Multi-threading Maven builds with PowerShell Jobs and a .NET Queue


I was recently given a copy of the script used on our Jenkins server to deploy our Java code base.  My boss wanted to get it working so devs could have a script to compile code on their local sandboxes, rather than wait for the next Jenkins run.  Honestly, I think I spent more time […]

Get Operating System Name (Linux / UNIX / Windows) Using PowerShell


As I manage Oracle and SQL Server databases on both Linux and Windows, I sometimes need to determine the OS type before I work with the host so that I can do things conditionally in PowerShell. I looked around the Web and could not find a good example of how to get this information except […]

Updating JavaScript viewmodels using PowerShell cmdlets in Office 365


via Updating JavaScript viewmodels using PowerShell cmdlets in Office 365.

Earlier this week I added a blogpost about my experiences with the Office Dev PnP PowerShell cmdlets by Erwin van Hunen. These posts about the Office Dev PnP PowerShell cmdlets are probably going to be a blog series, but I’ll see how that works out. The first blog was a more general blog about the Office Dev PnP PowerShell cmdlets, but now I will zoom in more into a specific use case. This time it’s time to blog about working with view models!

The great thing about working with view models is that you can add a content editor webpart to a page and link that content editor webpart to a viewmodel HTML-file you upload to (a directory in) the style library.  For a recent deployment I even automated adding the webparts to the pages, but I’ll cover that in a next blog.
