This package was approved as a trusted package on 02 Jan 2015.


Chocolatey - think executables/application packages (like apt-get for Windows), not library packages. This is what the Chocolatey NuGet goodness is for.
Chocolatey allows you to install application nuggets and run executables from anywhere.
======= Executable Nuggets =======
For example, say you have an executable in the tools folder of your package named bob.exe. Then you can type
'chocolatey install yourPackageName [-source source] [-version version]' OR 'cinst yourPackageName [-source source] [-version version]'
and when it finishes you can type
and it will run your application executable.
======= Application Nuggets =======
Full on double rainbow. For example, say you type
'chocolatey install 7zip [-source source] [-version version]' OR 'cinst 7zip [-source source] [-version version]'

  • when it finishes you will have installed 7zip on your machine (in your add/remove programs).

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.
