Note: This is a source-only release. The Cmdlet designer is a sharing platform. It requires a supporting database and web service, as described in the Deployment Guide. Please see the documentation for more information.
The Cmdlet Designer makes it much easier for teams to concentrate on the design, naming, and consistency of their cmdlets, while also guaranteeing name registration and collision avoidance across a project.
To sweeten the deal, it offers:
Integrated help authoring
Efficient bulk operations (parameter and cmdlet cloning)
Generation of cmdlet code
Full scripting support
Automatic code-spec comparison and testing
Role-based security, history logging, and more.
Architecturally, the Cmdlet Designer offers a reference implementation to benefit developers as well:
UI on top of Cmdlets
UI extensibility through scripting
Cmdlet / Webservice interaction
Role-based security, with a trusted subsystem implementation
