  • nushell

    A new type of shell

  • I found nushell (https://www.nushell.sh) to be an impressive replacement "bash" for Windows

    In terms of philosophy, think "Powershell but actually intuitive" : Every data is structured but command names are what you expect them to be. I usually don't even need to look at the documentation.

    I liked it so much that I also replaced my shell on Linux with it, so I have the same terminal experience across all OSes

  • dotnet-script

    Run C# scripts from the .NET CLI.

  • >making powershell actually enjoyable to use

    My solution was to stop using it and instead use dotnet-script

    https://github.com/dotnet-script/dotnet-script

    Scripting with the full power of modern C# has been a huge win for me. And same/similar scripts will work on Windows/Linux/Mac. As my work language is C#, I don't have to context switch to another language for scripting.

  • wsl-vpnkit

    Provides network connectivity to WSL 2 when blocked by VPN

  • https://github.com/sakai135/wsl-vpnkit fixes that problem for me, and is less annoying than other fixes I tried

  • ReportingServicesTools

    Reporting Services Powershell Tools
