ISE Scripting Geek Module

Over the last year I’ve posted functions I’ve written to extend the Windows PowerShell ISE. I have finally pulled everything together into a module I’m calling the ISE Scripting Geek. Download and extract the zip file (below) to your modules folder. You should end up with a path like ‘C:\Users\Jeff\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\ISEScriptingGeek’.

In the ISE, import the module:

Or do as I did and add it to your Powershell ISE profile script. The module will add an ISE Scripting Geek menu add on.

Here you will find my tools for printing a script, signing a script, converting aliases to commands (and vice versa) and a few other goodies. I’ve also included my function to keep track of most recently used scripts. If you don’t want to use some of the tools, edit the psm1 file and comment out what you don’t want. If there’s something you’d like to see, let me know. No promises but I might have something stashed away.

Friday Fun The Scripting Geek is Here

I am proud (and a wee bit nervous) to announce the arrival of, a site devoted to the lifestyle of your favorite scripting geek – you! My goal is to provide a one stop shop for anything scripting related. Currently will direct you to an online store that offers tshirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, coffee mugs and a few other goodies — all with a scripting theme.

I plan on adding new designs and products to this store as often as i can. Many designs come in a variety of colors and styles. If you see a design you like but not in the color or style you’d like, please let me know and I can probably add it to the store. By the way, prices drop when you purchase items in bulk. So if your company is looking for some conference or tradeshow giveaways, the ScriptingGeek may have just what you need.

Eventually will take you to a site with everything else other than apparel. That is still under development but I wanted to start spreading the word about the shop. Warmer weather is here and you probably need a few new geek-wear additions to your wardrobe. I’ll have a few items at the PowerShell Deep Dive conference next week. They might even be giveaways during my talk. And look for me at TechEd in Atlanta, I’ll likely have some gear there as well.

I hope you’ll drop by.
