The Windows PowerShell Command Builder for Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Office 365 is an HTML5 application that is designed to help IT professionals and power users learn how to use Windows PowerShell for administrative tasks.

You can find the Windows PowerShell for Sharepoint Command Builder here:

Choose the product that you want to create PowerShell commands for - in this example SharePoint Online.
You have option to choose one of the following products:

  • SharePoint Online
  • SharePoint Foundation 2013

Once you have selected a product from the product list, you can drag and drop 1 verb and 1 noun from available lists on the left, to the designated area on the right.

In this example I choose "Get" as my verb and "Site" as noun:

Based on Verb and Noun that you choose, tool will present the additional parameters that you can configure for the command which will appear in "Required" and "Optional" panes.

At the end you can grab the final command from the information box on the bottom left of the page. in this example the generated command is as follows:
