Pester Docs

This repository contains the source files used to generate the website.

The website pages are written in markdown files using the .mdx format and are located in the /docs folder.

🔥 One exception: the pages in the "Command Reference" section are auto-generated from Pester's Comment Based Help. Please do not create pull requests for these command reference pages here, but instead fix the corresponding Pester PowerShell source code in pester/Pester repository. For example to change Invoke-Pester command reference, you need to change the help in this file.


To submit an update:

  1. update the markdown .mdx file(s)
  2. submit a pull request

Local Development

The website is built using:



To install all required dependencies and start a local development server:

yarn start

Website Customization

Because the website is using Docusaurus as the underlying technology:


The global CSS overrides for the Pester website are found in src/css/custom.css


The Pester website uses interactive React tables. To change the content of the tables, simply update the correlating .json configuration file as can be seen in this example.

Bumping Docusaurus

To upgrade docusaurus to a more recent version:

  1. Edit package.json
  2. Manually bump the version number of these dependency packages:
    @docusaurus/core": "^2.0.0-alpha.62",
    @docusaurus/preset-classic": "^2.0.0-alpha.62",
  3. Run yarn install
  4. Submit a pull request with (only) these updated files:
    • package.json
    • yarn.lock
