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 comicreader-plex -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [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 comicreader-plex -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

A Plex Media Server channel.

Browse and view locally stored CBZ, CBR, CB7 comic book archives. It currently acts like a file browser, starting at the directory specified in the channels preferences.

Each user of the channel will have their reading status saved for each comic. Comics can be marked as read/unread and can be resumed from your previous position.

Format Support

  • .CBZ - the ideal format for the channel. Consider converting archives to zip, it's much easier to work with.
  • .CBR - requires unrar.
  • .CB7 - requires 7-Zip (windows). or p7zip (linux, osx).
  • .zip, .rar, and .7z should also work.

Windows

  • unrar
  • 7-Zip
  • set channel preferences paths:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR\unrar.exe if you installed WinRAR, or C:\wherever\unrar.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\7-Zip\7z.exe if you installed 7-Zip.

Plex Client Support

working: OpenPHT, PMP, Plex Web, Android, iOS

Channel Preferences

  • Comics Path: path to the root directory of where comic archives are stored.
  • Unrar Executable Path: path to unrar binary. leave blank if unrar is in $PATH.
  • 7-Zip Executable Path: path to 7z binary. leave blank if 7z is in $PATH.
  • Items per page: default: 50 number of directories/comics to show per page.
  • Number of pages to include before resume page: default: 5 when going to the resume option on a comic, the channel will start the list at the last viewed page. This is the number of pages prior to that page to include so you can get a recap.
  • Show directories on top: Put the directories at the start of the list when file browsing. (Windows style)
  • Enable channel updater: default: enabled disable this if you don't want the channel to check for updates.
  • Read Indicator: default: blank string to add to the start of a file to indicate it is read.
  • Unread Indicator: default: * string to add to the start of a file to indicate it is unread.
  • In Progress Indicator: default: > string to add to the start of a file to indicate it is in progress.
  • Prevent client image caching: default: disabled In order to keep track of your position in a comic, the channel runs code when it serves a page to the client. If the client holds a cached copy it won't make a request to the server and we can't track what page you are on.
    Enable this option to get the client to download a new copy of the page every time it's viewed.
    If you don't have any issues with the resume features, you can leave this disabled to save bandwidth.
