Brew and Chocolate(y)

2018-02-07

In the past years, I’ve always used a Mac for doing daily business at my customers. But at my newest customers workplace, they only accept that you work on one of their provided Win7 machines. That IS a perfect example of regression!

I love

Homebrew

Homebrew Cask

to install all the things on my Mac. So when I had to start working on Windows, I immediately looked for a similar packet manager. I ended up with this:

Chocolatey

And here some first useful commands:
choco list –local-only (lists all locally installed packages)
cup all (will update all locally installed packages)
choco install ChocolateyGUI (will install the Chocolatey GUI)

Find the full list of possible commands here!

Awesome tooling stuff which is quite handy! Have fun with it!
