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 neovim -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.6.0-beta'" --prerelease [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 neovim -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.6.0-beta'" --prerelease
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

More powerful plugins

  • The msgpack API enables structured communication to and from any programming language.
  • Remote plugins run as co-processes that communicate with Neovim safely and asynchronously.

Better out-of-the-box

  • Strong defaults
  • Modern terminal features such as truecolor and bracketed paste
  • Built-in terminal emulator
  • First-class embedding
  • GUIs (or TUIs—such as readline) can nvim --embed or communicate via TCP socket using the discoverable msgpack API.

Drop-in replacement for Vim

  • Neovim is an extension of Vim: feature-parity and backwards compatibility are high priorities.
  • If you are already familiar with Vim, see :help nvim-from-vim to learn about the differences.

Following HEAD

  • If you want to stay up to date with the latest development you can install neovim using the --pre option.
  • For example: choco install neovim --pre.
  • Which will get you the latest nightly builds for windows.

Package Parameters

  • /NoNeovimOnPath: Neovim binary folder will not be added to the path.

  • Optional parameter.

  • Default behavior is that Neovim binary will be added to the path.

  • If this is used together with /NeovimOnPathForAll, this takes precedence and the path will not be modified.

  • Example: choco install neovim --params "/NoNeovimOnPath"

  • /NeovimOnPathForAll: Neovim binary folder will be added to the machine path.

  • Optional parameter.

  • Default behavior is that Neovim binary will be added only to the users path.

  • Example: choco install neovim --params "/NeovimOnPathForAll"

Note: To force the installation of x32 version, use the --x86 argument with choco install.

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.
