Adding profiles for third-party tools

This doc will hopefully provide a useful guide for adding profiles for common third-party tools to your settings.json file.

Anaconda

Assuming that you've installed Anaconda into %USERPROFILE%\Anaconda3:

{
    "commandline": "cmd.exe /k \"%USERPROFILE%\\Anaconda3\\Scripts\\activate.bat %USERPROFILE%\\Anaconda3\"",
    "icon": "%USERPROFILE%\\Anaconda3\\Menu\\anaconda-navigator.ico",
    "name": "Anaconda3",
    "startingDirectory": "%USERPROFILE%"
}

cmder

Assuming that you've installed cmder into %CMDER_ROOT%:

{
    "commandline": "cmd.exe /k \"%CMDER_ROOT%\\vendor\\init.bat\"",
    "name": "cmder",
    "icon": "%CMDER_ROOT%\\icons\\cmder.ico",
    "startingDirectory": "%USERPROFILE%"
}

Cygwin

Assuming that you've installed Cygwin into C:\Cygwin:

{
    "name": "Cygwin",
    "commandline": "C:\\Cygwin\\bin\\bash --login -i",
    "icon": "C:\\Cygwin\\Cygwin.ico",
    "startingDirectory": "C:\\Cygwin\\bin"
}

Note that the starting directory of Cygwin is set as it is to make the path work. The default directory opened when starting Cygwin will be $HOME because of the --login flag.

{
    "name": "Far",
    "commandline": "\"c:\\program files\\far manager\\far.exe\"",
    "startingDirectory": "%USERPROFILE%",
    "useAcrylic": false
},

Git Bash

Assuming that you've installed Git Bash into C:\\Program Files\\Git:

{
    "name": "Git Bash",
    "commandline": "C:\\Program Files\\Git\\bin\\bash.exe -li",
    "icon": "C:\\Program Files\\Git\\mingw64\\share\\git\\git-for-windows.ico",
    "startingDirectory": "%USERPROFILE%"
}

Git Bash (WOW64)

    "commandline": "C:\\msys64\\msys2_shell.cmd -defterm -no-start -mingw64",
    "icon": "C:\\msys64\\msys2.ico",
    "startingDirectory": "C:\\msys64\\home\\user"
}
