Even better then Console2

about ConEmu and Console · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I used to use Console2 in Windows, but came across ConEmu while looking for alternatives because development on Console2 is extremely slow, if the project has not been completely abandoned. From the moment I installed it I was impressed and can't imagine a better console emulator.

Very reliable; customizeable and integrates well with Windows taskbar (progress bar, and jumplists).

Works amazingly with Bash for Windows 10. It's like using a proper Linux terminal emulator. I LOVE this software.

9/10, probably the best thing that happened to Windows CLI

This overlay makes the Windows console actually bearable and useful, not mentioning the eye-candiness. ANSI, tabs, custom environment variables, autocomplete, logging, and tons of other features, absolute must-have for any more advanced Windows user, or for anyone who uses many CLI programs on daily basis. Briliant piece of software.

Excellent software

It "just works". The automatic in-app updating is supremely well implemented and frustration free.

Highly recommenced!

Once you start using ConEmu with FAR2/FAR3 for complex development tasks or just simple file management on recent Windows versions there is absolutely no going back, nor is there even the thought of going back. Cannot live without this anymore and been closely following it for a (very) long time now. Fifteen thumbs up for this beautiful software gem that makes everyday work so much more powerful and enjoyable.

Zero learning queue but wonderful

Install Far. Install ConEmu. Open ConEmu. Press CTRL+O, WIN+W. Click right mouse button there and there. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Look to right top corner menu. Cool. Can do several consoles into one window.

Best console emulator by far

about ConEmu · · Helpful Not helpful

Steep learning curve but it is the ultimate console emulator with vast range of capabilities when used in my case for Linux and Rails development on a windows machine.

Tabbed and split console windows, "clink" read ahead buffers offering linux style tab file and folder expansion(huge time saver), ANSI color schemes on a Console window, without needing Ansicon!! Superior console font selection with cleartype so you can go small and clear. I can run git bash, rspec and pry with color, as well as vim, putty and normal cmd.exe running in a well managed space, Conemu also offers potential to hold other GUI apps like Sublime text and the potential to offer terminal windows within other apps so you can have the benefits of a superior terminal console. Can also be run with Take Command (another superior windows console) or even Powershell. Good thing is that it is actively developed with releases every week or so
