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 zola -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 zola -y --source="'STEP 3 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 02 Sep 2021.


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).

0.14.0 (2021-07-19)


  • Newlines are now required after the closing +++ of front-matter
  • resize_image now returns an object: {url, static_path} instead of just the URL so you can follow up with other functions on the new file if needed
  • get_file_hash now has the base64 option set to true by default (from false) since it's mainly used for integrity hashes which are base64
  • i18n rework: languages now have their sections in config.toml to set up all their options
    1. taxonomies don't have a lang anymore in the config, you need to declare them in their respective language section
    2. the config variable in templates has been changed and is now a stripped down language aware version of the previous config
    3. Search settings are now language specific
    4. Translations are now nested in the languages table
  • Paths unification:
    1. get_url does not load automatically from the static folder anymore
    2. New path resolving logic for all on-disk files: replace @/ by content/, trim leading / and
      search in $BASE_DIR + $path, $BASE_DIR + static + $path and $BASE_DIR + content + $path
    3. get_file_hash now returns base64 encoded hash by default
    4. all functions working on files can now only load files in the Zola directory
    5. resize_image return value has changed
    6. page.assets now start with a / to match section.assets and other paths

  • Add the base16-aterlierdune-light syntax highlight theme
  • Improve link checking: less concurrency and try to not overload the servers
  • Allow using POST for load_data, along with a body to POST and allow it to fail
  • Add Zig and Protobuf syntax highlighting
  • Footnotes links are now stripped from summaries - they were not linking to anything.
  • get_url and get_taxonomy_url are now marked as safe, no need to call | safe on their output
  • Add allow_missing optional argument to get_image_metadata to not error if the file is not found
  • Add permalink to Taxonomy in templates
