Declaration

public static PackageManager.Requests.AddRequest Add(string identifier);

Parameters

identifier A string representing the package to be added:

- To install a specific version of a package, use a package identifier ("name@version"). This is the only way to install a pre-release version.
- To install the latest compatible (released) version of a package, specify only the package name.
- To install a git package, specify a git url.
- To install a local package, specify a value in the format "file:/path/to/package/folder".
- To install a local tarball package, specify a value in the format "file:/path/to/package-file.tgz".

ArgumentException is thrown if identifier is null or empty.

Returns

AddRequest An AddRequest instance, which you can use to monitor the asynchronous operation, and retrieve the result when the operation is complete.

Description

Adds a package dependency to the Project. Requesting a new or different dependency often leads to changing installed packages, but only after the Package Manager constructs a dependency graph to solve any version conflicts. For more information, see Dependency and resolution.

Note: Make sure any other Client operations have completed before calling this method. For more information, see the note on the Client class reference page.
