Bundle DSC Waves for Pull Server Distribution

This assumes you have WinRar installed to the default path, this will also delete the source files after it creates the zip files.

After running this script copy the resulting files to the DSC server in the following location: "C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\DscService\Modules"

$modpath = "-path to dsc wave-"
$output = "-path to save wave to-"
[regex]$reg = "([0-9\.]{3,12})"
if((Test-Path $output) -ne $true){ New-Item -Path $output -ItemType Directory -Force }
foreach($module in (Get-ChildItem -Path $modpath)) {
    $psd1 = ($module.FullName+"\"+$module+".psd1")
    $content = Get-Content $psd1
    foreach($line in $content) {
        if($line.Contains("ModuleVersion")) {
            $outpath = $output+"\"+$module.Name+"_"+($reg.Match($line).Captures)
            Write-Host ""
            if(Test-Path -Path $outpath) {
                Copy-Item -Path $module.FullName -Destination $outpath -Recurse
                New-Item -Path $outpath -ItemType Directory -Force
                Copy-Item -Path $module.FullName -Destination $outpath -Recurse
            & "C:\Program Files\WinRar\winrar.exe" a -afzip -df -ep1 ($outpath+".zip") $outpath
