Since Nexus Repository 3 was released, uploading components to a repository has been a job for your build tools. Most of the time, this is the right way to do things. However, there are a few situations when it’s not.
- You have third-party dependencies that aren’t available in a public repository.
- Your machine doesn’t have build tools installed.
- You (or someone else in your organization) lacks the requisite command line knowledge.
Because of this, we’ve decided to steal a page from Nexus Repository 2’s book and provide a way to upload components from the UI. We’re starting development of this feature soon, but we need your feedback to make this feature as good as it can be.
In late September, we will be conducting usability tests on designs for the new Nexus Repository Manager 3 upload experience. If you would like to participate and provide your feedback, please signup here. Sessions are 30-minutes long and conducted over WebEx. Participants who are residents of most countries will receive a $50 Amazon gift card as a thank you for participating in a call.
