Most scripts/modules have a similar directory structure. You shouldn't waste your time creating it. Just use this module to get a head start and add to your new structure as needed.
PowerRails will also helps you to become a better developer.
We include the following helpers to keep you on track
- Script Analyzer is a set of rules that are based on guidance from the PowerShell team. By default we enforce these rules.
- Pester is a framework for running unit tests to execute and validate PowerShell commands. You should test your code. Pester helps you with that. Sample tests included.
- PSake is a build automation tool written in PowerShell. Builds glue everything together. Analyze your script, run your unit testing and deploy!
- PSDeploy is a quick and dirty module that simplifies deployments. If everything checks out, deploy our script to where ever you'd like.
There is only 1 cmdlet to learn. New-PowerRailsItem PowerRails is semi-opinioned in the tabs vs spaces discussion. We prefer spaces but I've included a switch to use tabs if you prefer.
