I have a Windows PC, and I admit it is not an out-of-the-box programmer friendly piece of hardware as Mac is. But for the price, how can one complain? In fact, until the Intermediate course I had none. In Intro, I had to download GitBASH and Sublime. But the GIT terminal and my Text Editor were the only software I needed and even used.
In class Stu showed me the program named ConEmu, a terminal which solved a lot of these issues. (has GIT, UNIX, and Node commands installed as one neat package.) I did some more research and found a ConEmu fork that is injected with steroids, in what is known as CMDER. It’s prettier, quick, customizable and seamless to use. One download and you have everything you need for class in one console terminal. For PC Users it is the closest thing to what i assume iTerm is like on Mac. Here is a video of the benefits and tricks with is and a link to Download.
