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 beyondcompare -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 beyondcompare -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

Description

This is the code I use to publish the BeyondCompare package to Chocolatey.

It's actually really easy.

  1. Follow the instructions on chocolatey.org to setup Chocolatey
  2. Clone this repository and navigate to the folder in Powershell
  3. Build.ps1 to create the package
  4. cinst beyondcompare -Source "full-directory-path" to install it locally

And you're done!

BeyondCompare has been updated! Help!

When a new release of BeyondCompare is out in the wild, updating this package is easy:

  1. Fork this repository to your local environment
  2. Run the .\Update-Version.ps1 to update the package artifacts
  3. Commit the changes to a branch and push it to your fork
  4. Submit a pull request

After I merge the pull request, I'll publish a new release to Chocolatey so they can review it.

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).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
