So I’ve been using PowerShellPlus for the last few days, and in short – its awesome. The ability to put my script editor on one monitor, click run right there and see the results of the script on the other monitor made me very happy. :) If you haven’t checked it out, you definitely should. Its basically an integrated development environment for PowerShell scripting and debugging. A PowerShell console combined with an editor complete with watch window and step-through debugger.
As soon as you type “get-“ (or any other verb), PowerShellPlus intellisense kicks in, giving you a list of available cmdlets to choose from. Finish your cmdlet and type in the “-“ for an attribute, and intellisense kicks in again, giving you a list of available attributes you can use.
Another great feature is that PowerShellPlus integrates the help of all of your installed snap-ins into one central “learning center”. No matter what snap-in you need documentation for, its all in the same place in a much more readable chm format.
