nushell has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
Congratulations! This package passed automatic validation review without flagging on any issues the validator currently checks. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

nushell has failed automated package testing (verification).
Please visit for details.
The package status will be changed and will be waiting on your next actions.

  • NEW! We have a test environment for you to replicate the testing we do. This can be used at any time to test packages! See
  • Please log in and leave a review comment if you have questions and/or comments.
  • If you see the verifier needs to rerun testing against the package without resubmitting (a issue in the test results), you can do that on the package page in the review section.
  • If the verifier is incompatible with the package, please log in and leave a review comment if the package needs to bypass testing (e.g. package installs specific drivers).
  • Automated testing can also fail when a package is not completely silent or has pop ups (AutoHotKey can assist - a great example is the VeraCrypt package).
  • A package that cannot be made completely unattended should have the notSilent tag. Note that this must be approved by moderators.

We've found nushell v0.38.0 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move nushell v0.38.0 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.


Nushell, or Nu for short, is a new shell that takes a modern, structured approach to your commandline. It works
seamlessly with the data from your filesystem, operating system, and a growing number of file formats to make it easy
to build powerful commandline pipelines.


  • Control your system with powerful pipelines Pipelines let you command your system like never before. Your system
    belongs to you, and it awaits your command
  • Everything is data Rather than having the need to remember all the parameters to all the commands, we can just use
    the same, regardless of where it came from
  • Powerful Plugins Nu can't come with everything you might want to do with it, so you can extend using its powerful
    plugin system


Package Parameters

The following package parameter can be set:

  • /AddToDesktop - add a desktop shortcuts for Nu Shell. By default the shortcuts will be added for all users
    e.g. choco install nushell.install --package-parameters="/AddToDesktop"
  • /AddToStartMenu - add entries to the Start Menu for Koodoo Reader. By default the shortcut will be added for all
    e.g. choco install nushell.install --package-parameters="/AddToStartMenu"
  • /User - where the user parameter is specified any shortcuts created (using /AddToDesktop or /AddToStartMenu)
    will only be added for the current user
    e.g. choco install nushell.install --package-parameters="/AddToDesktop /User"

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