Presentation Transcript

  1. Neil Iversen Inetium justaddcode.com Extending PowerShell

  2. The Plan • PowerShell Sales Pitch • Creating Scripts • Type Extensions • Rolling your own Cmdlets • Other Extensionibility • Providers • Hosting PowerShell

  3. PowerShell Sales Pitch • Looks like DOS • No Mouse Support • No Intellisense • Additional Download • Capable of Spreading Malware • Maybe there’s a reason I’m not in Sales

  4. Revised PowerShell Sales Pitch • Still Looks like DOS • But much more powerful • Now with Extra Tab Support! • 3rd Party Support • Bundled with Win2k8 • Built in security measures • Code Signing is Possible • 9 out of 10 Dentists agree: • “PowerShell makes teeth whiter!”

  5. Still Not Sold? • It doesn’t have to look ugly • Full .NET Access • Loosely typed language • The Pipeline • Pass as full .NET objects • PowerShell: Command1 |Command2| Command3 • C# Equivalent: Command3(Command2(Command1()));

  6. Sales Demo

  7. Functional Programming • Familiar Constructs • Function • If/then • For/while • Store in PS1 files • Run with & ‘path\file.ps1’ • Include with . ‘path\file.ps1’ • Accepts Arguments • Function name ($val1, $val2) • Or $args array

  8. Filters • Similar to Functions • Can still take arguments • Runtime Difference • Functions: Run Once In Pipeline • Filters: Run for Each Pipeline object • Biggest disadvantage: No ‘initialize’ stage filter filesonly { if(-not $_.PSIsContainer) { $_ } }

  9. Scripting Demo

  10. Type Extensions • Take advantage of loose typing • Extend existing types • Or Create your Own • Using Add-Member • Fields • Properties • Methods • Make Permanent with ps1xml • Update-TypeData –prepend MyNewTypes.ps1xml

  11. Type Extension Demo

  12. Creating a Cmdlet • Compiled and Portable • Bundled together in a Snapin • Inherit from CmdLet • WriteObject() • Sends data back to the Pipeline • [Cmdlet(VerbsCommon.Get, “CmdletName“]

  13. Demo: Cmdlet Building

  14. Providers • Act like a ‘Drive’ • Implement actions like • Get/Set/Delete Item • Some Available Providers • Active Directory • SharePoint (v2) • SQL Server • Access

  15. Demo: OOB Providers

  16. Hosting PowerShell • Two Levels of Difficulty • Execute Commands • Host the UI

  17. Hosting PowerShell • Execute Commands • The easiest option • RunspaceInvoke.Invoke(“dir”) • Returns PSObject(s)

  18. Hosting PowerShell • Host the UI • Very difficult • Can provide immense amounts of power • Examples: • PowerShellPlus • PoshConsole

  19. Demo: Hosting PowerShell
