            using git-posh or/and oh-my-posh with Command Prompt(cmd, not Powershell) inside windows terminal
            Asked 2022-Mar-22 at 13:19

            Recently switched to new windows terminal, and after hours of searching on internet I was not able to find anything helpful, all what I want is to set up cmd inside new windows terminal to show git branches just like it's achievable for powershell.

            eg like this

            I have been very comfortable with cmd especially with its ability to use additional linux commands and don't wanna switch to powershell only because of nice displays of git branches. this is a source where everything is nicely explained for powershell, all I want is to do the same for CMD.

            thanks in advance

            In order to use Oh My Posh for shell-prompt customization from cmd.exe, the legacy Windows shell (citing from the docs (tab cmd)):

            There's no out of the box support for Windows CMD when it comes to custom prompts. There is however a way to do it using Clink, which at the same time supercharges your cmd experience. Follow the installation instructions and make sure you select autostart.

            As you later discovered, this issue on GitHub has background information on why native cmd.exe support isn't possible (even though Oh My Posh is generally shell-agnostic) and why third-party software is needed to make it work.

            As for your comments re preferring cmd.exe:

            I have been very comfortable with cmd

            Migrating from the shell one is used to a new one is undoubtedly a painful transition, but well worth considering in this case:

            While not without its quirks, PowerShell is vastly superior in just about every respect to cmd.exe, and enables you to do things you simply cannot do in cmd.exe

            its ability to use additional linux commands

            Linux (WSL) commands called from the Windows side are all mediated via executables (notably wsl.exe and bash.exe), which you can equally call from PowerShell.



            Bump date-based tag in GitHub Actions
            Asked 2021-Dec-14 at 01:23

            I'm trying to create automatic releases of a project using GitHub Actions where the release tag is based on the date. I don't want to use standard semantic versioning because this project is a fork of another project that uses date-based versioning. I've found posts about the getting the date in a workflow and have this so far:

            You can use our versioning library -

            Then you can declare version pattern to be something like: YYYY.0M.0D.Micro

            Then the following command would produce a base version:



            Where is settings.json for powershell configuration in Windows Terminal?
            Asked 2020-Sep-23 at 15:47

            I'm new to Windows 10, having spent a lot of time on Mac OS X and some on Ubuntu, and I've read a lot about the types of things that are good to put in the settings.json file for my PowerShell, but I can't seem to find anything that tells me where this file resides.

            For example, the "Set up Powerline in PowerShell" section in this Microsoft document tells you to edit your settings.json file (specifically in the subsection titled "Set Cascadia Code PL as fontFace in settings"), and points you to this document telling you about the layout of this file, but it doesn't seem to tell you where to find it!

            In case the subsection gets changed, this is the first two paragraphs of that section:

            To set the Cascadia Code PL font for use with PowerLine (after downloading, unzipping, and installing on your system), you will need to open your profile settings in your settings.json file by selecting Settings (Ctrl+,) from your Windows Terminal drop-down menu.

            Once your settings.json file opens, find the Windows PowerShell profile and add: "fontFace": "Cascadia Code PL" to designate Cascadia Code PL as the font. This will provide those nice Cascadia Code Powerline glyphs. You should notice the change in your terminal as soon as you select Save in your editor.

            Where is the settings.json file?

            You can find the location of the settings.json file with the following Powershell commands:

            Install cascadia-code

            Once unzipped, right-click the font file and click Install for all users. This will install the font onto your machine. 👉 Note: If you have previously installed a version of Cascadia Code, please uninstall the previous version prior to installing a new version. Not doing so can result in improper rendering. For more details and app-specific instructions, please check the wiki.
            ttf variable: we recommend this version for all users, and particularly those on Windows or any other OS that employs TrueType hinting. It offers the greatest diversity of weight options (anything from 200-700).
            ttf static: in the rare situation where the above variable font version is not supported, or a singular weight is preferred to the entire range, static formats are supplied. However, please note they do not have the same degree of hinting quality as the variable font versions.
            otf static: for users who prefer OTF format fonts, otf static instances are provided. At this time we do not have a variable font OTF version.
            WOFF2: These versions are provided for the purposes of web use, and are available both as variable fonts, and static instances.
