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 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

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade gittfs -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 gittfs -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

git-tfs is a two-way bridge between a TFS server and a local git repository, similar to git-svn. It fetches TFS changesets into a git repository, and lets you push your updates back to TFS.

try {
  $sysDrive = $env:SystemDrive
  $gittfsPath = "$sysDrive\tools\gittfs"

  if(test-path $gittfsPath) {
    write-host "Cleaning out the contents of $gittfsPath"
    Remove-Item "$($gittfsPath)\*" -recurse -force
  Install-ChocolateyZipPackage 'gittfs' '' $gittfsPath
  Install-ChocolateyPath $gittfsPath

  write-host 'git-tfs has been installed. Call `git tfs` from the command line to see options. You may need to close and reopen the command shell.'
  Write-ChocolateySuccess 'gittfs'
} catch {
  Write-ChocolateyFailure 'gittfs' $($_.Exception.Message)

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.
