The dysfunctional “shell” under Windows is a persistent pain point for me.
I asked for Julia to be started in the Git bash, but apparently that is too tricky.
It is good to have an idle half-an-hour :). I have something now that almost works.
An ugly hack? Perhaps. But it works to a large degree. In the Julia console in Atom, run
run(`"C:\\Program Files\\Git\\bin\\bash.exe" -exec julia`)
Now for the “large degree”: I get a functional Julia, but “Run block” or “Run file” do not work anymore I guess those commands still try to communicate with the underlying Julia running in the “cmd”? Would it be possible to communicate instead with the Julia I just started in the bash?
