Nothing like a lot of time away to realize how terrible built something is >_<. Goodness this app needs a lot of love.
@ferventcoder At some point I'd like to possible think about having a slightly more official way to channel console output from chocolatey than intercepting the ILog. Food for thoughts.
It works, but it's hacky. And it doesn't allow me to represent things like powershell's native progress notifications.
@gep13 Gonna be a bit of churn. As part of cleaning up chocolatey I'm going to rip out a lot of hacky and deprecated stuff and put in play some more modern alternatives. Prime examples being my custom view model base, our logging abstraction, and the bizzare way I implemented progress and notifications, as well as chocolatey commands.

And yes - ILog wasn't really meant as a communication channel - more as a notification stream

Looking good! I can't tell for sure from the image, but is that using the color scheme from the website? Especially the deep blue color. 😀

It's influenced a lot by the site. I deviated in a few ways just cuz certain things didn't fit
Probably going to refine and make a bit more pretty moving forward, but I'm going to focus on smoothing out some rough edged in installing/uninstalling/updating first

@ferventcoder I guess there is one last item on my wish list. A way to get ChocolateyPackageInformation and/or Isinstalled from ListCommand
That would wrap up a few issues and allow me to propely support pinned and sxs packages (which aren't supported at ll in the UI)
RichiCoder1 @RichiCoder1 must have all the info
