Welcome to the Chocolatey Community Package Repository! The packages found in this section of the site are provided, maintained, and moderated by the community.
Every version of each package undergoes a rigorous moderation process before it goes live that typically includes:
- Security, consistency, and quality checking
- Installation testing
- Virus checking through VirusTotal
- Human moderators who give final review and sign off
If you are an organization using Chocolatey, we want your experience to be fully reliable. Due to the nature of this publicly offered repository, reliability cannot be guaranteed. Packages offered here are subject to distribution rights, which means they may need to reach out further to the internet to the official locations to download files at runtime.
Fortunately, distribution rights do not apply for internal use. With any edition of Chocolatey (including the free open source edition), you can host your own packages and cache or internalize existing community packages.
Your use of the packages on this site means you understand they are not supported or guaranteed in any way. Learn more...

To edit the metadata for a package, please upload an updated version of the package.
Chocolatey's Community Package Repository currently does not allow updating package metadata on the website. This helps ensure that the package itself (and the source used to build the package) remains the one true source of package metadata.
This does require that you increment the package version.

Implements installing of Chocolatey packages from the web using choco:// Protocol with choco-protocol-support.cmd (and Sudo).
WHO IS THIS FOR?
choco-protocol-support is designed for those who aren't comfortable with the Command Prompt or just don't like to type much. choco-protocol-support allows you to install Chocolatey packages by simply clicking choco:// URLs in your web browser. choco-protocol-support is also useful for support professionals who know the difficulty of getting end users to type in commands correctly. Now you can give end users a URL via e-mail or corporate software web page to click and have a Chocolatey package installed!
If you like the convienance of this package, you should also check out Install Chocolatey Packages from your Web Browser which is very similar in concept as well as (unofficial) Chocolatey Shortcuts (Config). All three of these make installing Chocolatey packages very user friendly.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
choco-protocol-support configures Windows to use choco://packagename URLs and pass them along to choco-protocol-support.cmd which then processes the URL and runs Chocolatey's cinst.exe ("choco install" shim) with help from Sudo to install the package. Lets hope this functionality gets built into a future version of Chocolatey and then this package can be deprecated. UPDATE: Added to Chocolatey 1.0.0 milestone!
Easy peasy, Chocolateasy!

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).
Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
