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 sparkleshare -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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

SparkleShare is an Open Source collaboration and sharing tool that is designed to keep things simple and to stay out of your way.
It allows you to instantly sync with Git repositories and is available for Linux distributions, Mac and Windows.

How does it work?

SparkleShare creates a special folder on your computer.
You can add remotely hosted folders (or "projects") to this folder.
These projects will be automatically kept in sync with both the host and all of your peers when someone adds, removes or edits a file.

What's it good for?

SparkleShare was made to cover certain use cases, but doesn't handle every scenario well.
To help you decide if SparkleShare is right for you, here's a few examples of what it does well and less well:


  • Frequently changing project files, like text, office documents, and images
  • Tracking and syncing files edited by multiple people
  • Reverting a file to any points in its history
  • Preventing spying on your files on the server using encryption

Not so great

  • Full computer backups
  • Storing your photos or music collection
  • Large binary files that change often, like video editing projects

For more information on usecases, see the docs.


  • File synchronization
  • Version control
  • Self hosted
  • Client side encryption
  • Free and Open Source

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).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
