NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

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 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. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade nim -y --source="'STEP 3 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 nim -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula.

Efficient

  • Nim generates native dependency-free executables, not dependent on a virtual machine, which are small and allow easy redistribution.
  • The Nim compiler and the generated executables support all major platforms like Windows, Linux, BSD and macOS.
  • Nim's memory management is deterministic and customizable with destructors and move semantics, inspired by C++ and Rust. It is well-suited for embedded, hard-realtime systems.
  • Modern concepts like zero-overhead iterators and compile-time evaluation of user-defined functions, in combination with the preference of value-based datatypes allocated on the stack, lead to extremely performant code.
  • Support for various backends: it compiles to C, C++ or JavaScript so that Nim can be used for all backend and frontend needs.

Expressive

  • Nim is self-contained: the compiler and the standard library are implemented in Nim.
  • Nim has a powerful macro system which allows direct manipulation of the AST, offering nearly unlimited opportunities.

Elegant

  • Macros cannot change Nim's syntax because there is no need for it — the syntax is flexible enough.
  • Modern type system with local type inference, tuples, generics and sum types.
  • Statements are grouped by indentation but can span multiple lines.

Notes

  • By default this package install's Nim along with MingW compiler and added to PATH.
  • You can disable by passing a parameter. See here

Package Specific

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /AddToPath: - Add the binaries to PATH. Allowed values are either true or false. By default true.

To pass parameters, use --params "''" (e.g. choco install nim [other options] --params="'/AddToPath:false'").

To have choco remember parameters on upgrade, be sure to set choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades.
