PS C:\Repos\PowerShellGet>

PS C:\Repos\PowerShellGet> .\build.ps1 -Publish
  • Run functional tests
PS C:\Repos\PowerShellGet> Invoke-PSPackageProjectTest -Type Functional
  • Import the module into a new PowerShell session

# If running Windows PowerShell

PowerShellGet consists of .NET binaries and so can be imported into a PowerShell session only once. Since the PSPackageProject module, used to build the module, has a dependency on earlier versions of PowerShellGet, the newly built module cannot be imported into that session. The new module can only be imported into a new session that has no prior imported PowerShellGet module. You will recieve warning messages in the console if you encounter this issue.


PowerShellGet is the package manager for PowerShell
