Add Library Package Reference. Search for Hangfire, and you should see a list of packages. Click Install, and you’re done. Here is the list of Hangfire packages:

Continuous Integration Feed
Can’t wait for a new release? Not a problem as there is a continuous integration feed for Hangfire packages hosted in AppVeyor. After each successful commit to the
dev branches or any open pull request based on these branches, pre-release packages are pushed to the feed automatically. Here is its url:
Adding the feed
To configure a CI feed in Visual Studio open Tools → NuGet Package Manager → Package Manager Settings and add a new feed.
To configure a project NuGet feed on your development machine run this command:
nuget sources add -Name hangfire-ci -Source https://ci.appveyor.com/nuget/hangfire-6d3854sflnyb
After adding the feed, use the NuGet Package Manager to obtain new versions of packages. In Visual Studio Solution Explorer, right-click the References node and click Manage NuGet Packages… and ensure that Include Prerelease option is turned on.
