I was just away to say... I don't hink we have an explicit documentation page for it (we probably should have) but it should be covered in release notes
can someone approve the new jre8
also can someone tell me how to install an unapproved package?
@webdawg it's not recommended but you can install unapproved pkgs with name and version passed to choco. Be aware that the pkg could potentially change.
Or worse, could do something malicious. Not saying it would, but I'd have trust in only users I know if a pkg hasn't been moderated yet
@vktrchoco new will generate a template with choco specific ones - it may even say which are which
@erkko testing is done and we are in the process of setting up automated testing for all pkgs. that said, things change when pkgs have external download dependencies out of their control. This is done many times due to distribution rights and legalities.
@erkko choco doesn't have a way of knowing about already installed applications as compared to packages yet
If you have apps already installed @erkko And you want to make choco aware of them, you can use the switch for skipping the automated scripts - something like --skip-powershell - see choco install --help for more info
btw, could you set copyq among 'autotrusted'. It is already approved few times and I have provided code to the auto-update package (I don't use 'official' one tho, nevertheless, the result is what is important).
is choco going to support Ruby 2.2.2 installations soon? The current Ruby install is v2.1.6 Is there anyway to look at what packages are waiting mod approval?
added you to pandoc
@majkinetor ^^ - also maintainers don’t really make decisions on when things go trusted - we look for a few versions of a package with no issues prior to thinking about that
@priyavadan thanks for the reminder
@proudcanadianeh which JRE package should not be approved?
hey, there's a project 'tidy-html5' https://github.com/htacg/tidy-html5 the venerable 'tidy' program which builds under Windows and supports HTML5 - how hard would it be to get this into chocolatey?
@vielmetti Is there a downloadable exe, zip or msi of tidy-html5? Then it would be easy to build a chocolatey package.
thanks @StefanScherer@aronovgj I opened up an issue to track this htacg/tidy-html5#259
wait, on the site it says "experimental binaries" are there stable ones? anyway, if the devs decide to deliver stable binaries it won't complicate things. creating a chocolatey package can be easily integrated in the building process of the binaries.
@jakepetroules might wanna upload the icon to your github and use the production url from rawgit with the commit-url of the icon.
also icon is a little to big and unsymmetric. 256x256 is a good size
Hi all, can someone take a look at https://chocolatey.org/packages/pdf24/ -> the last approved version is from 2014 and the maintainer is updating the package since then (without approval yet)
hi all, is this the right place for puppet choco questions or can you point me at somewhere more appropriate?
@constructdian you can ask. I can handle both. We also have a puppet-chocolatey room that may be more appropriate
:bowtie: n00b here, 'scuse me, is there a way to create a package that installs unattended by scripting in a sequence of button presses?... I'm thinking like AutoHotKey scripts :scroll: or maybe with PowerShell?
yes - take a look at the github for windows package
@Cookie1990 what are you asking? The install is not working?
hey guys, im not on Win 10 atm, but does anyone know if they fixed the issue with OneGet and Chocolatey?
@pjmagee it's not yet fixed. It may be a little while
Okay no worries, thanks.
hi, are there any documents about the api of the package gallery? I try to write scripts that fetch packages to my local mirror, but at the moment I have a hard time to figure out how I can use the api in a efficient way.
@kkzinger you should look up nuget odata to learn how the api is set up
@ferventcoder thanks for the hint.
what exactly is the issue with oneget and chocolatey? any links?
The provider is not complete. The one that is there is from the original ctp. And the original devloper on oneget has moved on to other projects at MS. So once other things are complete with kickstarter needs, I could focus on it. Or if someone else is interested I could get them started
The room for choco oneget is chocolatey/chocolatey-oneget
@ferwentcoder, no it's not, im getting the same error what is posted in the comments
