Windows Terminal, Pretty prompts & In-line Git Status!

Recently I was having an interesting conversation with fellow Azure blogger ‘jonnychipz’, who told me all about the new windows terminal app, and the really useful customisations you can make, as blogged by Scott Hanselman.

Windows terminal brings together Powershell, Command Prompt, Azure Powershell and Ubuntu console from one handy location.

Just follow the processes on Scott Hanselmans blog to install on both Windows and Ubuntu. You should end up with something like the below screenshot. Note that when you browse to a git enable directory, the current status is shown in-line in pretty fonts. Install Ubuntu through the store to see the Ubuntu option. Enjoy!
