality available in this way. I bet this is going to be a better way to make it available in future releases or in the way we  will publish features on top of  Visual Studio .Net.

The below image  show our look up :

Now we are going to look for our OWASP O2 packages:

In order to simplify our lives, this mechanism is a really good option :).
