Packaging

Ever wanted to package up items and files without opening the Sitecore Package Designer each time? There are a number of commands available for generating packages.

Package Creation

Example: The following example demonstrates how to generate a package.

$package = New-Package "Package-of-Stuff"
$package.Sources.Clear()

$package.Metadata.Author = "Michael West"
$package.Metadata.Publisher = "Team Awesome"
$package.Metadata.Version = "1.0"
$package.Metadata.Readme = @"
Set of instructions for the user.
"@

# Items using New-ItemSource and New-ExplicitItemSource
$source = Get-Item -Path "master:\templates\Feature\Forms" | 
    New-ItemSource -Name 'Feature Forms Items' -InstallMode Overwrite $package.Sources.Add($source)
$package.Sources.Add($source)

# Files using New-FileSource and New-ExplicitFileSource
$source = Get-Item -Path "$AppPath\App_Config\Include\Feature\Forms\Company.Feature.Forms.config" | 
    New-ExplicitFileSource -Name "Feature Forms Files"
$package.Sources.Add($source)

Export-Package -Project $package -Path "$($package.Name)-$($package.Metadata.Version).xml"
Export-Package -Project $package -Path "$($package.Name)-$($package.Metadata.Version).zip" -Zip
Download-File "$SitecorePackageFolder\$($package.Name)-$($package.Metadata.Version).zip"

Post Step

Example: The following adds a Post Step and custom attributes.

$package = New-Package "Package-of-Stuff"
$package.Sources.Clear()

$package.Metadata.Author = "Michael West"
$package.Metadata.Publisher = "Team Awesome"
$package.Metadata.Version = "1.0"
$package.Metadata.Readme = @"
Set of instructions for the user.
"@
$package.Metadata.PostStep = "Some.Library.Class,Some.Library"
$package.Metadata.Attributes = "scriptId={9b9a3906-1979-11e7-8c9d-177c30471cec}|width=50|height=200"

Export-Package -Project $package -Path "$($package.Name)-$($package.Metadata.Version).xml"
