vNugglets PowerShell module release!

vNugglets PowerShell Module!While we have amassed a healthy stack of useful, VMware vSphere-related functions and code snippets here at vNugglets, the code management/interaction can certainly become tedious in more than one way:  consumption of the snippets is not the most straight forward, finding snippets/functions is a bit tedious, maintenance and updates to code does not necessarily show when the code is in some older post.

So, why not make what the people want:  a vNugglets PowerShell module?  Why not indeed.  So, we did.  This initial module release not only focused on function-ifying snippets, standardizing parameters, fleshing out comment-based help (many of the hallmarks of a legitimate PowerShell module), but also set about improving on several of the vNugglets snippets/functions from across the years -- hurray!  It also captured ideas on several improvements to make in the near future.

For now the module will live at the vNugglets GitHub project vNuggletsPSMod.  It has all kinds of informative supporting docs, like the ReadMe (with a QuickStart section) and the ChangeLog, that will fill you in on all of the nitty-gritty details.

Examples

We also made a vNugglets.Utility Example page so that you can see straight away what are some of the exciting capabilities of this module.

As for getting the module itself, check out the vNuggletsPSMod Releases page, which has the .zip file of just the PowerShell module (see the QuickStart mentioned above for getting started with the module).  The future fate of the module may be that it is housed in the PowerShell Gallery, but we have not invested the time to work on that just yet.

So check out the docs, grab the module, and let the good times roll with a newly born module that will surely be near and dear to all of our hearts.  And, now that we have the project on GitHub, please feel free to help us out in making it even mo better!
