PowerShell HelpWriter

PowerShell HelpWriter is a premier editor for Windows PowerShell XML help files. Create and edit help files for all command types, including cmdlets, functions, workflows, and CIM commands. Focus on your content and let PowerShell HelpWriter worry about the XML. PowerShell HelpWriter analyzes your module and generates starter help files that match the cmdlet code and converts existing comment-based help. Exports your PowerShell help to HTML or markdown at the press of a button. Write help for a module before the code is written as a code specification. Once the help is written, use PowerShell Studio’s New Module from Help File feature to automatically generate the module’s code.
