Git Bash inside WebStorm

I think that the Git bash is the best bash emulation these days for Windows platform. As a Linux fan I prefer use bash and the unix tools like ls, grep, cat, vim, etc.

I’ve been using it for a long time configuring it in Console2. But recently I discover that is also possible and really easy to use it from WebStorm or other JetBrains IDE.

Using WebStorm 9 go to the Terminal preferences in “File > Settings > Tools > Terminal”
and change the Shell path to:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe” –login -i

Enjoy 😉
