How to install and configure hyper for Windows 10

Command Prompt with some slick lines & padding

Configuring bash as default shell

// the shell to run when spawning a new session 
// if left empty, your system's login shell will be used by default shell: '',
// for setting shell arguments
// by default `['--login']` will be used
shellArgs: ['--login'],
// the shell to run when spawning a new session 
// if left empty, your system's login shell will be used by default shell: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Git\\bin\\bash.exe',
// for setting shell arguments
// by default `['--login']` will be used
shellArgs: ['-i'],
Hooray, we got bash!

Wait, what? The terminal just closed?

// the shell to run when spawning a new session 
// if left empty, your system's login shell will be used by default shell: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Git\\usr\\bin\\bash.exe',
> ls -la
> clear

What the actual f..? All of the output is scrambled when using clear!

// for environment variables
env: { TERM: 'cygwin' },

Lets install some plugins!

> hyper install hyperborder
bash: hyper: command not found
> cd ~ && touch .bashrc
export PATH=$PATH:~/AppData/Local/hyper/app-2.0.0/resources/bin

Let’s try installing hyperborder one more time.

Before & after restarting hyper
hyper-snazzy: strong vibrant colors..?
// custom CSS to embed in the main window
css: `
.term_fit:not(.term_term) {
opacity: 1 !important
}
`,
That looks more like it!
