Welcome to the Chocolatey Community Package Repository! The packages found in this section of the site are provided, maintained, and moderated by the community.
Every version of each package undergoes a rigorous moderation process before it goes live that typically includes:
- Security, consistency, and quality checking
- Installation testing
- Virus checking through VirusTotal
- Human moderators who give final review and sign off
If you are an organization using Chocolatey, we want your experience to be fully reliable. Due to the nature of this publicly offered repository, reliability cannot be guaranteed. Packages offered here are subject to distribution rights, which means they may need to reach out further to the internet to the official locations to download files at runtime.
Fortunately, distribution rights do not apply for internal use. With any edition of Chocolatey (including the free open source edition), you can host your own packages and cache or internalize existing community packages.
Your use of the packages on this site means you understand they are not supported or guaranteed in any way. Learn more...

To edit the metadata for a package, please upload an updated version of the package.
Chocolatey's Community Package Repository currently does not allow updating package metadata on the website. This helps ensure that the package itself (and the source used to build the package) remains the one true source of package metadata.
This does require that you increment the package version.

Minisign is a dead simple tool to sign files and verify signatures.
It is portable, lightweight, and uses the highly secure Ed25519 public-key signature system.

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.

- Multiple files can now be signed at once.
- Support for HaikuOS was added.
- The default location of the secret key was changed to ~/.minisign/minisign.key.
- Generating a new set of keys (-G) doesn't replace an existing key pair any more; the additional -f switch is required in order to force this operation.
- Improved error messages and Windows compatibility.
- A man page was added.
- Support for pre-hashing (HashEdDSA) was added.
- The -H command-line switch, in addition to -S, enables HashEdDSA signatures instead of the default, pure EdDSA signatures.
- Require very little memory to be generated and verified, even with huge files
- Are faster to generate and verify than pure EdDSA signatures
- Require Minisign >= 0.6. In particular, they are not compatible with OpenBSD signify tool.
- Would not remain secure against (improbable) collisions in the Blake2b-512 hash function.
PureEdDSA signatures (default):
- Require as much memory as the size of the file to sign
- Cannot be used with files whose size is over 1 Gb
- Are compatible with all Minisign versions, as well as OpenBSD signify.
- Would remain secure against (improbable) collisions in the Blake2b-512 hash function.
- The return code is now 1 on verification/password error, and 2 for system errors.
- Bug fix: -p and -V could not be used together. It has been fixed.
- New option: -o, that can be combined with -V in order to send the content of the signed file to stdout after successful verification.
- New switch: -Q, to display only the trusted comment (after verification)
