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

Installing with NuGet

NuGet is a popular .NET package manager.

Progress maintains the Telerik NuGet Feed for registered users and all Kendo UI for jQuery official releases and service packs are published there as well.

The legacy https://nuget.telerik.com/nuget server is now deprecated. Make sure to switch to the new https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json server, which is faster, lighter, and reduces the number of requests from your NuGet client.

As of R3 2023 the Kendo UI bundles do not include the jQuery library in their js directories and you can download jQuery using NuGet package manager or use other source for the jQuery library.

1. Choose the Required Package

The Telerik NuGet Feed provides the following Kendo UI for jQuery packages:

  • KendoUIProfessional—The commercial Kendo UI for jQuery version.
  • KendoUIProfessional.Trial—The trial Kendo UI for jQuery version.
  • KendoUICore—The open-source Kendo UI distribution which contains only the open-sourced components.

2. Register the Feed on Your System

To add the Telerik NuGet feed as a package source on your machine and access the packages, use either of the following approaches:

The following video summarizes the steps for adding the Telerik NuGet feed to your NuGet sources.

Add the Feed with the NuGet CLI

To register the Telerik NuGet Feed on your system by using the 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 following example stores a token in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file. Your original credentials cannot be obtained from this token.

        NuGet Sources Add -Name "telerik.com" -Source "https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json" -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 "telerik.com" -Source "https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText
    

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

        NuGet Sources Update -Name "telerik.com" -Source "https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText
