PSHTML is a cross platform Powershell module to generate HTML markup language within a DSL on Windows and Linux.

Summary

PSHTML allow people to write a HTML document(s) using powershell-like syntax, which makes building webpages easier, and less cumbersome for 'native' PowerSheller's.

PSHTML offers the flexibility of the PowerShell language, and allows to add logic in powershell directly in the HTML structure. This open the possibility to add loops, conditional statements, switches, functions, classes, calling external modules etc.. all that directly from the same editor.

PSHTML comes with template functionality which allows one to include parts of webpages that are identical throughout the web page Eg: footer, Header,Menu etc..

Using PSHTML, offers code completion and syntax highlighting from the the default powershell language. As PSHTML respects the W3C standards, any HTML errors, will be spotted immediately.

Since version 0.7.0 PSHTML supports the creation of charts.


Detailed introduction

You can find here , an introduction talk about PSHTML by Stéphane van Gulick which teach you in the first step everything you need to know to get started with PSHTML and show concret implementation examples. In the second part of the talk, Stéphane explains how one can extend PSHTML further by coupling it together with Polaris creating a full webserver 100% in powershell.

A few Basic examples of what PSHTML can achieve

Basic page

The following quick example displays a simple page, with a few headers, divs, paragraphs, and header elements

Import-Module PSHTML

html {

    head{

        title "woop title"
        link "css/normalize.css" "stylesheet"
    }

    body{

        h1 "This is h1 Title in header"
        div {
            p {
                "This is simply a paragraph in a div."
            }

            h1 "This is h1"
            h2 "This is h2"
            h3 "This is h3"
            h4 "This is h4"
            h5 "This is h5"
            h6 "This is h6"
            strong "plop";"Woop"
        }

        h1 "My favorites Fruits"

        $Fruits = "Apple","Banana","Orange","Ananas"

        ul {

            foreach($fruit in $Fruits){
                li {
                    $fruit
                }
            }
        }

    }
    footer {
        p{
            "Copyright 2019"
        }
    }

}

A more advanced example

The following example is a tribute to PowerShell GodFather 'Jeffrey Snover' where we generated a BIO of the ShellFather gathering data from Wikipedia and other sources, all that using Powershell.

Charts

With version 0.7.0 PSHTML introduced the functionality of charting. In v0.8.0 this functionality has been extended and offers now a total of 7 different chart types to communicate your data to your end users, and to make your webpages look amazingly cool!
