While updating this blog to use dp.SyntaxHighlighter, I realized I needed a brush for my powershell examples.  Using some of the other brush scripts as examples, I came up with the script attached to this post.

I used the one-liner posted on Oisin Grehan's blog to slurp out all of the keywords recognized by powershell.  I also added a list of available cmdlets and aliases available as of CTP3 using get-command and get-alias.

The brush is triggered by any of the following marker "aliases" on a code block:

  • ps
  • ps1
  • powershell
  • msh
