NexuShell is a PowerShell module for the Sonatype Nexus Repository Server API. Each function inside of the module links back to its corresponding page here on the docs site.

What is Sonatype Nexus

Sonatype Nexus is a Repository Server that exists in two flavors. Open Source (Sonatype Nexus OSS), and Pro (Sonatype Nexus Pro). The open-source version of Sonatype Nexus is extremely feature rich, providing you almost all of the functionality of the Pro edition. It only lacks things like Azure Blob Storage availability for use in Blob Stores, High Availability, and Blob Store migrations, and a Support contract.
