Game console emulators are software that allows your PC to emulate a video game console’s hardware and play its games on the emulating platform. This also applies to terminal emulators which helps to reduce the workload of some computer users who prefer using their keyboard to work.
A terminal connection can be set up with another computer using the SSH (Secure Shell) protocol, Telnet or dial-up. These terminal emulators are commonly known as command-line shells, terminal window or text terminals. Are used in replicating the functionalities of classic computer terminals such as a minicomputer or a mainframe. Although these computers are outdated, terminal emulators are still very much important in the system administration circle.
This is a console emulator which features a great graphical user interface, offering a better alternative over the Windows default command prompt tool.
The application is based on the ConEmu console emulator which is further enhanced using clink (such as bash-style completion in cmd.exe and PowerTab in powershell.exe) and optionally extending it with msysgit, which introduces Unix tools to Windows. The tool makes the ConEmu interface more attractive and simple with a Monokai color scheme, new keyboard shortcuts and sensitive completion.
The application can be integrated with Cygwin, mintty, powershell and msysgit, and works well with popular IDEs like VS Code.
Overall, this tool is a great replacement for Windows command prompt and it very portable, making it easier to carry around in a USB drive.
