A Better and Improved Command Line for Windows
After spending a good amount of time researching this subject, I found that cmder is the BEST alternative to the Windows command prompt. Cmder is a “portable console emulator for Windows” and has tons of benefits that will make your life as a developer easier. For instance:
- You get bash emulation
- It gives you full access to ALL Unix commands
- It’s free!
- It runs off a USB stick — meaning that you can run it from anywhere!
- It provides a beautiful and user-friendly interface out-of-the-box!
This tool will help you hate Windows a bit less and possibly postpone the inevitable … buying a Mac.
