Set up Windows Powershell to use cygwin where possible and optionally autolaunch bash when it starts up

#WebStorm Cygwin with "PowerBash" Begin with the guide by @nullivex here for general installation. NOTE: This is all with 32-bit stuff even on x64 platform. Cygwin32, and WebStorm and Node.js etc all set up 32-bit. You may skip the Git parts of that guide, and instead install Cygwin and the git and openssh it contains. Otherwise, you must NOT set up git in Cygwin so that the Native Git is found. But, that would sort of negate most of the gains herein. If you already use Cygwin and its git and have openssh keys all set up for Github and etc, this is a way to keep one set of configurations, and a familiar shell.

This will set up WebStorm to use Cygwin versions of everything except for:

  • Node.js (because there is no Cygwin version currently)
  • Python (because some of the Node.js/npm thin
You can’t perform that action at this time.
