There is now ConEmu, another console replacement but more configurable and actively maintained than Console. As for bash-style completion, recent builds of ConEmu integrate with Clink.

ConEmu - The Windows Terminal/Console/Prompt we’ve been waiting for? - Scott Hanselman Jakub Gutkowski | Jakub Gutkowski - Papa Console2, Witam z ukłonami ConEmu

Setup with /Min switch to start minimized: Command_Line - conemu-maximus5

Task lines:

- Task name: PowerShell

    Commands: `%SystemRoot%\syswow64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe`

- Task name: GIT Bash
    Task Parameters: `/icon "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\etc\git.ico"`
    Commands: `C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe /k RenameTab "Git Bash" && """C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i""`

- Bash from Vagrant: c:\vagrant\embedded\bin\bash.exe
- Mintty: c:\vagrant\embedded\bin\mintty.exe

How do I give each tab a custom name? Git Bash Here in ConEmu

Clink features

Install CLink from EXE file, and don’t use it from ConEmu option. I had some strange problems when not doing it this way.

Bringing Bash powerful command line editing to Windows

- Improved command line history that persists across sessions.
- Searchable (Ctrl-R and Ctrl-S)
- Traditional Bash clear screen (Ctrl-L) and exit shortcuts (Ctrl-D).
- Scrollable command window using PgUp/PgDown keys.
- Paste from clipboard (Ctrl-V or R-Click)

Easy integration with ConEmu. History is stored in a file "%LocalAppData%"/clink/.history


mintty - Terminal window for Cygwin and MSYS

Ships with Vagrant: c:\vagrant\embedded\bin\mintty.exe

Some extras

Nano is my favorite simple editor on Linux. You can get it for Windows. And, I will put it anywhere where my path points to.

Add path to Putty to system:

setx PATH "%PATH%" /m

Check it’s working:

Microsoft microsoft/terminal: The new Windows Terminal and the original Windows console host, all in the same place!

Tabby is a a terminal with repo at Eugeny/tabby is mostly JavaScript and it used to be called Eugeny/terminus and installable with scoop install tabby, koji pogađa baš opcije koje mene interesuju kao što je optional global hotkey to focus/hide the terminal and that remembers open tabs and panes where you left off. Sve radi savršeno, osim što se pokreće dosta dugo, ali to možda i nije problem jer ga samo pri bootu pokrećem uopšte. Posledica toga što je pisan u JavaScript je što postoji i Web verzija, što je prosto nestvarno.

Kitty is GPU based terminal written in a mix of C and Python for hackability of the UI and that does not depend on any UI toolkit using only OpenGL for rendering everything, at repo kovidgoyal/kitty, but it doesn’t support Windows.

Hotkey: LGUG2Z/whkd: A simple hotkey daemon for Windows Nikako dobro ne radi ako ga poredim sa AHK

  1. Tmux i Zellij pravilno rade samo u SSH ali ne u Mosh (mosh radi ligature sa wizterm ali ne i miš)
  2. Allacritty je stvarno brz (najbrži po meni ipak), ali nema tabs i nema one lepe fontove (Ligatures)
  3. Windows Terminal ima sve, a ima i ligature, samo instaliraj PL fontove. Ima i neki Atlas engine koji ga čini brzim. Samo ga jebe onaj shortcut ali to sam inače uradio preko AHK. Inače, ugrađeni hotkey nije uvek reagovao kako treba a AHK je perfektan.
  4. Wizterm radi i ligature iz prve, ali nije brz koliko god pričaju da jeste 5.

Add to Startup

Add non-elevated normal app at startup, just create a symbolic link:

$StartUp="$Env:APPDATA/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup"
$Title="Terminal Toggle"
New-Item -ItemType SymbolicLink -Path "$StartUp" -Name "$Title.lnk" -Value "$App"

Add elevated at startup:

$App = """$(scoop prefix autohotkey)\UX\AutoHotkeyUX.exe"""
$Name = "Windows Terminal Autohotkey"
$Action = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute "$App" -Argument """%HOMEPATH%/.ahk/terminal-toggle.ahk"""

$Trigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtLogon
$Principal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserID "$env:USERDOMAIN\$env:USERNAME" -LogonType ServiceAccount -RunLevel Highest
$Settings = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -AllowStartIfOnBatteries -DontStopIfGoingOnBatteries -DontStopOnIdleEnd
$Task = New-ScheduledTask -Action $Action -Trigger $Trigger -Settings $Settings -Principal $Principal
Register-ScheduledTask -TaskName "$Name" -InputObject $Task -Force

Start Terminal at Startup Elevated:

$App = "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\WindowsApps\wt.exe"
$Name = "Windows Terminal Autorun"

$Action = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute "$App"
$Trigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtLogon
$Principal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserID "$env:USERDOMAIN\$env:USERNAME" -LogonType ServiceAccount -RunLevel Highest
$Settings = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -AllowStartIfOnBatteries -DontStopIfGoingOnBatteries -DontStopOnIdleEnd
$Task = New-ScheduledTask -Action $Action -Trigger $Trigger -Settings $Settings -Principal $Principal
Register-ScheduledTask -TaskName "$Name" -InputObject $Task -Force

To test created scheduled task, run:

Start-ScheduledTask -TaskName "Windows Terminal Autorun"
Start-ScheduledTask -TaskName "Windows Terminal Autohotkey"

Why doesn’t WezTerm get any attention? (compared to Kitty & Alacritty) : linux

WezTerm is too slow. I do like the lua config design of Wez, but I just can not stand it being so slow.

The most useful feature is the ability to persist remote sessions. That means one can connect to a remote computer, open different panes and tabs, work within them, close WezTerm and when one opens the terminal again, perhaps on another computer, everything is resumed as left, running processes and all. I’d like to find in the future the possibility to synchronize the keyboard input between panes. Bravo, WezTerm!

Windows Terminal has it.

Terminal shortcut works like shit!

  • ne želim da na Alt-Tab imam i njega.
  • Svugde da rati Ctrl-~ ili ctrl-Esc

2. napeavi onaj vscode shortcut za select and then search, i stavi ga na f3, ali detektuj da li je Find File otvoren

3. windows - kada je prozor otvoren na ekanu stavljen na edge, da se ne ponaša na ivicama kao da je floating i da ne prikazuje strelice za resize.

Mislim da ne može, ali pitaj. do not change cursor in windows when windows is on edge, but not maximized
