Chocolatey — kind of like
apt-get, but for Windows
“I’m a tools enabler, I’m a global silent application installer, I configure stuff. Some people want to call me
apt-get for Windows, but I just want to get Chocolatey!”
Chocolatey is like
apt-get, but built with Windows in mind. For those unfamiliar with
apt-get, think about Chocolatey as a global silent installer for applications and tools. It can also do configuration tasks and anything that you can do with PowerShell. The power you hold with a tool like Chocolatey is only limited by your imagination!
You can develop your tools and applications with NuGet, and release them with Chocolatey. But Chocolatey is not just for .NET tools, it’s for nearly any Windows application!
To install Chocolatey, open a command prompt and paste the text from the box below and press
@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))" && SET PATH=%PATH%;%systemdrive%\chocolatey\bin
