On the 20th of February 2014, I published some of my PowerCLI scripts to GitHub in an attempt to have some sort of version control system in place as well as to make the scripts available to the general public. However, my current role doesn't really require that much scripting, and it really is only the occasional script that I have to put together. Therefore, I've only learned a little of PowerShell, basically enough to get the job done. I come from a C/C++ programming background and feel much more comfortable when working on a file with a .c, .cpp or a .h file extension.

Too many times now have I had to browse in a billion locations on my file systems, trying to find that one script that I wrote two or three years ago. I really have  a bad habit of misfiling little scripts. That has got to change. So, I have started a little project to collect all of the PowerCLI scripts that I write and use from time to time, in a Git repository. I really needed to find a way of keeping scripts version controlled in a distributed system, whilst at the same time keeping them in a cloud based storage location other than simply Dropbox, where others can collaborate and add to it if they would wish to do so.

The repository is still very small, as I've only started working on it yesterday, however, as I write more and more scripts, I will be adding them to the repository and pushing them up to GitHub. There's no need to be able to use Git in order to make use of the scripts. Just download whatever you need and run them. However, feel free to contribute more scripts if you like.

Here is the URL to the repository: https://github.com/rynardtspies/ScriptKit

@drusse11 Cool! Thanks! I shall have a look. I've been so rammed with work, that I've not had the time to get this… https://t.co/HWz73UDZND
