(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 pathlengthchecker -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 pathlengthchecker -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

Description

Path Length Checker is a stand-alone app that allows you to specify a root directory, and it gives you back a list of all paths (i.e. files and directories) in that root directory and their lengths. It includes features such as pattern matching and min/max length constraints, as well as the ability to specify a string that should replace the root directory in the results brought back, allowing you to quickly see path lengths if you were to move the files/folders to another location.

Example


tools\chocolateyinstall.ps1
$ErrorActionPreference = 'Stop'

$toolsDir = "$(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"

# Remove old versions
$Previous = Get-ChildItem $env:ChocolateyPackageFolder -Filter v* | Where-Object { $_.PSIsContainer }
if ($Previous) {
   $Previous | ForEach-Object { Remove-Item $_.FullName -Recurse -Force }
}

$ZipFile = Get-ChildItem $toolsDir -filter "*.zip" |
               Sort-Object LastWriteTime | 
               Select-Object -ExpandProperty FullName -Last 1

$Destination = Join-Path $env:ChocolateyPackageFolder "v$env:ChocolateyPackageVersion"

Get-ChocolateyUnzip -FileFullPath $ZipFile -Destination $Destination

$targetPath = Get-ChildItem $Destination -filter "*GUI.exe" -Recurse
$null = New-Item "$($targetPath.FullName).gui" -Type file -Force

$Linkname = $targetPath.BaseName + '.lnk'
$StartPrograms = Join-Path $env:ProgramData '\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs'
$shortcutFilePath = Join-Path $StartPrograms $Linkname

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).
