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 rocolatey -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 rocolatey -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

R(ocket-fast) Chocolatey queries.

  • mimics output of Chocolatey commands (drop-in replacement)
  • doesn't make use of Chocolatey or chocolatey.dll - just looks at the filesystem / does native ODATA calls.
  • can be used to query Chocolatey status while choco.exe is running.
  • it's supposed to be much faster for each command that has a Chocolatey counterpart.

What can roco do for me?

Take a look at the help (roco -h), basically roco allows you to list installed packages, list failed package installs, configured sources and check for updates. In addition to that, there may be some hidden gems that are only available in roco, but not in vanilla Chocolatey.

choco command roco command
choco source list roco source
choco list -lo roco list
choco outdated roco outdated
- roco bad
- ... :wink:

Normally you should not run multiple Chocolatey instances at the same time, however this may be required in certain scenarios. If you wanted to check if updates are available, or simply list all configured sources, roco is there to help you out without worrying of breaking something because you accidentally called choco in parallel.

How much faster is roco.exe compared to choco.exe?

It very much depends on the number of installed packages and configured feeds, generally speaking roco should always be much faster than choco, the difference becomes bigger when dealing with many packages and feeds.
