Active Nexus instances have grown 100% within the past 18 months. Just awesome. And, YOU, our user community made it happen. As of today, we surpassed the milestone of 50,000 active Nexus installs! Thank you.
There are those of us that like to stay on the cutting edge of technology, fiddling with the latest and greatest, even if it means the experience might be a little rough around the edges. Yes, that might mean suffering through a bunch of issues despite a warning not to install Mavericks on our main […]
Recently at Microsoft’s TechEd in Europe, Marcel de Vries, Visual Studio ALM MVP and CTO Xpirit, wowed the audience when presenting a talk on how to accelerate continuous delivery by improving NuGet component management.
The NuGet package manager has become the standard for developing software on the Microsoft platform which includes.NET and the NuGet Gallery that has emerged as a large public open source package repository. Sonatype Nexus, on the other hand, is the standard repository or component manager software running on servers from small open source projects and teams to multi-national Fortune 500 companies.
It is live! Within an extremely short turnaround time the Sonatype Operations team has coordinated certificates and other setup with our excellent CDN provider Fastly and you can now all enjoy the content of the Central Repository via HTTPS/SSL.
RebelLabs recently put out their Java Tools and Technologies Landscape report and we were very pleased to see Nexus chosen as the repository manager of choice by 64% of developers. We saw this same preference carry over in our own recent Open Source Development survey, where 49% of respondents indicated they used Nexus as their local component repository manager. Which brought us to analyze these market trends further .By digging into the log data from the Central Repository, we were able to capture more compelling proof that indeed, Nexus holds a significant portion of the repository manager marketplace and for good reason.
For those that don’t know me, I am the new Nexus community advocate and now moderator of Nexus Live. I’ve kicked off my first session of the year with fellow community advocate, Manfred Moser and Manager QA & Support, Rich Seddon.
Note: This post was inspired by Manfred’s post “You don’t do repository driven development? Where have you been?”. It immediately made me think of Star Trek… When I roll up to a new client in desperate need of build help, there’s always a chance I’ll have a “Scotty moment” – a moment when I pick […]
Until yesterday I had a Maven Settings file in ~/.m2/settings.xml that contained following XML: <server> <id>central</id> <username>tobrien</username> <password>ch1c@g0r00lz</password> </server> Silly, right? The only way to authenticate against Nexus was to drop my plaintext username and password in my Settings file, for anyone who gained access to my laptop to see. I’ve never been too happy […]
Do you walk around all day wishing you could write elegant Lisp code? I know I do. When I’m in the mood for Lisp I usually go straight to Clojure, and when I’m deep in a state of Lisp-induced productivity, I’ll probably want to automate my Clojure projects with Leiningen. Leiningen is big in the […]
