Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 29 Mar 2015.

Description

Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows (like apt-get but for Windows). It was designed to be a decentralized framework for quickly installing applications and tools that you need. It is built on the NuGet infrastructure currently using PowerShell as its focus for delivering packages from the distros to your door, err computer.

Chocolatey is brought to you by the work and inspiration of the community, the work and thankless nights of the Chocolatey Team, with Rob heading up the direction.

You can host your own sources and add them to Chocolatey, you can extend Chocolatey's capabilities, and folks, it's only going to get better.

Commands

There are quite a few commands you can call - you should check out the command reference. Here are the most common:

  • Search - choco search something
  • List - choco list -lo
  • Install - choco install baretail
  • Pin - choco pin windirstat
  • Upgrade - choco upgrade baretail
  • Uninstall - choco uninstall baretail

Alternative installation sources (TEMPORARILY DISABLED IN 0.9.9):

  • Install ruby gem - choco install compass -source ruby
  • Install python egg - choco install sphynx -source python
  • Install windows feature - choco install IIS -source windowsfeatures
  • Install webpi feature - choco install IIS7.5Express -source webpi

For more advanced commands and switches, use choco -? or choco command -h. You can also look at the command reference, including how you can force a package to install the x86 version of a package.

Create Packages?

We have some great guidance on how to do that. Where? I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with sticky! Wiki!

In that mess there is a link to the Helper Reference.

========================
Chocolatey
========================
Welcome to Chocolatey, your local machine repository built on the NuGet infrastructure. Chocolatey allows you to install application packages to your machine with the goodness of a #chocolatey #nuget combo. 
Application executables get added to the path automatically so you can call them from anywhere (command line/powershell prompt), not just in Visual Studio.

Lets get Chocolatey!
----------
Visual Studio -
----------
Please run Initialize-Chocolatey one time per machine to set up the repository. 
If you are upgrading, please remember to run Initialize-Chocolatey again.
After you have run Initiliaze-Chocolatey, you can safely uninstall the chocolatey package from your current Visual Studio solution.
----------
Alternative NuGet -
----------
If you are not using NuGet in Visual Studio, please navigate to the directory with the chocolateysetup.psm1 and run that in Powershell, followed by Initialize-Chocolatey.
Upgrade is the same, just run Initialize-Chocolatey again.
----------
Once you've run initialize or upgrade, you can uninstall this package from the local project without affecting your chocolatey repository.

  .DESCRIPTION
    This will initialize the Chocolatey tool by
      a) setting up the "nugetPath" (the location where all chocolatey nuget packages will be installed)
      b) Installs chocolatey into the "nugetPath"
            c) Instals .net 4.0 if needed
      d) Adds chocolaty to the PATH environment variable so you have access to the chocolatey|cinst commands.
  .PARAMETER  NuGetPath
    Allows you to override the default path of (C:\Chocolatey\) by specifying a directory chocolaty will install nuget packages.

  .EXAMPLE
    C:\PS> Initialize-Chocolatey

    Installs chocolatey into the default C:\Chocolatey\ directory.

  .EXAMPLE
    C:\PS> Initialize-Chocolatey -nugetPath "D:\ChocolateyInstalledNuGets\"

    Installs chocolatey into the custom directory D:\ChocolateyInstalledNuGets\

0.9.9

This also includes issues that were being tracked in the old Chocolatey repository: Chocolatey 0.9.9.

The two links above will not capture everything that has changed, since this is a complete rewrite. We broke everything. If this were a v1+, it would be a major release. But we are less than v1, so 0.9.9 it is! ;)

Okay, so we didn't really break everything. We have maintained nearly full compatibility with how you pass options into choco, although the output may be a bit different (but better, we hope) and in at least one case, additional switches (or a feature setting) is/are required - we limited this to security related changes only.

We also fixed and improved a bunch of things, so we feel the trade off is well worth the changes.

We'll try to capture everything here that you should know about. Please call choco -? or choco.exe -h to get started.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Known Issues
  • TEMPORARY install all is missing - this is expected to be back in 0.9.10 - see #23
  • Alternative sources (webpi,ruby,python,cygwin, windowsfeature) do not work yet. This is expected to be fixed in 0.9.10 - see #14
  • Progress bar is missing when downloading until we are using internal posh components for Packages - see #56
  • See Feature Parity for items not yet reimplemented from older PowerShell Chocolatey client (v0.9.8.32 and below).

BREAKING CHANGES

  • [Security] Prompt for confirmation: For security reasons, we now stop for confirmation before changing the state of the system on most commands. You can pass -y to confirm any prompts or set a value in the config that will globally confirm - see #52 (NOTE: This is one of those additional switches we were talking about)
  • [Security] If your default installation is still at c:\Chocolatey, this version will force a move to ProgramData and update the environment settings - see #7
  • Configuration Breaking Changes:
    1. You now have one config file to interact with in %ChocolateyInstall%\config - your user config is no longer valid and can be removed once you migrate settings to the config.
    2. The config will no longer be overwritten on upgrade.
    3. Choco no longer interacts with NuGet's config file at all. You will need to reset all of your apiKeys (see features for apikey). On the plus side, the keys will work for all users of the machine, unlike NuGet's apiKeys (only work for the user that sets them).
    4. This also means you can no longer use useNugetForSources. It has been removed as a config setting.
  • Packaging Changes:
    1. Choco now installs packages without version numbers on folders. This means quite a few things...
    2. Upgrading packages doesn't install a new version next to an old version, it actually upgrades.
    3. Dependencies resolve at highest available version, not the minimum version as before - see Chocolatey #415
  • Package Maintenance Changes:
    1. Read the above about apikey changes
    2. Read above about dependency resolution changes.
  • Deprecated/Removed Commands:
    1. installmissing has been removed. It was deprecated awhile ago, so this should not be a surprise.
    2. choco version has been deprecated and will be removed in v1. Use choco upgrade pkgName --noop or choco upgrade pkgName -whatif instead.
    3. Write-ChocolateySuccess, Write-ChocolateyFailure have been deprecated.
    4. update is now upgrade. update has been deprecated and will be removed/replaced in v1. Update will be reincarnated later for a different purpose. Hint: It rhymes with smackage pindexes.
