Hi All,

I just started creating my custom modules that I'm planning to deploy.

What is your best custom practice for getting the latest code?

I was thinking along the lines of getting the the hash of the master file and if it does't match my copy, to update it

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

You're meant to provide a manifest that includes a version. That way you can simply check the version, and even have scripts define a specific version dependency, if desired. Ideally, you'd have your module in a repo that PowerShellGet can access, so you can easily check the repo version and update if needed.

However, checking a file hash is an approach that would probably work.

Don, i'll start looking at the manifest option.

Thanks.
