You want to create a nuget package for a class library in order to use it in different applications. You want to execute this task every time you build the project/solution.
In short, you need to create a .nuspec file for the project and then use a Post-Build Event Command Line to create the package.
For demonstration purposes I created a small class library project that contains my XmlSerializer class. I’ll show you step by step how to create a nuget package for that project.
