StudioShell: integrating Visual Studio in PowerShell

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/06/10

Wow, it seems I’ve been living under a stond since early 2011: the first StudioShell checkin.

[WayBackStudioShell opens marvellous possibilities in Visual Studio 2010, 2012 and up.

Just look at the feature list:

The features supported by StudioShell include:

  • Support for standard PowerShell profile scripts, as well as StudioShell profile scripts – customize your StudioShell session as you would any other PowerShell session.
  • Manage your projects, references, breakpoints, stack frame locals, menus, toolbars, Visual Studio settings, IDE windows, and even your code from PowerShell scripts, all in a consistent and discoverable way.
  • Solution Modules – save your StudioShell and IDE customizations as a PowerShell module in your solution, and it will automatically be imported into your StudioShell session when the solution is loaded.
  • Simple visualization controls you can invoke from the console – create a graph of project code statistics with one line of script.
  • Fully integrated context-sensitive help.
  • Host indifference – StudioShell features can be used from any suitable PowerShell host, including NuGet, the standard PowerShell console, and the Integrated Scripting Environment.
