Chain Commands in Package Manager Console and PowerShell

So its late, I am in a hurry and am very hungry. I needed this to be quick.

You can actually “Chain” or have sequential commands in one line using PowerShell. To do this use a semicolon “;” in each statement or command.

What it does is execute each statement or command then brings back the cursor to you after the last command was executed.

Since Package Manager Console uses PowerShell. In fact, a simple get-command will display a long list of commands and modules (As I demonstrate… a long list, not a good idea without any filters on get-command on a development computer).

So using PowerShell’s Sub expressions, you can also chain your commands like enabling the migration and then adding an initial migration then finally update the database on one command inside package manager console.

It’s the little things.
