Chocolatey: The Missing Package Manager for Windows

The missing package manager for Windows that will make your life 1000x easier.

If you’re a macOS user, or followed most tutorials here on FSM, you’ve probably noticed we mention Homebrew a lot. Homebrew is a package manager for macOS ( and Linux ) that allows you to quickly install and manage apps.

Let’s say you want to install Firefox. Normally you will do a web search for Firefox, click on the Mozilla link, click the download button, wait for the .dmg to download, open the dmg, and drag the app to /Applications folder. With Homebrew, all you have to do is type brew cask install firefox in the terminal. Want to install Firefox ESR or Nightly, no problem just replace firefox with firefox-esr or firefox-nightly in the command above. That’s pretty darn neat.

So macOS users have Homebrew, Linux distros all come with their own package manager ( and Homebrew, however I’m not sure how many people are using it on Linux ). What about Windows?

Windows user have Chocolatey. A package manager similar to Homebrew, that we’ve mentioned in a few tutorials here on FSM. If you’ve never heard of Chocolatey or you’re not using it yet, you’re missing out. So let’s jump right in and see how to install and use Chocolatey.
