The main idea behind PowerShell CodeManager is to make the
reuse of code as easy and convenient as possible. The longer you are in coding, the more likely it is, that at some point in the past you did already code the stuff you need again right now.
But where was that? How did you name that script again? CodeManager will find it. You can search inside all of your scripts in a matter of seconds and find what you are looking for. And the moment you find it, it’s already in your clipboard, ready to be used again.
If you want to go a step further and make the whole process even more convenient and the code easier to reuse, you can create snippets. CodeManager is based on an award winning PowerGui snippet add-on and provides all the tools you need for that. CodeManager also helps you presenting and documenting your scripts or exploring the code of others, by creating an interactive function dependency graph, of a single function or a complete script.
CodeManager can also directly execute scripts and lets you quickly change or add command line parameters and user context. Its free and itself completely written in PowerShell.

Powershell v4 or v5 is recommended for this version (6.x) of CodeManager and PowerShell v3 is necessary. CodeManager has been tested on Windows 7, 8.1, 10, Server 2016, 2012 and 2008 R2, but should run fine on any other Windows version where at least Powershell V3 can be installed.
