Create your own packages

Create your own packages

Out of the box, Chocolatey comes with the ability for you to create your own Chocolatey packages. At the heart of any Chocolatey package is PowerShell (the automation language for Windows), so anything that you can imagine can go into a Chocolatey Package. This means that you can create a package for:

  • Installers
  • Binaries
  • Zips
  • Scripts
  • Anything

We have comprehensive documentation on how to get started creating your first package, but if you want to jump straight in, after installing Chocolatey, run the following command:

choco new mypackage

And Chocolatey will create a package, using its built in templating system, that also walks you through the process for finalizing your package.
