GitHub Package Registry launches in beta

GitHub Package Registry

GitHub has launched the GitHub Package Registry, its new package management service.

Starting out as a limited beta, teh GitHub Package Registry gives developers, coders and organizations an easy way to publish public or private packages next to source code. For now, there is support for the likes of JavaScript (npm), Java (Maven), Ruby (RubyGems), .NET (NuGet), and Docker images, with the promise of more to come.

Announcing the new service, GitHub says: "GitHub Package Registry is fully integrated with GitHub, so you can use the same search, browsing, and management tools to find and publish packages as you do for your repositories. You can also use the same user and team permissions to manage code and packages together. GitHub Package Registry provides fast, reliable downloads backed by GitHub's global CDN".

Simina Pasat goes on to explain:

When you work on a project that has dependencies on packages, it’s important for you to trust them, understand their code, and connect with the community who built them. And inside organizations, you need to be able to quickly find what’s been approved for your use. GitHub Package Registry makes it easy to use the same familiar GitHub interface to find public packages anywhere on GitHub, or private packages within your organization or repositories.

Compatibility with common package management clients means that you can so you can publish packages with your choice of tools. It is also possible to publish multiple packages of different types.
