Have a nice day,
Recently in the German Technet Powershell forum, the question came up on how to drag files into a Powershell script in order to process them.
As you can’t drag files directly onto a .ps1-file, one way is to use a wrapper-script.
But I prefer using a GUI for tasks like this. And in this case, its actually quite simple.

I know quite a few admins who don’t like GUIs, for some reason or another. Linux admins especially, they are the high priests of the console cult. I’m quite sure some of them really believe GUIs are evil somehow and not meant to be. I guess it has something to do with the fact that for quite some time GUI was a synonym for MS Windows.

It took me a bit longer than expected, but here is the new version of Snippet Manager: over 4000 lines of Powershell code and lots of new features, improvements and bug fixes!
I’m quite happy about this, because although i had a good feeling ;) there were quite a few great entries like WMISpy and DemoPowerShell from James Brundage or the Help Browser from Gyorgy Nemesmagasi. The price for the best powerpack went to Adam Murray for his great HP Virtual Connect Management Pack. (Read about all winning entries over at Kirks blog.)
I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Kirk for his expertise and his help with a few ugly bugs during the development of my add-ons. Thanks!
It was a lot of fun participating in the contest Continue reading “PowerGUI Challenge 2010 winners / Snippet Manager voted “Best Add-On””
I made a video tutorial for the SnippetManager especially for beginners, which focuses on creating new snippets and how to use placeholders.
(!) Its about version 0.9 and it still covers all the basic functions, but you may also want to read the help file to find out about all the improvements and new features in the latest version.
You can watch the tutorial here:

What it is
With the SnippetManager add-on you can manage your code snippets. You can easily create new snippets, edit existing ones, create new categories and much more.
