Real quick post! If anyone does any serious work in powershell, you may be familiar with how limited the debugging features are. The Integrated Scripting Environment is a good start, but still, it’s quite limited. Fortunately, Adam Driscoll over at csharpening has developed a great visual studio extension for powershell.
This brings so many VS features such as a more robust intellisense, project management, integrated version control, locals and call stacks. You can read more and download the stable release from the visual studio gallery here, or checkout the latest beta on github. I’m looking forward to integrating some existing projects into VS.
