Last week, our servers running http://powertheshell.com in the US died on us. That was a rather unpleasant surprise: our servers hosted the ISESteroids documentation and a lot of resources that built up during the past 10 years.
Well, there seems to be no way for us to recover the data, so we decided to look forward and create a completely new and fresh web site for you. Currently you can see our efforts evolve so please come back often to see the site unfold.
Static Website Generator
We decided to move away from database-driven websites, and abandoned our wordpress environment. Instead, we move to static site generators and github. We’ll probably need a couple of days to completely wrap our heads around the new techniques but I believe it is well worth the effort.
New Name: powershell.one
It was long planned to rename our domain from powertheshell.com to powershell.one, so now is the perfect time to do so. powershell.one is not just a reminiscence to “.ps1”, our favorite file extension, but also takes into account the cross-platform nature of PowerShell.
So in the near future, powershell.one will not just deal with ISESteroids but cover in-depth information about the entire PowerShell ecosystem including valuable tips from the field, community events such as the PowerShell Conference EU and anything a PowerShell passionate would like to know.
ISESteroids Future Steps
We’re now excited to re-create an up-to-date ISESteroids documentation. Moving forward, we also have much more powerful options to get in touch with you. Once everything is in place, we’re curious to discuss with you future steps like making part of the feature set available in stand-alone modules that can be used from any PowerShell environment including VSCode.
For the moment, if you have an urgent question about ISESteroids, please feel free to contact us. We’ll do our best to get your questions answered until the full ISESteroids documentation is back online.
