   * Manual Method:
   * download the zip of this repo https://github.com/FOGProject/fog-community-scripts/archive/master.zip and extract it
       * Or clone the repo using your favorite git tool, you just need the FogApi Folder this readme is in

       * For Mac Powershell v6+ (untested)
           * /usr/local/microsoft/powershell/6.x/Modules
               * 6.x should be replaced with whatever most current version you are using
               * I haven't tested this on a mac, the module folder may be somewhere else
               this is based on where it is in other powershell 6 installs
   * Open a powershell command prompt (I always run as admin, unsure if it's required)
   * Run Import-Module FogApi

   The first time you try to run a command the settings.json file will automatically open
   in notepad on windows, nano on linux, or TextEdit on Mac
   You can also open the settings.json file and edit it manually before running your first command.
   The default settings are explanations of where to find the proper settings since json can't have comments

   Once the settings are set you can have a jolly good time utilzing the fog documentation
   found here https://news.fogproject.org/simplified-api-documentation/ that was used to model the parameters

   i.e.

   Get-FogObject has a type param that validates to object, objectactivetasktype,
   and search as those are the options given in the documentation.
   Each of those types validates (which means autocompletion) to the core types listed in the documentation.
   So if you typed in Get-FogObject -Type object -Object  h and then started hitting tab,
   it would loop through the possible core objects you can get from the api that start with 'h' such as history, host, etc.

   Unless you filter a get with a json body it will return all the results into a powershell object.
   That object is easy to work with to create other commands. Note: Full Pipeline support will come at a later time
    i.e.

    hosts = Get-FogObject -Type Object -CoreObject Host # calls get on http://fog-server/fog/host to list all hosts
    Now you can search all your hosts for the one or ones you're looking for with powershell
    maybe you want to find all the hosts with 'IT' in the name  (note '?' is an alias for Where-Object)
   ITHosts = hosts.hosts | ? name -match 'IT';

update update function to allow specifying uri path manually

           Fixed parantheses typo in get-fogobject and signing issue
       v 1.5
           - Added dynamic parameters and added get-fogserversettings and set-fogserversettings to allow for setting the api keys and server name in the shell
               One known issue with the dynamic parameters is that they currently are not working as expected with positions they have to be named. i.e. you have to say get-fogobject -type object -coreObject host not Get-FogObject object host like I wanted
               The auto complete works for positional parameters but the function doesn't seem to think there's a vaule for the parameter.
       v 1.3 -
           added better description and links, fixed new-fogobject to not require id for all POST api calls as there is no id yet for new items.
       v 1.2
                   - Initial Release, allow for easy manipulation of FOG server data with powershell objects'
