I have a machine which has Win10 installed, along with Cygwin, whose terminal I use (
mintty). Also, I use that machine for long SSH sessions to other machines, in parallel with work on the machine itself.
I would like to be able to hold all of these shell sessions in a single application, as tabs (or in some other relevant arrangement), and in a way which would make it relatively easy for me tell them apart. It is thus important to me to be able to set some or all of the following:
- Tab header background color
- Tab header foreground color
- Tab title (or title prefix etc.)
- Tab header font weight / color
- Terminal colors
- Terminal font and font size
... for individual tabs (or categories of tabs).
It's essential that this happen for local shell sessions (with Cygwin's bash) - not just remote connections. In fact, just local sessions is already ok - like terminal multiplexers on Unix machines, since you can ssh from that terminal. Support for Windows Powershell and/or regular command shell is also important, though less critical.
This question is related to, but not the same as, this one.
