Our library includes the data from Microsoft’s PowerShell documentation as well as many of the modules found in the PowerShell Gallery. If you’ve written a module for the gallery, and your module includes valid XML help files, it might appear in PowerShell Reference, too. (If you need help writing help, be sure to check out PowerShell HelpWriter!)

We run an updater once a quarter unless more frequency is needed, so check back often for added modules.

And, be sure to let us know if you like PowerShell Reference, including requests for help for particular modules.
