  1. Set the PowerShell Gallery up for Twitter Cards

    When posting a link to a GitHub repo on Twitter, the URL is generally replaced with a Twitter summary card. This is not the case, currently, when posting links to items on the Gallery. The display of cards makes these links stand out more and (should) help with social sharing of PowerShell content.

  2. Provide means to qualify Script names to avoid conflicts

    Hello!

    The PowerShell Gallery currently qualifies 'Scripts' by name only. For example, if someone has already published Some-Script, I have no way to publish my own Some-Script, even if the original is related only in name, has major functional differences, etc.

    It would be helpful to allow qualifying these. Perhaps resolve by date published first (i.e. compatible with current system), while allowing qualification by username, similar to how GitHub handles this.

    Thus, I could install RamblingCookieMonster\Some-Script, even if EvilDoer\Some-Script already existed.

    The same design could also be extended to modules, although those seem less likely to conflict (this may change…

  3. Badges for PowerShell Gallery counts to be used on a GitHub page

    GitHub and npm have badges that can be placed on your repo or elsewhere that can display stats about aspects of your project.

    It'd be great to be able to put a badge on a repo showing stats about the published item to PowerShell Gallery, like, number of downloads.

    Interesting concept. If you could do us a favor and send a pointer to a specific example, it would be helpful for us.

  4. Show Module size in properties on PowerShellGallery.com

    I would like to know how big a module is before downloading it.

  5. Improve UX for module / script listing status

    Right now, the UX for enabling / disabling the listing status for PowerShell modules and scripts is a bit challenging, if you have many versions. Could we improve upon this somehow, to enable batch enable / disable of module / script versions?

  6. Allow for publishing Profile Paths with Spaces

    when using publish module if a user has a space in their profile it fails to publish the module:
    PS C:> Publish-Module -Tags Twitter -Name Posh-Tweet -NuGetApiKey xxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx -Verbose
    VERBOSE: The specified assembly 'C:\Users\Carlos Perez\AppData\Local\PackageManagement\ProviderAssemblies\nuget-anycpu.exe' is installed at top level directory. However it is recommended that the assemblies should be installed under its ProviderName\Version folder.
    VERBOSE: Skipping previously processed provider 'NuGet'.
    VERBOSE: Repository details, Name = 'PSGallery', Location = 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/'; IsTrusted = 'False'; IsRegistered = 'True'.
    VERBOSE: Repository details, Name = 'PSGallery', Location = 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/'; IsTrusted = 'False'; IsRegistered = 'True'.
    VERBOSE: Publish Location:'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/package/'. …

  7. Make PowerShell Gallery module files and scripts searchable

    Now that you can view file contents in the Gallery website, it would be very useful if you would expand the search feature such that it searches the contents of scripts and files inside of modules. This would allow users to search for a specific command or a .NET class or method, which will help discover Gallery items that exist that solve a particular problem someone is trying to solve. It will also help authors discover when something they might want to create has already been created without having to guess module names or script names. The results should show…

  8. Simply copying code from PowerShell Gallery - Copy to Clipboard button

    Currently to copy code from the PowerShell all text has to be manually selected using the mouse and then copied. In order to simplify this a button to either copy or select all the code on the current page would improve the user experience.
