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 unison -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 unison -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 unison
  win_chocolatey:
    name: unison
    version: '2.53.5'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

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


chocolatey_package 'unison' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '2.53.5'
end

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


cChocoPackageInstaller unison
{
    Name     = "unison"
    Version  = "2.53.5"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

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


package { 'unison':
  ensure   => '2.53.5',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',
}

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.

Description

Unison

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for OSX, Unix, and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection
of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified
separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other.

Unison shares a number of features with tools such as configuration management packages (CVS, PRCS,
Subversion, BitKeeper, etc.), distributed filesystems (Coda, etc.), uni-directional mirroring utilities
(rsync, etc.), and other synchronizers (Intellisync, Reconcile, etc). However, there are several points
where it differs:

  • Unison runs on both Windows and many flavors of Unix (Solaris, Linux, OS X, etc.) systems. Moreover,
    Unison works across platforms, allowing you to synchronize a Windows laptop with a Unix server, for example.
  • Unlike simple mirroring or backup utilities, Unison can deal with updates to both replicas of a
    distributed directory structure. Updates that do not conflict are propagated automatically. Conflicting updates are detected and displayed.
  • Unlike a distributed filesystem, Unison is a user-level program: there is no need to modify the kernel
    or to have superuser privileges on either host.
  • Unison works between any pair of machines connected to the internet, communicating over either a
    direct socket link or tunneling over an encrypted ssh connection. It is careful with network
    bandwidth, and runs well over slow links such as PPP connections. Transfers of small updates to large
    files are optimized using a compression protocol similar to rsync.
  • Unison is resilient to failure. It is careful to leave the replicas and its own private structures in
    a sensible state at all times, even in case of abnormal termination or communication failures.
  • Unison has a clear and precise specification.
  • Unison is free; full source code is available under the GNU Public License.

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.
