It would be good to be able to define paths to custom artifacts using wildcards, e.g. bin\*.nupkg

    I've deployed update with wildcard support. This is how it works:

    To push a single file specify its full path (relative to repository root):

    somefile.ext or bin\debug\somefile.ext

    To push entire folder as a single zip archive (the name of zip will be the name of folder):

    somefolder or solution\project\bin

    Wildcards. To push all NuGet packages from specific folder:


    To push NuGet packages from any bin folder (similar to NAnt or MSBuild wildcards):


    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Working as advertised, thank you!

    One small point. It seems to bork when forward slashes are used, e.g. bin/*.nupkg. It's probably better to allow either / or \.

    Will add forward slash support, sure!

    Would it be possible to make * only mean the current directory? Normally, you have to do bin/**/*.nupkg to do all NuGet packages, however AppVeyor goes reccursive if I do bin/*.nupkg. This is a problem as my build-script generates double of all packages for some reason (can't change that part for now, maybe it'll get resolved later), so I get bin/Lib.nupkg and bin/Lib/Lib.nupkg.

    Well, I don't think matching bin/Lib/Lib.nupkg with bin/*.nupkg pattern is a normal behavior. Looks like an issue to me. I'm going to make sure it matches bin/Lib.nupkg only.

    The issue has been fixed and update deployed. Now bin/*.nupkg will matchbin/Lib.nupkg only, but not bin/Lib/Lib.nupkg. To match all *.nupkg recursively use bin/**/*.nupkg or **/*.nupkg (in all folders).
