Examples

Example 1: Create a script file, add content to it, and publish it

The New-ScriptFileInfo cmdlet creates a script file named Demo-Script.ps1. Get-Content displays the content of Demo-Script.ps1. The Add-Content cmdlet adds a function and a workflow to Demo-Script.ps1.

$newScriptInfo = @{
  Path = 'D:\ScriptSharingDemo\Demo-Script.ps1'
  Version = '1.0'
  Author = 'author@contoso.com'
  Description = "my test script file description goes here"
}
New-ScriptFileInfo @newScriptInfo
Get-Content -Path $newScriptInfo.Path

<#psscriptinfo .version="" 1.0="" .author="" pattif@microsoft.com="" .companyname="" .copyright="" .tags="" .licenseuri="" .projecturi="" .iconuri="" .externalmoduledependencies="" .requiredscripts="" .externalscriptdependencies="" .releasenotes="" #="">
