Intgrating Alacritty with Clink
24 May 2021
To my shame, I still haven't learned PowerShell... I still use CMD.EXE with the Readline features provided by Clink, along with a bunch of GNU tools in my path.
Integrating Clink into the Alacritty terminal emulator wasn't immediately obvious, so here'e my solution. Open
%APPDATA%\alacritty\alacritty.yml, find the shell section and set it to:
shell: program: cmd args: - /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\clink\0.4.9\clink_x64.exe" inject --profile %LOCALAPPDATA%\clink\"
