Set of commands to install PowerShell modules from central directory, local files, or the web.
In your prompt execute:
(new-object Net.WebClient).DownloadString("http://psget.net/GetPsGet.ps1") | iex
And if you get something like this:
Downloading PsGet from https://github.com/psget/psget/raw/master/PsGet/PsGet.psm1 PsGet is installed and ready to use
You are done. The PowerShell script downloads
GetPsGet.ps1 and sends it to
Invoke-Expression to install the PsGet Module.
Alternatively, you can install manually
PsGet.psm1to your modules folder (e.g.
Import-Module PsGet(or add this command to your profile)
- Install modules from central directory, local files, or the web
- Install modules to user profile or for all users (elevated access required)
- Install multifile modules from ZIP
- Import module after install
- Alter your profile to load a given module PowerShell starts up
- Execute Install.ps1
- Tab completion for modules, ismo Ps
To install something from central directory just type:
This command queries central directory to find required information about the PsUrl module and install it if found.
As another example on how to install the
PsUrl module, use
install-module -ModuleUrl https://github.com/chaliy/psurl/raw/master/PsUrl/PsUrl.psm1
With zipped modules like
posh-git, you can install zip package via
install-module -ModuleUrl https://github.com/dahlbyk/posh-git/zipball/master
This command executes
Install.ps1 which installs script for
posh-git is in the directory, so
install-module posh-git is enough.)
And of course, it supports local files, both ZIP and PSM1:
install-module -ModulePath \TestModules\HelloWorld.zip install-module -ModulePath \TestModules\HelloWorld.psm1
You can also have a given module start with your profile:
install-module PsUrl -Startup
NuGet can even install the modules:
install-module -nugetpackageid SomePowerShellModuleOnNuget install-module -nugetpackageid SomePrivatePowerShellModule -nugetsource http://mynugetserver/nuget/feed/
If you need update module, execute
Update-Module which downloads the latest version and replace local one
