PowerShell Script Templates

Adding standard header with disclaimer, copyright, and so on to your scripts is very easy. If you would like to (or have to – because of your company’s policies) use a certain template for your scripts – just define is as a code snippet in PowerGUI Script Editor.

Once you do that, the template is just a click- (or Ctrl-I-) away:

header_snippet(Note that snippets are alphabetically sorted so using underscore to get your ahead of others is a valid trick.)

And then, once you select the snippet you would probably get something like:

header_addedHopefully, this will save you a few extra seconds a day wasted on meaningless copy/paste. 🙂

Detailed instructions on adding your code snippets can be found here.

    Thanks! This is very useful feature in PowerGUI. This can really save my time, bacause I had to add my custom templates to scripts each time when I wrote new scripts. Now it is so easy.. 🙂
