PowerShell is a widely used administration tool in Windows Server workloads. This project aims at porting it to FreeBSD in order to make it easier and faster for Windows Server professionals to start working on FreeBSD server workloads and to make available yet another shell choice which is friendly for new-coming Windows users. In order to achieve that, however, porting the .NET Core SDK toolchain, including CoreCLR, CoreFX and the CLI itself, is necessary once they are vital PowerShell dependencies. As a result, FreeBSD users should have access to PowerShell, an object-oriented shell to interact with the system, and .NET Core, which can be useful for developers to build and run their applications on FreeBSD personal and server machines.
