Documentation

Basic usage

There are 2 ways to input your script:

1. Uses script set in Line options:

[PSRM]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = PowershellRM
Line = Get-Process |
Line2 = Where-Object {$_.ProcessName -eq "explorer"} |
Line3 = Select -ExpandProperty "Path"
Last output object will be this measure value.

2. Uses a PowerShell script file

[PSRM]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = PowershellRM
ScriptFile = myScript.ps1
In this script file, you need to define function Update with no parameter. Update function is called every time skin updating and whatever it returning will be this measure value.
