How to use this?

To start installation process copy and paste following string to command prompt:

@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ('$user="manekovskiy";$branch="master";(new-object net.webclient).DownloadFile("https://raw.github.com/$user/devenv-setup-scripts/$branch/install.ps1\", "$env:TEMP\install.ps1");& $env:TEMP\install.ps1 $user $branch')"

This powershell one-liner consists of three parts:

  1. There are two global variables $user (github user name) and $branch (name of branch of this repository which you want to use as a source of installation scripts).

These variables are used to define the URI of the install.ps1 script and should be changed if you forked this repository and using your own set of packages:

$user="manekovskiy";$branch="master";

  1. Download install.ps1 script and save it to the %TEMP% folder:

(new-object net.webclient).DownloadFile("https://raw.github.com/$user/devenv-setup-scripts/$branch/install.ps1\", "$env:TEMP\install.ps1");

  1. Start the installation process by running downloaded install.ps1 script:

& $env:TEMP\install.ps1 $user $branch')

Why do we have install.ps1 and not just run-install.ps1?

To make installation and configuration scripts really reusable we need to have an additional layer of abstraction over actual scripts. Think about install.ps1 as of unified starting point for all installation routines (just as it is done in Chocolatey and many other non-Windows tools and applications).

Also having install.ps1 makes it easier to maintain and develop installation scripts changes are not necessarily affecting the way of how users are launching the installation process (that "monstrous" powershell one-liner remains unchanged).
