Tokens

The bucket token environment variable must match with the chosen Release service that is, it must be one of:
  • JRELEASER_CHOCOLATEY_GITHUB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_CHOCOLATEY_GITLAB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_CHOCOLATEY_GITEA_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_CHOCOLATEY_CODEBERG_TOKEN

If a matching token is not found then the releaser’s token will be used instead:

  • JRELEASER_GITHUB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_GITLAB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_GITEA_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_CODEBERG_TOKEN

On GitHub, you can’t use the default secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN as this token only works for the repository that’s running the workflow. You must configure a Personal Access Token instead.

DownloadURL

JReleaser follows these rules to find the download URL to use for a given artifact:

  1. if artifact.extraProperties.chocolateyDownloadUrl exists, use it.

  2. if artifact.extraProperties.downloadUrl exists, use it.

  3. if explicit downloadUrl is set on chocolatey, use it.

  4. if distribution.extraProperties.chocolateyDownloadUrl exists, use it.

  5. if distribution.extraProperties.downloadUrl exists, use it.

  6. if releaser.${git}.skipRelease is false then use the releaser’s downloadUrl.

  7. if releaser.${git}.skipRelease is true then look for a matching uploader given an extraProperty named downloadUrlFrom on artifact, distribution, `chocolatey (in that order). The value must be <uploaderType>:<uploaderName> such as "artifactory:app" or "s3:uploads".

  8. fail if no suitable URL is found.

With no extra configuration from your side rule 6. will be chosen which is the suitable default that most projects need.

Example

Assuming the current version is 1.2.3, and a distribution named app, the above configuration will generate the following files which will be published to duke/chocolatey-bucket/app

app.nuspec
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Package Version

Be aware that Chocolatey imposes certain rules on package versions such as:

  • Up to 3 numeric elements separated by .

  • An optional tag separated by - from the numeric elements

  • If a 4th element is present separated by . it must be an integer or a number following the yyyyMMdd format.

Some examples of valid package versions are

  • 1

  • 1.2

  • 1.2.3

  • 1.2.3.4

  • 1.2.3.20220731

  • 1-ALPHA1

  • 1.2-RC1

  • 1.2.3-BETA

Skip Artifacts

If there is more than one matching artifact in a given distribution you may add a skipChocolatey extra property to the target artifact to mark it as skipped for packaging with Chocolatey.

Remote Build

It’s expected that you take care of creating a nuget package and publish it to the desired location if remoteBuild is set to true. Templates for GitHub Actions will be available when the chosen releaser is GitHub.

The Push workflow triggers whenever a new tag is pushed to the bucket repository.
The Trigger workflow is triggered manually, use for the first publication or if the automatic workflow fails for some reason.

Templates

The default location for templates is:

src/jreleaser/distributions/<distribution-name>/chocolatey

The following list shows the filenames that may be used to override default templates:

  • binary.nuspec.tpl

  • tools/chocolateyinstall.ps1.tpl

  • tools/chocolateyuninstall.ps1.tpl

  • .github/workflows/push.yml.tpl

  • .github/workflows/trigger.yml.tpl

Any additional files found in the template directories will be copied as is unless their filename ends with .tpl in which case Name Templates substitution will take place.

Templates may be initialized using the template command

Skip Templates

You may skip any template files by defining a set of skip rules in the skipTemplates property. For example you may use any of these expressions to skip a template named README.md.tpl:

  • README.md.tpl: matches the full template name

  • README.md: matches the transformed template name

  • README.*: matches using a regex
