Habitat centers application configuration, management, and behavior around the application itself, not the infrastructure that the app runs on.

Habitat provides automation that can programmatically and declaratively build, deploy, and manage your application and services, both stateful and stateless.

Habitat can be deployed and run on various infrastructure environments including bare metal, VM, containers, and PaaS.

To install habitat, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install habitat

To upgrade habitat, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

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.
