Using GitBash in Jetbrain's IDE


0 min read

Whenever I program, I spend most of time in the GitBash instead of having tons of other tools. I love simplicity. But JetBrain's Integrated Terminal defaults to Windows' age-old CMD. Let's change it right away.

Get it going

  1. Go to File -> Settings -> Tools -> Terminal.
  2. Enter the small snippet in your Shell Path to see the magic.
    "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i
  3. Swoosh! You are done.

If your GitBash is installed somewhere else, you can replace the path. Just make sure you direct it correctly to sh.exe ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
