Getting started with chocolatey

Well, looks like I can cross one more thing off my list of todos.

Take a look at chocolatey

What Rob has done is to give us a way to have a machine wide nuget repository. It reminds me a lot of homebrew if you are familiar with that sort of thing.

Because it is machine wide I wasn’t quite sure how to get started with this, however once I just tried it I noticed that Rob already had instructions setup (you just don’t see them until you try to install)

So, either open up an existing project or just create a new blank one in visual studio.
Then do install-package chocolatey and follow the instructions. When finished you can uninstall the package or if you created a new project just throw it away.

Nice work Rob!
