PowershellGallery - Preview module cmdlet examples

Hello,

Many PowershellGallery modules's description is just one line that make us difficult to chose among the similar modules.

For example, I searched the keyword log, and I got many write-log modules.

I need to download each one of them to test the differences.

It would be better to preview the cmdlets' examples directly on the web site or provided by find-module.

And if possible, it would be even better to be able to upload some GIF photos to the web site to show the cmdlets' power dynamically just like vscode extensions.

Thx.

    First, thanks for asking, we really do appreciate the feedback.
    We have investigated doing this before, and it turns out to be complex.

    While it’s been done, it’s not common for a reason. Some of the issues involve creating a service that is effectively a sandbox designed to run a huge variety of cmdlets, while ensuring that it cannot become a DOS attack vector for the service as a whole.

    Rather than leave the request open, we are marking it as “declined” for now.
