I used to have all my common functions stored as separate scripts in a single folder. I’d load these through a few lines of code in my profile, looping through the script files and dot-sourcing them. Powershell v2.0 has a new feature called Modules. So how do you convert a bunch of scripts (containing functions) into a single module you can load or unload whenever you feel you might need those functions?
# Convert function scripts to Module #Variables $myModuleName = "myModule123" $inputFolder = 'D:\scripts\Functions' $outputFolder = "$PSHOME\Modules\$myModuleName" #Create the module directory $null = New-Item $outputFolder -ItemType directory #Create the module with a nice oneliner Get-ChildItem $inputFolder -Filter "*.ps1" | Get-Content | Out-File "$outputFolder\$myModuleName.psm1" -Append #Import the module Import-Module $myModuleName #Show functions loaded from the module Get-Command -Module $myModuleName
