NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade zola -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade zola -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

This package was approved as a trusted package on 26 May 2020.


A fast static site generator in a single binary with everything built-in. Documentation is available on its site or
in the docs/content folder of the repository.

Supported content formats

  • Zola: markdown
  • Cobalt: markdown
  • Hugo: markdown, asciidoc, org-mode
  • Pelican: reStructuredText, markdown, asciidoc, org-mode, whatever-you-want

Template engine explanation

Cobalt gets ~ as, while based on Liquid, the Rust library doesn't implement all its features but there is no documentation on what is and isn't implemented. The errors are also cryptic. Liquid itself is not powerful enough to do some of things you can do in Jinja2, Go templates or Tera.

Hugo gets ~. It is probably the most powerful template engine in the list after Jinja2 (hard to beat python code in templates) but personally drives me insane, to the point of writing my own template engine and static site generator. Yes, this is a bit biased.

Pelican notes

Many features of Pelican are coming from plugins, which might be tricky
to use because of version mismatch or lacking documentation. Netlify supports Python
and Pipenv but you still need to install your dependencies manually.


As the documentation site is automatically built on commits to master, all development
should happen on the next branch, unless it is fixing the current documentation.

If you want a feature added or modified, please open an issue to discuss it before doing a PR.

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.

0.11.0 (2020-05-25)


  • RSS feed support has been altered to allow, and default to, Atom feeds, Atom being technically superior and just as widely-supported in normal use cases.

    • New config value feed_filename, defaulting to atom.xml (change to rss.xml to reinstate the old behaviour)
    • Config value rss_limit is renamed to feed_limit
    • Config value languages.*.rss is renamed to languages.*.feed
    • Config value generate_rss is renamed to generate_feed

    Users with existing feeds should either set feed_filename = "rss.xml" in config.toml to keep things the same, or set up a 3xx redirect from rss.xml to atom.xml so that existing feed consumers aren’t broken.

  • The feed template variable last_build_date is renamed to last_updated to more accurately reflect its semantics

  • The sitemap template’s SitemapEntry type’s date field has been renamed to updated to reflect that it will use the updated front-matter field if available, rather than date

0.10.1 (2020-03-12)

  • Set user agent for HTTP requests
  • Add nyx-bold highlight theme
  • Add lyric and subtitles highlighting

  • Remove toc variable in section/page context and pass it to page.toc and section.toc instead so they are
    accessible everywhere
  • Slugification of paths, taxonomies and anchors is now configurable. By default, everything will still be slugified like in previous versions.
    See documentation for information on how to disable it.


  • Add zenburn syntax highlighting theme
  • Fix zola init .
  • Add total_pages to paginator
  • Do not prepend URL prefix to links that start with a scheme
