Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Apparently one of the main themes of NetBeans 6.0 is going to be support for scripting languages (yet another indication of the industry wide ascendency of Scripting. It is a VERY good time to embrace scripting or "learn PowerShell and increase your integrated lifetime earnings" J). HERE is a blog entry of someone that added PowerShell support to NetBeans. Good stuff!
It is awesome to see all the IDEs that now support PowerShell. I look forward to the day when I can tell you that if you want a great PowerShell IDE you can use Visual Studio. J

I am the one who is implementing PowerShell support in NetBeans 6.0. I blogged about it
To enhance the support I need a definitive grammar for Powershell. I have already tried:
Does not seem to be complete. Can anyone point me to the definitive grammar? Either leave the info here or add a comment to my blog.
Is getting PowerShell integrated into Orcas or a future Visual Studio something that the team is seriously pursuing?
Here's one way to get a great VS integrated cmdlet development experience that lets you build, debug, + test cmdlets totally under the IDE: http://blogs.msdn.com/jmstall/archive/2007/03/04/debugging-cmdlets.aspx
You can use all the good stuff like intellisense, wizards for creating new cmdlets, Edit-and-continue, Just-my-code, etc.
This builds on a great tutorial from David Aiken at http://blogs.msdn.com/daiken/archive/2007/02/07/creating-a-windows-powershell-cmdlet-using-the-visual-studio-windows-powershell-templates.aspx
This integration is for writing PowerShell CmdLets in a .NET language, correct? What about writing scripts? Are there plans to support PowerShell script in Visual Studio (either 2005 or 2008)? Is anyone working on this that you know of?
