help or ? command (NuGet CLI)

Applies to: all • Supported versions: all

Displays general help information and help information about specific commands.

Usage

nuget help [command] [options]
nuget ? [command] [options]

where [command] identifies a specific command for which to display help.

Warning

With some commands, be mindful to specify help first, as with nuget help install, because there is a package named "help" on nuget.org. If you give the command nuget install help, you'll not get help on the install command but will instead install the package named help.
