Not a new thing, lots of posts there about it.. I have been trying to get it to a nice point, and I think I have been able to. I installed a new CMD client that actually works better than the one OOB.

Go here to get it. It allows changing the default font, which is necessary if you want to run the cool Oh My ZSH extension, on the zsh shell.

Now, I installed Angular CLI, Docker CLI, GIT, and I am in a better place.

Recently I needed to use RipGrep on my shell, so I tried the mythical apt-get, with no luck. I Went online to find another way to do it, and the installation notes on RipGrep tell you to install using snappy (for Linux). That didn’t work either. Snappy is not functional in WSL 😖.

However, the Debian install did work! so I ran the commands stated for Debian :

$ curl -LO
$ sudo dpkg -i ripgrep_0.8.1_amd64.deb

That allowed me to run rg from my CMD!
