From :

"Idris is a general purpose pure functional programming language with dependent types. Dependent types allow types to be predicated on values, meaning that some aspects of a program's behaviour can be specified precisely in the type. It is compiled, with eager evaluation. Its features are influenced by Haskell and ML, ..."

You can find the full feature list and comprehensive documentation at the link above and the Idris-dev Github wiki.

Chocolatey Idris is not affiliated with the Idris project and does not include a copy of Idris. It just automatically downloads and installs the Idris Windows binary distribution.


Chocolatey Idris automatically installs either the 32bit or 64bit Idris distribution.

The Idris archive will be extracted to the Chocolatey package's tools\ sub-directory (usually C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\idris\tools\), and Chocolatey will create shims for idris.exe and all idris-codegen-*.exe files, so that they are available in %PATH%.

On updating or uninstalling, the (old) Idris distribution will be deleted together with the (old) Chocolatey package files.

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

C:\> choco install idris

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

C:\> choco upgrade idris

Virus Scan Results

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.


This package has no dependencies.
