Recently I was busy scripting a Exchange migration (yes, i also do Microsoft besides VMware) in Powershell (Automating Cross-Forest moves from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 and related tasks) for a customer of mine and got annoyed by the limited functionality Windows Powershell ISE (Integrated Scripting Environment) is providing us by default,. I decided to look for a decent and affordable editor for Powershell. That’s when I stumbled upon ISESteroids (http://www.powertheshell.com/isesteroids2/).
ISESteroids is a powershell module which adds all kind of handy functionality to the standard Windows Powershell ISE. Because I really liked it from the start I wanted to write a small blog article about it to share with you guys the 3 functionalities i like most and hope you find them just as useful as I do for writing Powershell scripts, functions and modules. For a total overview of the features of ISESteroids i’d like to point you to http://www.powertheshell.com/isesteroids2/feature-overview/
