Creating your first PowerGUI Script Editor Add-On

We’ve published a step by step tutorial on creating add-ons for PowerGUI Script Editor. It takes you from the obligatory ‘Hello World’ example (I am sure you have always wanted PowerGUI Editor to show this at start-up! :)) all the way through creating a useful add-on (actually the Clear Console add-on we have) with menu item, proper clean up code, and so on.

We also made available full add-on SDK which documents all the APIs we expose.

These are more powerful than ISE extensibility points. Giving you the ability to redefine (or intercept and ammend) any standard functionality in PowerGUI Script Editor, add your own menu and toolbar items (anywhere), event-handlers, and even custom dockable panes within the editor. With the SDK we provide, the sky is really the limit.

PowerGUI Script Editor is one of the richest PowerShell IDEs out there and add-ons take it to the next level. We already have some really useful add-ons – and hopefully the tutorial and SDK can help you add whatever functionality you were missing.

Give them a try and let us know what you think!
