Search and install PowerShell modules easy.

Get started

While this tool streamlines installation of the modules, it should be installed.

Installation

In your PowerShell console execute:

(new-object Net.WebClient).DownloadString("http://psget.net/GetPsGet.ps1") | iex

You are done. This nice line of PowerShell script will download GetPsGet.ps1 and send it to Invoke-Expression to install PsGet Module.

Alternatively you can do installation manually

  1. Download PsGet.psm1 from https://github.com/psget/psget/
  2. Copy PsGet.psm1 to your modules folder (e.g. Modules\PsGet\ )
  3. Execute Import-Module PsGet (or add this to your profile)
  4. Enjoy!

Examples

To install something (in our case PsUrl) from central directory just type:

install-module PsUrl

Of course, you can browse/search modules directory:

Get-PsGetModuleInfo Posh*

FAQ

Q: Error "File xxx cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system. Please see "get-help about_signing" for more details."

A: By default, PowerShell restricts execution of all scripts. This is all about security. To "fix" this run PowerShell as Administrator and call

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

For mode details run get-help about_signing or get-help about_Execution_Policies.

Q: How to add my module to the directory?
