    Hi Telerik, Eric, 

    Thanks again for Fiddler and FiddlerCore, they're amazing tools.

    I and others have asked for years for a NuGet package for FiddlerCore. The lack of such a package is preventing the release of  https://github.com/mausch/ElmahFiddler/issues/4 , complicating the tests for https://github.com/Azure/azure-storage-net#test-dependencies and probably causing many other issues for other projects, open source or not.

    So now that Telerik bought Fiddler, is there any chance of releasing FiddlerCore as a NuGet package? Telerik already publishes a lot of NuGet packages so it would make sense to publish FiddlerCore too.

    Thanks,
    Mauricio

    Hi, Mauricio--

    I hadn't considered the fact that NuGET packages can take dependencies in this way. I'll have a look at whether I can get a FiddlerCore package on NuGET and whether folks will find that confusing (since FiddlerCore requires a license for commercial use).

    Regards,

    The good thing is, NuGet has options to require the acceptance of a license when the user installs a package (even via indirect dependencies).
    You'd just have to put the license in some URL, similarly to http://www.telerik.com/purchase/license-agreement/data-access .
    Then create the NuGet package pointing the <licenseUrl> to this URL and define <requireLicenseAcceptance>true</requireLicenseAcceptance> .

    See http://docs.nuget.org/docs/reference/nuspec-reference for more details.

    Cheers

    Can you give https://www.nuget.org/packages/FiddlerCore/4.4.8.4 a look and let me know if I've done it horribly wrong?

    thanks,

    Hi Eric,

    Can you confirm whether Fiddler itself requires a paid license for commercial use and also what type of license it has if free?

    Many thanks,
    Felicity

    Felicity--

    Fiddler, the desktop application, is available at no cost. The license agreement is shown on the very first screen of the installer.
