Turn any looping .ps1 script into a Windows Service With the help of the included Sorlov Assemblies (https://twitter.com/sorlov/status/515149451691044864).
THANK YOU DANIEL SORLOV!
To install this module, simply run:
Install-Module -Name ScriptAsService
For an example of how to use the module, clone the project locally and open an elevated PowerShell Prompt in the cloned folder (or
cd into the cloned folder once you've opened PowerShell):
This will create an executable, install it as a service, and verify the output. Essentially, the service will just write the current time to a log file every ten seconds.
To clean up after the example, run the following from the same prompt:
Build Locally From Source
Once you've cloned this project, open a PowerShell prompt and set the root folder of this project as your current directory. Then:
Invoke-Psake -buildFile .\psake.ps1 -taskList Build
This will build a folder,
ScriptAsService in the current directory. In that folder is a versioned folder containing the module. You should be able to copy this folder to your Module Path if you want, or import the module via path.
