Babun Shell

I want to point out a tool I cannot live without anymore on Windows. It is called Babun and is based on Cygwin.

Like Cygwin it brings basic POSIX commands and some features found in any Linux distribution to Windows. So what’s special about Babun? Here is a non-exhaustive list of its key features:

  • Preconfigured and ready to run
  • easy GIT integration
  • Features a package manager
  • nice visual features like syntax highlighting
  • Automatic updates

A lot more features can be checked out on their website http://babun.github.io/
