Can we share our files on GitHub ?

Post by Chrisk » Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:27 am

Hello,
just a general question about PowershellStudio, i know that there is informations encoded in files of a project, and i wanted to know if it's secure to share our files on a plateform like GitHub.
I mean there is no license information or other in files of our project ? (.psproj, .ps1, .psf, .pss)

Thx for your time
Chris.

Yes, it is perfectly fine to share your projects files on GitHub. Your license information is not stored in project files. But I highly recommend removing any sensitive information, such as the alternate credentials in the packager settings.

If you just wish to just share the exported / generated script, then be aware that it may contain recover information. You can disable this feature in the options:

Options->Designer->Export->Embed recovery data in exported scripts

The recover data allows a user to reconstruct the project or file from the exported script.
