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 chars -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 chars -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

VERIFICATION.txt
VERIFICATION
Verification is intended to assist the Chocolatey moderators and community
in verifying that this package's contents are trustworthy.

---

Since the chars author does not publish binaries, this Chocolatey package is built to have reproducible builds.

LICENSE.txt is taken directly from <https://github.com/antifuchs/chars/blob/v0.4.1/LICENSE>.
It had sha256 B8877D54A3D562F22B4EF3185FEAA1472545C3FEE5855AB1ACE066FC1752F074 when pulled.

To reproduce the chars.exe executable, install the MSVC Build Tools, the MSVC Rust compiler,
and the [ducible](https://github.com/jasonwhite/ducible) CLI tool.
chars.exe had sha256 DDDF9D05D979647AC83FB10C757042E505B4193E55DF1E74BA388F58C0D6186C after built.

The MSVC build tools, and the Rust compiler, can both be installed directly using Chocolatey:

    PS> choco install rust-ms --version 1.40.0
    PS> choco install visualcppbuildtools --version 14.0.25420.1

Ducible is not currently available as a Chocolatey package. I downloaded it from <https://github.com/jasonwhite/ducible/releases>.

    PS> Invoke-WebRequest https://github.com/jasonwhite/ducible/releases/download/v1.2.2/ducible-windows-x64-Release.zip -OutFile ducible.zip
    PS> $shell = New-Object -Com shell.application
    PS> $zip = $shell.NameSpace("$PWD\ducible.zip")
    PS> foreach ($item in $zip.items()) { $shell.NameSpace("C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\").CopyHere($item) }

Then, after installing the toolchain, download the correct git tag version for this system, build it in release mode, and run ducible on it:

    PS> git clone --branch=v0.4.1 https://github.com/antifuchs/chars
    PS> cd chars
    PS> cargo build --release
    PS> ducible target\release\chars.exe
    PS> cp target\release\chars.exe ..
    PS> cp LICENSE ..\LICENSE.txt

You can now verify that your hashes match mine using PowerShell's Get-FileHash applet.

    PS> $LicenseSha256 = (Get-FileHash -Path ..\LICENSE.txt -Algorithm sha256).Hash
    PS> $LicenseSha256 -Eq "B8877D54A3D562F22B4EF3185FEAA1472545C3FEE5855AB1ACE066FC1752F074"
    True
    PS> $ExeSha256 = (Get-FileHash -Path ..\chars.exe -Algorithm sha256).Hash
    PS> $ExeSha256 -Eq "DDDF9D05D979647AC83FB10C757042E505B4193E55DF1E74BA388F58C0D6186C"
    True

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).
