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://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://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade alacritty.portable -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 alacritty.portable -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

See infrastructure management matrix for Chocolatey configuration elements and examples.

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

About

Alacritty is a terminal emulator with a strong focus on simplicity and
performance. With such a strong focus on performance, included features are
carefully considered and you can always expect Alacritty to be blazingly fast.
By making sane choices for defaults, Alacritty requires no additional setup.
However, it does allow configuration of many aspects of the
terminal.

The software is considered to be at a beta level of readiness -- there are
a few missing features and bugs to be fixed, but it is already used by many as
a daily driver.

Further information

On Windows, Alacritty also requires Microsoft's VC++ redistributable.

For Windows versions older than Windows 10 (October 2018 Update), Alacritty
requires winpty to emulate UNIX's PTY API. The agent is a single binary
(winpty-agent.exe) which must be in the same directory as the Alacritty
executable.

Configuration

You can find the default configuration file with documentation for all available
fields on the GitHub releases page for each release.

Alacritty looks for the configuration file at the following paths:

  1. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/alacritty/alacritty.yml
  2. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/alacritty.yml
  3. $HOME/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml
  4. $HOME/.alacritty.yml

Windows

On Windows the config file is located at:

%APPDATA%\alacritty\alacritty.yml

Contributing

A full guideline about contributing to Alacritty can be found in the
CONTRIBUTING.md file.

Issues (known, unknown, feature requests, etc.)

If you run into a problem with Alacritty, please file an issue. If you've got a
feature request, feel free to ask about it. Please just keep in mind Alacritty
is focused on simplicity and performance, and not all features are in line with
that goal.

Before opening a new issue, please check if it has already been reported.
There's a chance someone else has already reported it, and you can subscribe to
that issue to keep up on the latest developments.

FAQ

Is it really the fastest terminal emulator?

In the terminals we've benchmarked,
Alacritty is either faster or way faster than the others. If you've found a
case where this isn't true, please report a bug.

Why isn't feature X implemented?

Alacritty has many great features, but not every feature from every other
terminal. This could be for a number of reasons, but sometimes it's just not a
good fit for Alacritty. This means you won't find things like tabs or splits
(which are best left to a window manager or terminal multiplexer) nor
niceties like a GUI config editor.

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).
