G
I'll take partial responsibility. I worked with @
I worked with @sneddo to get it setup for the vCheck repo as a place to have general conversation about changes, etc.
(Phone was being weird which caused the garbled text)

So one thing I have been thinking ability for a while is the ability to have subdirectories with products that are being checked, at the moment we have a repo for sphere, one for scam, one for exchange etc and only the sphere one is getting core development (above plugins) what do you think if the first time you ran check it said I know how to check the following things..... sphere, exchange etc and then you chose one of these options and it store it unless you ran the config again?

Hi everyone.
First of all, this script framework is great. I contributed two plugins a few weeks ago, and am looking for ways to contribute (and learn) more. With that said, I wish there was a way in the report to classify/order things by "category" i.e. have the subsections show in the report (vCenter, Storage, Network, VMs, etc...) - and to find a better way to sort things out than using the current numbering system for plugins, since the numbering doesn't follow any logic (that I can see). i.e. I would prefer to order scripts in each category so that it makes sense somewhat, and would allow the user to use that to sort the information in the order he wants

@alanrenouf I was thinking of something similar. Overall, I was looking into making thing even more modular, potentially even turning vCheck into a module, itself, so it can be distributed via PowerShell Gallery, PowerShell Get, etc. But with that would be the ability to pick and choose what you wanted to check, etc.

Not familiar with PS Gallery / Get :) But any evolution is a positive thing.

Yeah, one of my goals was to consolidate the various vCheck repos into one (or, a vCheck repo, and submodules for the various plugin applications). Hey, @alanrenouf how about adding @vScripter as a contributor to the project? He's already proving to be a great help...
