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 nim -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 nim -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 nim
  win_chocolatey:
    name: nim
    version: '1.6.6'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

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


chocolatey_package 'nim' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '1.6.6'
end

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


cChocoPackageInstaller nim
{
    Name     = "nim"
    Version  = "1.6.6"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

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


package { 'nim':
  ensure   => '1.6.6',
  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.

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.
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
  • Virus scanning: High quantity of false positives is found due to unsigned binaries. See https://github.com/nim-lang/Nim/issues/17820.

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.

Please Note: This is an automatically updated package. If you find it is out of date by more than a day or two, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

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).
