PSharp makes PowerShell ISE better

Here’s another cool project created by PowerShell MVP Doug Finke. PSharp is a tool designed for PowerShell’s Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE) editor. Its fast navigation capabilities allows you to quickly identify the functions, variables and commands in the current file, with a simple key stroke.



When you have a long script it is hard to know where exactly a variable or a function is located within the script. With PSharp, you can press Ctrl+Shift+T and get a window that displays where those calls are made and you can easily navigate through them with the up or down arrows.

And that’s only a part of what it’s capable of. For more information go to the project page on GitHub.

    PSharp is very cool.

    There are two PowerShell ISE Add-ons that are even very cool with that topic:

    ISE VariableExplorer by Raimund Andree http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/PowerShell-ISE-VariableExpl-fef9ff01

    The Variable Explorer is a dream. You can see a list of all Variables and their values live in action!
