Get comfortable on the Windows command line
Looking for familiar Unix tools? Tired of PowerShell’s Verb-Noun verbosity? Scoop helps you get the programs you need, with a minimal amount of point-and-clicking.
Say goodbye to permission pop-ups
Scoop installs programs to your home directory by default. So you don’t need admin permissions to install programs, and you won’t see UAC popups every time you need to add or remove a program.
Scoop reads the README for you
Not sure whether you need 32-bit or 64-bit? Can’t remember that command you have to type after you install to get that other thing you need? Scoop has you covered. Just "scoop install" and you’ll be ready to work in no time.
Scoop installs the tools you know and love
scoop install curl
Installs in seconds
iex (new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('https://get.scoop.sh')
Note: if you get an error you might need to change the execution policy (i.e. enable PowerShell) with
Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -scope CurrentUser.
