About Chocolatey

Chocolatey is designed to help businesses automate installation, upgradation, and configuration of software on Windows server. The application allows IT teams to create software packages using installers, ZIP files, or scripts and manage version control, installation order, and inventories via a unified platform.

Chocolatey allows organizations to automate the entire software lifecycle using universal packaging format and configure workflows. Software developers can use the application to create a private repository of packages, gain real-time insights into software deployments, conduct audits, and generate status reports. It offers a variety of features, such as data synchronization, permission management, analytics, productivity tracking, security management, access control, and data import.

Chocolatey facilitates integration with various third-party applications, such as Puppet, Chef, Ansible, JFrog Artifactory, Sonatype Nexus, Jenkins, TeamCity, and more via REST APIs. It also lets managers track versions of ZIP archive files and remote users, maintain security policies, and manage software upgrades using sync command functionality.

Chocolatey package manager for Windows

Reviewed on 2020/10/20

What a sanity-saver!

What a sanity-saver!


The ease of managing packages installed through the Chocolatey base is fantastic, from fresh installs to maintaining updates.
Just one program to install on a new installation can take care of the majority of needed programs that require system integration, if one supplements with a suite of portable apps alongside.


It can take a while to propagate the list of available applications to choose for installation, including on each search.
