Shells to be used:
All of the above are managed through one shell manager - ConEmu.
First install all the shells, then ConEmu.
Easy installation of useful dev tools
Use scoop to install basic utilities and languages. Install from powershell (without admin rights):
Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -scope CurrentUser iex (new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('https://get.scoop.sh')
scoop export you can get an importable list of all installed packages.
Here’s mine currently: scoop-export.txt.
Tweaks to shells
To get auto-completion support similar to what you get in bash, install clink.
Win + Alt + P to open Properties.
Startup -> Tasks and set shortcuts for
shells you’ll be using.
Alt + Cfor cmd.exe
Alt + Shift + Cfor elevated cmd.exe
Alt + Wfor MINGW from git
Alt + Yfor Cygwin
The full config is here, can be imported at installation time.
Basic packages to install throught setup.exe:
There is little known package manager that can be used from inside cygwin without having to run setup.exe all the time: apt-cyg.
lynx -source rawgit.com/transcode-open/apt-cyg/master/apt-cyg > apt-cyg install apt-cyg /bin
