Adding profiles for third-party tools

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

All of these profiles are provided without their guid set. If you'd like to set any of these profiles as your default profile, you'll need to make sure to generate a unique guid for them manually.


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%"


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

    "commandline" : "cmd.exe /k %CMDER_ROOT%\\vendor\\init.bat",
    "name" : "cmder",
    "startingDirectory" : "%USERPROFILE%"


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.

Far Manager

Assuming that you've installed Far into c:\Program Files\Far Manager:

    "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",
    "icon" : "C:/Program Files/Git/mingw64/share/git/git-for-windows.ico",
    "startingDirectory" : "%USERPROFILE%"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
