Implement our own subshell logic #2371

merged 7 commits into from Jun 29, 2018


Copy link

Remove all pew workon usages, and implement the subshell functionality from scratch based on Shellingham.

With real shell detection on POSIX implemented, the subshell now defaults to match parent shell, instead of login shell. This would help reduce surprising behaviour such as #1762.

I tested the code on Windows and Ubuntu (WSL) in both fancy and compat mode, and am fairly confident this implementation is reasonably complete. It would probably still be a good idea to rigorously test this manually on various platforms before releasing it to the public.

This also fixes #915 (a bug in Pew).

To replace Pew's "workon" command. New code built on Shellingham.

This also fixes a few additional minor bugs, e.g. Cmder not launching
Powershell when it should.

I'm surprised that this doesn't seem to fix #876 since that was a bug with pew. Is there a different bug with Shellingham?

Unfortunately Shellingham does many things the same as Pew. It fixes a lot of things, but not all of them. But it’d be possible to work on it now, at least.
