VS Code supports project-level snippets (just found out).

I will expand this out as time goes. Initially just includes a few function templates but will work on adding the test templates referenced in sqlcollaborative/dbatools-templates#20

Type of Change

  • Bug fix (non-breaking change, fixes #)
  • New feature (non-breaking change, adds functionality)
  • Breaking change (effects multiple commands or functionality)
  • Ran manual Pester test and has passed (`.\tests\manual.pester.ps1)
  • Adding code coverage to existing functionality
  • Pester test is included
  • Nunit test is included
  • Documentation
  • Build system


Snippets can be a replacement for having to upkeep the template repository for contributors that use VS Code.


The project level snippet file is detected by VS Code once it loads the project/workspace folder. A user would follow the steps below to utilize them as they need/want based on what they are contributing. The example below would be for adding a new command/function.

  1. Create a new file in the .\functions\Set-DbaMyFunction.ps1
  2. Use keyboard shortcut: CTRL + ALT + J
  3. Select the required snippet within the workspace snippets listed:


These can be adjusted to be full command templates like the two listed. I can also include code snippets for whatever pattern we would like to setup for this project (e.g. foreach-dbs).
