I’ve come across a number of modules over the last few months that may be of interest. In no particular order:

PSDEPLOY – https://github.com/RamblingCookieMonster/PSDeploy

A module to simplify PowerShell based deployments

PLASTER – https://github.com/PowerShell/Plaster

A template based artifact generator – streamlines creation of PowerShell module projects, pester tests, DSC configurations etc

OPERATION VALIDATION FRAMEWORK –https://github.com/PowerShell/Operation-Validation-Framework

Tools for executing validation of the operation of a system. Organises and executes Pester tests to validate operation

LABILITY – https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Lability/0.9.8

Provisioning Hyper-V test lab and development environments

PSAKE  – https://github.com/psake/psake

Build automation

POSHSPEC – https://github.com/Ticketmaster/poshspec

Infrastructure testing DSL. Expanding Pester to test infrastructure

Some of these projects are just starting while others are more mature.

They may not do exactly what you want but they may give you some ideas. All of these are well worth a look
