This is version 5.0.2 of CMDFetch. CMDFetch is a clone of screenfetch/screenfo for Windows written in Lua. CMDFetch was written as a batch file and distributed with proprietary binaries until version 2.0.0. Version 2.0.0 and later are written in Lua with no proprietary dependencies Version 2.1.5 was re-written from the bottom up as version 3.0.0 with several new features. Version four was a feature clone of Version three with a cleaner code base, but it never saw completion. Version five is a rewrite of Version four with a modified feature set. Versions 3.0.0 to 4.0.0 are source independent of versions predating 2.0.0 like Winfetch, but are a continuation of the project and contain fragments of code from versions after 2.0.0. Versions 5.0.0 and after are source independent of all previous versions, but functionally comparable.

  • A lua interpreter: After installation you can use "lua cmdfetch.lua" to run cmdfetch in your favorite Unix shell or CMD. [ ] This is a packaged Lua binary, keeps the footprint small.

  • A method of ANSI escape codes: This is an application that adds ANSI escape codes to CMD

    NOTE: Any Cygwin PTY will do instead of this. The Cygwin Terminal or "Mintty" is installed with the Cygwin base and works fine, you can use Lua in cygwin. As of v.4.0.0, this is the recommended course of action. After you download it, run it and you can use it as you would CMD

  • Lua Socket if you want the "Now Playing" line to work.

  • Foobar Control Server if you want the "Now Playing" line to work with foobar.
