Optimize Command (choco optimize)

Package Optimizer

Chocolatey Licensed editions starting at Chocolatey Licensed Extension v1.12.0.

Similar to Package Reducer, but reduces for existing packages.
With Package Optimizer/Reducer:

  • nupkg file is reduced to 5KB or less, no matter the size.
  • zips / installers are automatically removed from the package directory if they are found.
  • zips / installers are removed from TEMP cache if found.

The following file extensions are removed automatically:

  • 7z / zip / rar / gz / tar / sfx
  • iso
  • msi / msu / msp
  • exe files if they are detected to be an installer

Usage

choco optimize [<options/switches>]

Examples

choco optimize
choco optimize --reduce-nupkg-only

Options and Switches

NOTE: Options and switches apply to all items passed, so if you are
running a command like install that allows installing multiple
packages, and you use --version=1.0.0, it is going to look for and
try to install version 1.0.0 of every package passed. So please split
out multiple package calls when wanting to pass specific options.

Includes default options/switches (included below for completeness).


 downloading multiple packages, and you use `--version=1.0.0`, it is
 going to look for and try to download version 1.0.0 of every package
