In last few post we mentioned using bash in Windows by install Git.
It comes with handy *nix tools like
ssh… but something still missing is
Because it do not mean to be collection of POSIX software for Windows. It is a wont-fix for them.
Git for Windows is based on MSYS2 (As of version Git-SCM 2.13.3)
Unfortunately it does not comes with pacman (Package manager) so there are not official way to install packages.
Furthermore, cwRsync and DeltaCopy does not work in bash environment.
According to this post in serverfault, there are two ways to do:
- Install the Git for Windows SDK (which includes pacman).
- Install Git inside MSYS2.
I tried both solution but they missed the explorer integration in Git-SCM version.
Well… they both based on MSYS2 and their executable should be compatible
Extract it using 7-zip and drop
C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin and profit!
Likewise, you can find more *nix tools from pacman repository and install it manually.
