The next version of UD will include an updated version of Poshud.com. It’s the same dashboard that comes up when you run Start-UDDashboard without any parameters.
One of the neat things with the new version of PoshUD will be that the UI Components tab will be generated based on the cmdlet help in the module.
If you click on the component, it will run Get-Help to get all the descriptions, examples and parameter and then generate a page based on that data.
The Edit on GitHub link will take you to the markdown file that is on GitHub.
Examples will run in the browser.
You’ll be able to click the code tab to view the code for that example.
A table of all the parameter help will be at the bottom of each page.
What can you do to help out?
The cmdlet help is pretty gnarly at best. The examples mostly don’t work. What I’m looking to do is get some good, functional examples for each cmdlet that produces a control so that it’s way easier for people to find cool stuff in UD.
