250000 Downloads in Technet Script Gallery

Jaap Brasser - TechNet Script GalleryApproximately one year ago I saw the number of downloads tick over a hundred thousand, today my total downloads from the TechNet Script Gallery has reached 250,000.  To celebrate this milestone I have uploaded all of the scripts I have stored in the TechNet Script Gallery also to GitHub to simplify the updating and collaboration with others.

My personal preferred method of installing and sharing scripts is by using the PowerShell Gallery, which is available at PowerShellGallery.com or by using the PowerShellGet cmdlets, for example the following two lines of code can find the scripts and modules I have currently posted:

1
$(Find-Script;Find-Module).Where{$_.Author -match 'Jaap Brasser'}

FindModuleandScripts

The complete list of my scripts is now available on GitHub:
Jaap Brasser – GitHub – SharedScripts
Jaap Brasser - GitHub - SharedScripts

And also in the TechNet Script Gallery:

As I personally mostly see benefit in sharing of modules and not so much single scripts and function I am working on converting some of the scripts I have written into modules and once they are finalized I will upload those to the PowerShell Gallery as well. So my question to the community is as follows, which improvements are you most interested in or what would you like to see next?

Feel free to use the comment section underneath this post to share your ideas or feedback. That is it for now, until the next milestone!

Uploaded CustomizeWindows10 Module to PowerShell Gallery

Today I finished another major update to the CustomizeWindows10 module I have been working on together with Jan Egil Ring. This module started as a means for me to configure/tweak Windows 10. When I was experimenting with the various Windows 10 insider builds I found myself configuring the same settings on each deployment and I was looking to simplify this process. The module contains a number of tweaks and configuration options to customize and personalize the Windows 10 experience.

CustomizeWindows10-0.0.0.4

In the past I have uploaded the majority of my scripts and functions to the TechNet Script Gallery, but recently I have started using GitHub as a version control system for my scripts. Eventually I plan to upload my entire collection of scripts to GitHub as it provides the opportunity for easier interaction with a wider community but for now this module is my first experiment with both the PowerShell Gallery as well as GitHub.

The module consists of both a PowerShell module as well as a DSC module to allow complete flexibility when applying these settings. In the following example the module will be used to ensure that hidden files are visible and that file extensions are always shown:

Import-Module -Name CustomizeWindows10
Enable-ShowFileExtension
Enable-ShowHiddenFiles
Get-ShowHiddenFiles
