SciChart NuGet Feed – Reliability Update

SciChart NuGet Feed – Reliability Update

Back in October 2014 when we announced our NuGet feed for nightly builds, we never realised that in just over 6 months we’d have almost 5,000 downloads and many of our customers integrating SciChart packages directly into their build systems!

So when the ABT Software NuGet feed (which we host ourselves) goes down, we get support requests, sometimes within minutes. It’s affecting your work, as a lot of you have come to rely on it, and you need near 100% uptime.

As a result, today we’re trying out a professional hosted NuGet service – provided by We have a new experimental feed up which you can access today. If this goes well we will switch over to MyGet permanently, but for now both feeds are active.

Give the new feed a try, the Feed URL is

Setting up Visual Studio to get SciChart Packages via NuGet

Have a look at our page Getting SciChart Nightly Builds with NuGet which shows you how to setup Visual Studio to consume packages from the ABT Software NuGet feed. To try the new feed, simply create a new connection, e.g. ABT Software (2) and use the new URL which is

Adding NuGet Package sources via Visual Studio -> Tools -> Options -> NuGet Package Manager -> Package Sources

We will run both feeds in parallel for a while, and depending on your feedback, we might switch over permanently to the new MyGet feed.

Let us know your feedback!

  • The new NuGet feed is experimental and we require your feedback before switching over permanently. For the time-being, we will run both feeds in parallel.
  • The new feed runs over SSL on port 443 (https). Customers behind corporate firewalls or proxies should now be able to access the new feed where the previous feed was blocked, since it was on port 81.
  • The new experimental feed is NuGet as a Service provided by MyGet – professional NuGet hosting. We’re plugging it as the owner responded to our support requests almost as fast as we do, so this is our way of saying thanks 😉

Best regards,
[SciChart Team]
