Screenshot of Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension

It's HERE! The 100% Chocolatey user OPT-IN toast notification extension for Chocolatey and Windows 10 (only).

Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension is a Chocolatey extension that displays a toast notification after installing or uninstalling a program. This extension will start working automatically once installed and does NOT need to be implemented by package creators/maintainers. Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension is meant to be installed and used directly by Chocolatey end users.

PURPOSE:

  • Chocogeeky fun!

FEATURES:

  • Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension will display a toast notification with the package name, program name, program version, status message (installed or uninstalled), and a link to the package page on the chocolatey.org website after a program is installed or uninstalled.

WHAT IT WON'T DO:

  • Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension will NOT work on anything other than Windows 10, this is a limitation of the BurntToast PowerShell module and its use of the UWP Community Toolkit. (Yes, I tried it on Windows Server 2016 and it did NOT work.)
  • Chocolatey Toast Notifications Extension will NOT display messages for programs that don't use standard installers, i.e. portable programs.
