I ask the maintainer of org-babel Bastien Guerry <http://bzg.fr>, if it is possible to include Powershell support for org-babel. Monsieur Guerry told me to ask you via email.

Powershell 5.1 is now an important tool for Infrastructure as Code in the Windows Server world. Windows administrator often encounter mixed IT Landscape with Windows and Linux servers. While it is possible to do network automation with Python with org-babel for the Linux server - you still cannot do Literate Programming in Powershell for Windows server.

I think Literate Programming is a very productive idea for system administration. It is very difficult to establish a Living Documentation policy with Powershell, because of the lack of Literate Programming tools with Powershell support. Currently available Powershell support for Powershell is limited to syntax highlighting and external execution of Powershell commands from code fences. The results of execution of Powershell code snippets is not shown within the Emacs buffer.

With Powershell 7 we got now a cross-platform scripting language for Windows and Linux OS. I think in the future Powershell administration will get more and more important - not only for deployment, but also for cyber security defense of Windows server.
Yours sincerely

> Bonjour Monsieur,
> Do you plan to include Powershell in org-babel ?
> Powershell is an important scripting languages for administration of Windows servers. I like to write installation scripts with the literate programming paradigm, but I cannot find a good tool - org-babel already supports Python, which is very important for network automation. It will be a perfect match, if it will be possible to write Python and Powershell in the same org-babel file.
