Git Bash Alternatives

    Git Bash is described as 'Git for Windows provides a BASH emulation used to run Git from the command line. *NIX users should feel right at home, as the BASH emulation behaves just like the "git" command in LINUX and UNIX environments' and is an app in the OS & Utilities category. There are nine alternatives to Git Bash for Windows, Linux, Mac and Electron / Atom Shell. The best alternative is ConEmu, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Git Bash are PowerShell (Free, Open Source), Hyper (Free, Open Source), Tabby (Free, Open Source) and Windows Command Prompt (Paid).
