Summary: Using New-Alias to create easier to remember shortcuts to Cmdlets in PowerShell
Hey, Doctor Scripto. I know I can use Install-Module to download a DSC Resource, but is there some way to build a Cmdlet that does the Exact same job but call it Install-DSCResource? I would find that easier to remember when getting them (DSCResources).
We can’t create a new Cmdlet, but we can create an Alias. It will respond to all the same parameters as the original. To make an Alias of Install-Module that says Install-DSCResource just execute the following line.
New-Alias -Name Install-DSCResource -value Install-Module -description ‘Alias for Install-Module’
