I installed a few nice NuGet Packages on a project.
Then I wanted another project in my solution to reference those as well.
Currently the only option to add the package to a new project is to launch the NuGet UI and search for the component again and install it again. I would love to not have to do this (and not wait for NuGet to start up either ;-)
* Display list of available packages in the NuGet UI without having to wait for the download to take place (might require some ugly UI changes)
* Add this to "Add Reference" dialog in the "Packages" tab. This "Packages" tab shows some pre-baked libraries from the system, it might make sense to also display libraries that are available in the project.
The old addin copied Visual Studio and had a dialog that you could open at the solution level and then add packages to multiple projects in one step. This old dialog is available in a separate addin that extends the built-in addin.
Another idea from the design team was to support drag and drop of the packages to other projects.
Drag and drop from another project seems like an idiom that nobody would discover.
I did drag and drop for years in Gnome. We sprinkled drag and drop *everywhere*. Nobody ever found those features, they were cute, they demoed great, nobody resorted to using them.
Currently added packages doesn't visible on "Add Reference" dialog/Packages tab
