While we wait for a better Windows Terminal, I’d like to share my setup with those who also want colored emoji support on Windows 10.
Requirements: Julia 1.x.x, 64bit Windows 10
How to use it: Unzip and run startjulia.exe
How it works: It uses an Autohotkey script to locate your latest installed copy of Julia 1.x.x, and renames the user folder inside \CygwinPortable\App\Runtime\Cygwin\Home to your current Windows user’s name so Mintty will function properly. It then starts Julia via Mintty with a Windows shell script. startjulia.exe is just a renamed copy of Autohotkey v2 H executable. The script is in startjulia.ahk.
