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 kindlepreviewer -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 kindlepreviewer -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

Description

Kindle Previewer is a graphical user interface tool that emulates how books display across Kindle devices and apps. Kindle Previewer makes it easy for publishers to preview the layout of a book and make sure its text displays properly for any orientation or font size to ensure publishers produce and submit the highest quality Kindle books.

As a best practice we recommend you use the Kindle Previewer to review how their books look across all Kindle devices and apps.

  • Preview and validate books faster with Kindle Previewer
  • Preview key aspects of your book such as images, tables, drop caps and links
  • Preview how your book will look on different screen sizes, font sizes and orientations

Features

• Get a bird’s-eye view of your Enhanced Typesetting enabled book to validate the overall layout faster.
• Easy navigation options to review images, lists, tables and dropcaps without having to go through the entire book.
• Ability to run Kindle Previewer from the command-line interface to validate multiple books.
• Regular updates with access to latest Kindle layout and typographic features that come with Enhanced Typesetting.
• Reflects the layout of the book as delivered to Kindle customers with the latest Enhanced Typesetting features.
• Simplified installer for Mac and Windows that does not require you to manually download additional software.
• Full-page previews without having to scroll.
• Ability to change the fonts during preview.
• Separate navigation pane for quicker page navigation.
• Faster text search, page navigation, and book re-open.

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.
