Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade alacritty.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.3.0-rc1'" --prerelease [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade alacritty.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.3.0-rc1'" --prerelease
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

NOTE

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Description

Alacritty

Travis build Status
Appveyor build Status

Alacritty is the fastest terminal emulator in existence. Using the GPU for
rendering enables optimizations that simply aren't possible in other emulators.
Alacritty currently supports macOS and Linux, and Windows.

About

Alacritty is focused on simplicity and performance. The performance goal means
it should be faster than any other terminal emulator available. The simplicity
goal means that it doesn't have features such as tabs or splits (which can be
better provided by a window manager or terminal multiplexer) nor
niceties like a GUI config editor.

The software is considered to be at an alpha level of readiness--there are
missing features and bugs to be fixed, but it is already used by many as a daily
driver.

Precompiled binaries are available for Windows through appveyor.
Precompiled binaries for other platforms are minimally blocked on a stable config format. For now, Alacritty must be
built from source.

Further information

Installation

Some operating systems already provide binaries for Alacritty, for everyone else the instructions
to build Alacritty from source, can be found here.

Windows

Prebuilt binaries can be downloaded from the artifacts section of appveyor.

Configuration

Although it's possible the default configuration would work on your system,
you'll probably end up wanting to customize it anyhow. There is a default
alacritty.yml, alacritty_macos.yml, and alacritty_windows.yml at the git repository root.
Alacritty looks for the configuration file as the following paths:

%UserProfile%\alacritty.yml

Many configuration options will take effect immediately upon saving changes to
the config file. The only exception is the font and dimensions sections
which requires Alacritty to be restarted. For further explanation of the config
file, please consult the comments in the default config file.

Issues (known, unknown, feature requests, etc)

If you run into a problem with Alacritty, please file an issue. If you've got a
feature request, feel free to ask about it. Keep in mind that Alacritty is very
much not looking to be a feature-rich terminal emulator with all sorts of bells
and widgets. It's primarily a cross-platform, blazing fast tmux renderer that
Just Works.

FAQ

Is it really the fastest terminal emulator?

In the terminals I've benchmarked against, alacritty is either faster, WAY
faster, or at least neutral. There are no benchmarks in which I've found
Alacritty to be slower.

My arrow keys don't work.

It sounds like you deleted some key bindings from your config file. Please
reference the default config file to restore them.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
