Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • 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 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

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade justread-chrome -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

Screenshot of Just Read for Chrome

A customizable reader extension.

With one click (or less!), you can remove distractions like:

  • The page's styling
  • Ads
  • Popups
  • Comments

And read the article in a customizable, simplified format - like a read mode but better! No login and completely free!

Users can:

  • Use the default theme
  • Modify the default theme using a graphical editor or CSS
  • Use a theme someone else has made (found at )
  • Use their very own custom styling
  • Auto-run Just Read format on specific sites
  • Auto-enable fullscreen when Just Read is started
  • Use a keyboard shortcut to run Just Read
  • Print the custom-styled version of the article
  • Use the selection mode to choose exactly which text they want to select for reading
  • Use the deletion mode to remove any unwanted content after selection
  • Edit incorrect meta information generated
  • Control which options Just Read uses

Just Read is a feature-packed and more customizable alternative to the now-defunct Clearly extension, working like a specialized reader view, and includes support for special needs like MathJax and right to left languages.

Just Read collects no data from any user, so you have nothing to worry about in terms of privacy.

Just Read is completely open source and can be found on GitHub here

Please read the README in the GitHub link above for more details about Just Read!

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.
