A Better and Improved Command Line for Windows

If you are a Windows-machine owner, you might have realized that the built-in command prompt is not ideal for developing Ruby on Rails applications and full-stack JavaScript applications.

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.
