This package was approved as a trusted package on 6/2/2019.

Yeoman is a generic scaffolding system allowing the creation of any kind of app.
It allows for rapidly getting started on new projects and streamlines the maintenance of existing projects.

Yeoman is language agnostic.
It can generate projects in any language (Web, Java, Python, C#, etc.)

Yeoman by itself doesn't make any decisions.
Every decision is made by generators which are basically plugins in the Yeoman environment.
There's a lot of publicly available generators and its easy to create a new one to match any workflow.
Yeoman is always the right choice for your scaffolding needs.

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

C:\> choco install yo --version 2.0.6

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

C:\> choco upgrade yo --version 2.0.6

  • tools\chocolateyUninstall.ps1 Show
    npm uninstall -g yo

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.
