PowerShell Core is a cross-platform for Windows, Linux, and macOS available command line shell and scripting language from Microsoft.


PowerShell is optimized for dealing with structured data (e.g. JSON, CSV, XML, etc.), REST APIs, and object models.

These include:

  • consistent structure for the commands (Verb-Noun)
  • consistent syntax
  • completely object-based pipeline
  • remoting


PowerShell Core is not provided by official openSUSE repositories. You can deploy PowerShell binaries directly using the Linux tar.gz archive, but you would need to set up the necessary dependencies first.
