TFS inside PowerGUI

Steve Crouse has recently published his PowerGUI pack for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server – thus, fulfilling James Manning’s long time wish. 😉

This is a very nice tool allowing for browsing the work items for all the projects on a Team Foundation Server either by area or iteration. In addition you can view all open work items assigned to you, regardless of project. Project metadata such as the work item editing form definitions can be viewed for each project.

PowerShell-based PowerGUI console for Visual Studio Team Foundation Services

The default work item edit form can be launched for work items (although until PowerShell 2.0 is released with support for execution under Single-threaded Apartment mode the form does not function correctly.)

And, as usual the PowerShell code tab lets you easily see how everything you do translates into PowerShell – so you can later use this knowledge to automate things in your project (Steve basically loads the Team Explorer assemblies and uses them to connect to the server and retrieve data.)

You can download the VSTFS pack and leave your comments and feedback to Steve.
