(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 yarn -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.17.8'" [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 yarn -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.17.8'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

Yarn is a package manager for the npm and bower registries with a few specific

Determinism: Based around a version lockfile which ensures that operations on
the dependency graph can be easily transitioned. We check module directories
and verify their integrity to ensure Yarn install always produces the same file

Security: Strict guarantees are placed around package installation. You have
control over whether lifecycle scripts are executed for packages and package
hashes are stored in the lockfile to ensure you get the same package each time.

Performance: We're always performing operations such as package resolving and
fetching in parallel. This ensures little idle time and maximum resource

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.
