Babun - a Windows shell you will love!

Would you like to use a linux-like console on a Windows host without a lot of fuzz? Try out babun!


The core of Babun consists of a pre-configured Cygwin. Cygwin is a great tool, but there’s a lot of quirks and tricks that makes you lose a lot of time to make it actually usable. Not only does babun solve most of these problems, but also contains a lot of vital packages, so that you can be productive from the very first minute.

Babun provides a package manager called pact. It is similar to apt-get or yum. Pact enables installing/searching/upgrading and deinstalling cygwin packages with no hassle at all. Just invoke pact --help to check how to use it.


Babun’s shell is tweaked in order to provide the best possible user-experience. There are two shell types that are pre-configured and available right away - bash and zsh (zsh is the default one). Babun’s shell features:
  • syntax highlighting
  • UNIX tools
  • software development tools
  • git-aware prompt
  • custom scripts and aliases
  • and much more!
