Welcome to the dbatools Wiki!

This wiki simply contains a small set of doc pages. The focus of this documentation is to provide some information around our standards, a companion to our contributing guide, along with working with pull request for GitHub.

You can browse this content by using the side bar on the left of this page to view additional content within this wiki.

Note: This is not meant to be a full documentation from beginning to end, just a quick starting point.

Development System

Everyone has their preference, but the following is a general recommendation of the setup used by our contributors:

  • Docker Community Edition
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Extensions (we've added recommendations so on first opening you are prompted to include the following extensions):
    • ms-vscode.PowerShell
    • ms-azuretools.vscode-docker (used with Docker CE)
  • PowerShell modules (Latest of each unless specified):
    • PSScriptAnalyzer
    • Pester
You can’t perform that action at this time.
