‘Whack Whack Terminal’ is a Visual Studio 2017 Terminal Plugin | @VisualStudio

For any VS users out there you might find this useful. This plugin essentially gives you the power of the command line from within the VS software – neat!

Whack Whack Terminal is an experimental free plugin for Visual Studio 2017 that aims to bring a full terminal inside of Visual Studio. Those of you who use Visual Studio Code have long enjoyed the integrated xtermjs terminal. Justin Clareburt worked with Daniel Griffen on hacking together this solution as an experiment. There is no plans for it to be more than an experiment, I’m told BUT I always say vote with your feet. I figure a few tens of thousands of installs and someone will decide to build it in. I have long used Mads Kristensen’s Quake Mode that lets me launch a command prompt from VS, but ever since the NuGet Package manager showed up in VS many years ago, I’ve always wanted a real FULL terminal in VS.
