I decided to begin learning C# - I’m not a developer by trade, but I enjoy “coding” in PowerShell and making apps with it (I can imagine how hilarious our software development department would find that statement) so I wanted to explore programming and in turn, making powershell. I have made PowerShell modules with PowerShell, and I want to try making some Powershell Modules in C#.
I wanted to have a nosey around the PowerShell folder, and see how Jeffrey Snover and the team have done it, but obviously everything is compiled. So, I wanted to know if the PowerShell source code is available anyway?
I had another question.
I have made GUI’s in PowerShell, one of my packages is about 5,000 lines… which in PowerShell is a lot in my opinion! Tab controls, Progress bars etc, however, it’s hard to develop it into much more, as Powershell is a single thread process. A Powershell studio trial helped me get a few of the basics in place, but I wanted to find out if there’s a way I could incorporate a C# front end, so I could have an interactive application while processes run, while still using my PowerShell code?
I can imagine that if I was to try rewriting all the functional code in the background in C#, it wouldn’t be done until 2020!
Really long post, and waffled a bit, but I’d love to see people’s thoughts and knowledge on this
