Welcome to the Glimpse Documentation! Here we hope to introduce you to the various tutorials, concepts and APIs you might need when discovering and using Glimpse.
Before leveraging the Glimpse extensibility model to add functionality to Glimpse, first check to see if someone already has. There are three main ways to find Glimpse extensions:
Searching NuGet.org for 'Glimpse' reveals many Glimpse packages. Unfortunately, packages that have nothing to do with Glimpse, but have the word 'glimpse' in their metadata, also appear in the search results.
Because of the way NuGet.org search works, the Glimpse website maintains a more precise list of Glimpse extensions with links back to NuGet.org. Unfortunately, packages downloaded directly from NuGet.org itself do not "auto install", for that you need a package feed.
A curated package feed of Glimpse extensions is available. Adding the package feed to Visual Studio is the easiest way to keep up to date with new Glimpse extensions and updates.
The feed can be added to Visual Studio by going to
Tools > Library Package Manager > Package Manager Settings > Package Sources and adding a source named
Glimpse Extensions Gallery pointing to
To make adding the package feed even easier, GetGlimpse.com participates in Package Source Discovery. Simply open
Package Manager Console and issue the following commands:
Install-Package DiscoverPackageSources Discover-PackageSources -Url "http://getGlimpse.com"
An additional package source will now be available in Visual Studio full of Glimpse Extensions!
