Hyperstart

Short script for Windows that allows you to select which shell you want when Hyper starts. As flexible as the windows command line.

Install

  1. Grab the script from below.
  2. Save it wherever you want.
  3. Set your shell to '' (meaning CMD on Windows) and your shellArgs to ["/C", "path\\to\\your\\hyperstart.bat"]
  4. Additional steps
  • To enable the "launch elevated" line, Hyper needs to be on the PATH.

Customize

Add a shell

  1. Add another ECHO line with a new number: ECHO [4] Python
  2. Add the corresponding number to the CHOICE line: CHOICE /N /C:1234
  3. Add the corresponding IF ERRORLEVEL line below the CLS line: IF ERRORLEVEL ==4 python
  4. Fix up the other numbers, if necessary.
