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

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

Exit $exitCode

This package was approved as a trusted package on 12 Sep 2022.


A fast static site generator in a single binary with everything built-in. Documentation is available on its site or
in the docs/content folder of the repository.

Supported content formats

  • Zola: markdown
  • Cobalt: markdown
  • Hugo: markdown, asciidoc, org-mode
  • Pelican: reStructuredText, markdown, asciidoc, org-mode, whatever-you-want

Template engine explanation

Cobalt gets ~ as, while based on Liquid, the Rust library doesn't implement all its features but there is no documentation on what is and isn't implemented. The errors are also cryptic. Liquid itself is not powerful enough to do some of things you can do in Jinja2, Go templates or Tera.

Hugo gets ~. It is probably the most powerful template engine in the list after Jinja2 (hard to beat python code in templates) but personally drives me insane, to the point of writing my own template engine and static site generator. Yes, this is a bit biased.

Pelican notes

Many features of Pelican are coming from plugins, which might be tricky
to use because of version mismatch or lacking documentation. Netlify supports Python
and Pipenv but you still need to install your dependencies manually.


As the documentation site is automatically built on commits to master, all development
should happen on the next branch, unless it is fixing the current documentation.

If you want a feature added or modified, please open an issue to discuss it before doing a PR.

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).

0.16.0 (2022-07-16)


  • Switch to pulldown-cmark anchor system rather than ours, some (very niche) edge cases are not supported anymore, you can
    also specify classes on headers now
  • Now outputs empty taxonomies instead of ignoring them
  • Unify all pages sorting variable names in templates to lower/higher in order to make it easy to re-use templates and it
    was becoming hard to come up with names to be honest

  • Make ignored_content work with nested paths and directories
  • zola serve/build can now run from anywhere in a zola directory
  • Add XML support to load_data

  • skip_prefixes is now checked before parsing external link URLs
  • Add render attribute to taxonomies configuration in config.toml, for when you don't want to render
    any pages related to that taxonomy
  • Serialize transparent field from front-matter of sections
  • Use Zola Tera instance for markdown filter: this means you have access to the same Tera functions as in shortcodes
  • Ignore sections with render=false when looking for path collisions
  • Add support for backlinks
  • Add a warning mode for internal/external link checking in case you don't want zola to stop the build on invalid links
  • Always follow symlinks when loading the site/assets
  • Add rel="alternate" to Atom post links
  • Fix taxonomy current_path
  • Fix feed location for taxonomies not in the default language
  • Add title_bytes sorting method
