I wrote several blog posts about this:

  1. Install SharePoint Designer with Chocolatey
  2. Chocolatey and SharePoint
  3. SharePoint Search Query Tool
  4. Install all the great SharePoint Tools with one line of PowerShell

and even created a video:

Do you miss a tool?

If you miss a tool, I would be happy to add it. Please leave a comment.
