Rider Terminal tips
- Stop Leaving the Terminal when you press the Escape key. It is really annoying when you are a vim fan like me! here's the solution
Go to "Settings | Tools | Terminal" and click "Configure terminal keybindings".
Find "Plug-ins | Terminal | Switch Focus To Editor" action and change its keyboard shortcut (by default "Escape") via the context menu.
Keybindings are IDE-wide, so there is no need to change them for each project.
- Using msys2 bash as the embedded terminal: at
Settings > Tools > Terminal
Environment Variables: CHERE_INVOKING=1 Shell path: c:\msys64\usr\bin\bash.exe --login
Unfortunately, the environment variables above work only on the current project; It is definitely a tedious process that you have to repeatedly set it up for every project. So I eventually found a better way to achieve the same goal without setting up the Environment variables in Rider. Here is the answer Reference:
Shell path: C:\msys64\msys2_shell.cmd -defterm -here -no-start
