New to Kendo UI for jQuery? Download free 30-day trial

Installing with NuGet

Telerik maintains a NuGet Feed for registered users.

NuGet is a popular .NET package manager. Official releases and service packs of Kendo UI are available for registered users.

The NuGet Feed provides the following NuGet packages:

  • KendoUIProfessional—Kendo UI for jQuery Commercial version.
  • KendoUIProfessional.Trial—Kendo UI for jQuery Trial version.
  • KendoUICore—Kendo UI Core (contains only the Core widgets).

The Telerik Private NuGet Feed

To use the Telerik NuGet Feed as a Package Source, use the NuGet CLI. Or, use the UI provided from Visual Studio for configuring authenticated NuGet feeds.

The following video explains how you can add the Telerik NuGet feed. If you prefer to do this yourself, follow the rest of this article.

Setup with NuGet CLI

  1. Download the latest NuGet executable.
  2. Open a command prompt and change the path to where the nuget.exe is downloaded.
  3. The command from the example below stores a token in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file. Your original credentials cannot be obtained from this token.

        NuGet Sources Add -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password"

    If you are unable to connect to the feed by using encrypted credentials, try the alternative approach of storing credentials in clear text.

        NuGet Sources Add -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText

    If you have already stored a token instead of storing the credentials as clear text, you could update the definition in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file using the following command:

        NuGet Sources Update -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText

Setup with NuGet Package Manager

  1. Open Visual Studio.

  2. Go to Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Settings, select Package Manager Sources and then click the + button.

  3. Choose feed Name, set the feed URL to: and click OK.
