Supply build dependencies as artifacts built by another project?

I have a number of projects (not MSBUILD-based) which need to use a custom deployment library ( a mixture of PS scripts and a DLL) which is built in another project.

This might be the wrong way to approach this, but I was wondering if my "tool builder" project could push those as artifacts, which I could then install in the pre-build script of the dependent projects? As far as I can see artifact storage is private to the project, not shared across the account?

Or would it be better to push them to S3 or Azure blob and install from there?

Or even wrap in a private nuget?

Any guidance much appreciated...

    I would definitely go the NuGet way! You get all benefits with it like VS/cmd integration, versioning, updates.

    Thanks - I think yuo are probably right!

    I was getting hung up on the fact that the dependent projects are not msbuild, but of course I can do a nuget restore and it will pull the package in...

    thanks Feodor
