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 ghc -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 ghc -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

- name: Install ghc
  win_chocolatey:
    name: ghc
    version: '9.8.2'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'ghc' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '9.8.2'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller ghc
{
    Name     = "ghc"
    Version  = "9.8.2"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.


package { 'ghc':
  ensure   => '9.8.2',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',
}

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.


4. If applicable - Chocolatey configuration/installation

See infrastructure management matrix for Chocolatey configuration elements and examples.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 13 Jun 2024.

Description

Highlights:
• GHC supports the entire Haskell 2010 language plus a wide variety of extensions.
• GHC has particularly good support for concurrency and parallelism, including support for Software Transactional Memory (STM).
• GHC generates fast code, particularly for concurrent programs. Take a look at GHC's performance on The Computer Language Benchmarks Game.
• GHC works on several platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux, most varieties of Unix, and several different processor architectures. There are detailed instructions for porting GHC to a new platform.
• GHC has extensive optimisation capabilities, including inter-module optimisation.
• GHC compiles Haskell code either directly to native code or using LLVM as a back-end. GHC can also generate C code as an intermediate target for porting to new platforms. The interactive environment compiles Haskell to bytecode, and supports execution of mixed bytecode/compiled programs.
• Profiling is supported, both by time/allocation and various kinds of heap profiling.
• GHC comes with several libraries, and thousands more are available on Hackage.

There's an important change to path handling for Windows starting with 8.6.1.
These changes mean that Haskell programs are no longer constraint to MAX_PATH. So passing a long path to openFile will just work.
There are a few caveats to this such as you can't access COM devices via COM1 etc anymore and instead need to use the full path \\.\COM1 etc.
This is all documented https://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/8.8.4/docs/html/users_guide/win32-dlls.html#windows-file-paths

32-bit Windows is no longer supported and installing this package on 32-bit Windows will install GHC 8.6.5.

GHC 9.0 contains a new I/O manager for Windows as a technical preview. See changelog for more information.

Package Specific

changes

  • Adds support for Azure Pipelines.

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /installdir: - The location to install package to. Note that installing to a directory with spaces will likely lead to difficulties.
  • /globalinstall: - Indicates whether package should be installed for current user or all users.
  • /integer-simple: - Indicates to use the GHC bignum package instead of the GMP one, for compatibility reasons the flag is kept the same.
  • /no-workarounds: - Don't apply any package specific workarounds that may be needed to make the compiler work.

To pass parameters, use --params "''" (e.g. choco install packageID [other options] --params="'/ITEM:value /ITEM2:value2 /FLAG_BOOLEAN'").
To have choco remember parameters on upgrade, be sure to set choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades.

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.
