Add real emojis and icons to mintty bash on windows

Installing git for windows isn’t hard anymore. I recommend installing “Git for Windows SDK” so you can install extra packages via Pacman. I like fish shell and tmux, and those aren’t included in the default installer. Either way, you can run bash and or fish on windows. The emojis and icons however don’t look very pretty, more like DOS-style.

Open a shell and cd to

C:\Program Files\Git\usr\share\mintty\emojis or C:\git-sdk-64\usr\share\mintty\emojis depending what installation you chose.

cd C:\git-sdk-64\usr\share\mintty\
mkdir emojis
cd emojis
curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wiki/mintty/mintty/getemojis
getemoji -d
getemoji .

In mintty:
Options -> Text -> Emojis -> style: google
Options -> Text -> Character set -> UTF-8

farbige man pages

Man pages sind nicht immer sehr √ľbersichtlich. Die man pages etwas einzuf√§rben hilft!

ans Ende der .bashrc

export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$'\E[01;31m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$'\E[01;31m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_me=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_se=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_so=$'\E[01;44;33m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_ue=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_us=$'\E[01;32m'

schon sind die man pages in Farbe.
