Three PowerGUI Script Editor Add-ins

I have created three script editor add-ins for the PowerGUI script editor;

I mentioned the first one in a previous post (

You can download that add-in at the following page: Copy to Colorized HTML

The second add-in was created to support my work on the PowerShell Bible, as code lines need to be less than 80 characters, I am using lots of splatting. It’s a lot easier for me to type the cmdlet name and parameters on one line, and then convert to a splatted has table, as I get intellesense and tab completion.

The third add-in will copy the current script to a new window. As part of this, it creates a new folder for the new script, and saves it with a file name of <script name>,Copy.n.ps1 where ‘n’ is equal to the current number of copies in that folder.

I started this out as a fun follow up to Doug Finke’s version for the PowerShell ISE:

I thought it would be a simple copy to new window, but Denniver on the PowerGUI forums suggested the save to a new file concept. Thanks, Denniver!

Download them, play with them, leave comments here or on the PowerGUI forums, and I will try to extend them to fit your needs.

      It’s not a “copy” – I use Ctrl-Alt-C 😉
      You use Ctrl-Alt-J
