It is actually a really good question how to use nuget to get codecontracts properly
We have our custom tools around nuget to get nuget packages into special tools directory
for now I just not sure how we can use nuget for tools distribution
But I'll play with different required version to check how to use it.

Ok, I think I've found out the solution. Working on the new package version...

I would think that a custom .targets that NuGet installs should do the trick
so Code Contracts can be installed in a project just by adding the NuGet package

The problem that nuspec file should have developmentDependency element with (I think) tools folder with binaries
What you've mentioned totally makes sense though:)
@yaakov-h Can you try to install the package once again?
this time it should not fail:)
I've tried it
and yep, the assumption was correct the package should definitely have tools folder if developmentDependency was specified

package installation is working now, though it seems redundant to have Contract binaries in Bin\ and in Tools\
I tried adding the following to the csproj:
<Import Project="$(CodeContractsInstallDir)\MsBuild\v$(VisualStudioVersion)\Microsoft.CodeContracts.targets"/>
I get this error:
1>C:\Temp\ContractNuGetTest\packages\DotNet.Contracts.1.10.10126.4\MsBuild\v14.0\Microsoft.CodeContracts.targets(542,8): error MSB4094: "obj\Debug\Decl\ContractNuGetTest.dll;obj\Debug\Decl\ContractNuGetTest.dll" is an invalid value for the "OutputAssembly" parameter of the "Csc" task. Multiple items cannot be passed into a parameter of type "Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITaskItem".
I wonder is maybe MSI-contracts is conflicting with NuGet-contracts?

@SergeyTeplyakov Is there any reason in particular that the declarative bins are in $(IntermediateOutputDir)\Decl (obj\ somewhere) instead of $(OutputDir)\Decl (bin\ somewhere)?

@yaakov-h regarding your last question: the answer - I have no idea:)
Let's try to fix this stuff:)
We never released anything like this, and it seems that original implementation is far from perfect:(

ok, I've filed my request in #348
also, looking at Microsoft.CodeContracts.targets, it doesn't look like we handle .NET 4.5.3 and 4.6.1 properly
Am I missing something, or do those fall back to .NET 3.5?

@yaakov-h regarding the targets, it seems that this is a bug and we need to fix this.
for #348: any ideas how to implement this?
Jan 27 2016 23:17
@SergeyTeplyakov: For #348, we currently just monkeypatch the targets (from the MSI) by doing a text replacement of "<CodeContractsDeclDir>$(IntermediateOutputPath)Decl\</CodeContractsDeclDir>" with "<CodeContractsDeclDir>$(OutputPath)\Decl\</CodeContractsDeclDir>"
so that is the simplest, but I don't know if it's something you'd want to upstream as core
also I'm not quite sure what the difference is between $(OutputPath) and $(OutDir)
