Because of its CLI nature it would be awesome to be able to install megatools with a package manager on Windows too.
Would you be able to distribute the Win version of this software through chocolatey?

I think it doesn't need introductions since it is well known, but here is the link, just in case: https://chocolatey.org/

Hi, I don't use windows, and I don't know chocolatey. I generally don't do most of the distribution either. In the GNU/Linux world, other people get the source and package it for myriad distros/architectures. For windows I don't expect people to know how to build megatools + 10 other dependencies, so I cross-build that myself. But that's the limit of my support.

If you'd like to be the packager for chocolatey I don't mind supporting you by sending you e-mail whenever new megatools is released (which is not often, if you look at the official web page), and you can then dowload prebuilt package for win32/win64 and do the chocolatey magic. I'd also add mention to the website/docs about chocolatey and how can people contact you with issues with chocolatey packaging.

Then, if I have your approval and I happen to find the time in the next month or so, I'd be glad to look into packaging it myself and reporting back to you when/if it's done.

I made and submitted the Megatools package. Now it is availlable through chocolatey.
You can find its page at this link: https://chocolatey.org/packages/megatools/

Sorry for trouble, but I had to re-build the packages, because libcurl got built with a wrong ssl backend. I didn't bump the version for that, because the code is the same.

No problem, I'll reupload the package as soon as I can

Hi, the current chocolatey package uses a wrong URL to download megatools.
