GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable text editor—and more. At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing. Chocolatey package source:

To install Emacs, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install emacs

To upgrade Emacs, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade emacs


  • Show
    # EmacsChocolateyPackage
    ## Installation
    Use [Chocolatey]( to install this package:
    > cinst emacs
    ## Hacking
    Ah, yes, the real reason I made this readme. I can never remember how
    to deploy this.
      1. CD to the directory where you've checked out the source.
      2. Type `cpack`.
    To deploy, just go to the chocolatey website and upload the package.
    ### Even Better
    > cpack
    # get api key from
    # only need to this once
    > nuget setApiKey deadbeef-dead-beef-dead-deaddeadbeef -Source
    > cpush
    ## Versioning
    Apparently I need a unique version number to use the `cpush` command
    mentioned above, so from now on, the emacs chocolatey package will
    be versioned with first 3 segments from the emacs version, final
    segment as the date of the release, as described [here](
  • tools\#chocolateyInstall.ps1#
  • tools\chocolateyInstall.ps1 Show
    $emacsNameVersion = 'emacs-24.4'
    $src = "$($emacsNameVersion)"
    $toolsDir =  Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition
    Install-ChocolateyZipPackage 'Emacs' $src $toolsDir


This package has no dependencies.
