Script orginization

    Question

  • Hello fellow scripting folks

    Does anyone know of the best way to organize powershell scripts for a bunch of team members to use?  I am looking for a script repository that would allow for someone to search certain key words which would display a list of scripts and than possibly displaying alongside each script a short summary of the script.

    The problem i'm facing is I myself might know what the script does by my naming convention however my colleagues do not.  I've searched and searched but cant seem to find this. Any recommendation is appreciated.

  • Look at GitHub:

    https://github.com/

    You can also use OneGet to set up a local repository.

  • I am using GitHub and Jenkins, but that is mostly for script repository and for versioning and build purposes.

    There is one app that I am using to search thru the selected repository by keywords. It is even skimming thru the scripts itself, to find a match.

    It is called Windows Grep 2.3

    To me, it is a life saver. lets say that I want to check where in all my code I have used a certain function. It will list you all the scripts where you actually used it.

  • Thank you, i'll check out Windows Grep

    I use GitLab but like Vlad817263 said, its more version control. I am looking for more of a repository that is searchable by keywords and has a quick description of all the scripts without having to open the script up.

  • Well, Grep is just finding the keyword. It can be in the script name, or within the script (which is very useful). 

    To be able to see quick description, I don't think that it is possible with grep. But try it and let me know if you like it.
