Installing PowerShell Core on macOS and Linux | Microsoft Docs

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/26

I forgot to blog about this before, but 2 months ago PowerShell core came available: [WayBack] PowerShell Core 6.0: Generally Available (GA) and Supported! | PowerShell Team Blog.

[WayBack] Installing PowerShell Core on macOS and Linux | Microsoft Docs is easy (one way is through homebrew:

$ brew tap caskroom/cask
$ brew cask install powershell

If you already installed a beta, then the steps are these:

$ brew update
$ brew cask reinstall powershell

Note that after installation, it is known as pwsh (at least one of the betas named it powershell) to set PowerShell Core apart from PowerShell*:

$ pwsh --version
PowerShell v6.0.2

Via: [WayBack] PowerShell Core 6.0 is a new edition of PowerShell that is cross-platform (Windows, macOS, and Linux), open-source, and built for heterogeneous environm… – Lars Fosdal – Google+

*pwsh versus powershell

There has been quite a discussion on the PowerShell Core repository on the rename, but I think it is for a good reason.

Too bad that during part of the beta, the old name powershell was used, but beta-time means things break every now and then.

PowerShell Core is sufficiently different from prior PowerShell versions to warrant a name change. This also makes it a lot easier to use them side-by-side.

Many other names (like posh, pcsh or psh) were considered, usually because of naming conflicts with existing tools (like posh) or easy confusion with existing shells (like pcsh and csh). A benefit on Linux/macOS is that it now ends with sh like virtually all other shells.

Sometimes clouds vaporise: the Docker Cloud shuts down in ~8 weeks.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/26

From [WayBackDocker – Docker Cloud Migration Notification and FAQs:

The services on Docker Cloud that provide application, node, and swarm cluster management will be shutting down on May 21.

If you do not migrate by May 21, your applications running on the Docker node cluster management service will cease to operate.

Swarms will continue to function; however, if you do not retrieve your SSH keys for the Swarms being managed by our swarm cluster management service, you will be unable to access your swarms using your Docker ID. For instructions on how to retrieve and access your Swarms with SSH keys, please refer to the Docker docs.

So soon, no more [WayBack] Docker Cloud – Build, Ship and Run any App, Anywhere.

Remember: still the cloud is other peoples computers, so be sure you can move when needed.
