Installing Bat in Ubuntu Windows WSL
I migrated to Windows and when I was installing Ubuntu through WSL I missed some tools that I have in my current MacBook, BAT was one of them. So as soon as I found a couple of guides online, here I will try to leave it as a reminder and with simple steps.
First, open your Windows Terminal (with Ubuntu) and search for the latest version on GitHub . It was
0.22.1 for me.
Then check if you have wget working. The most common way to do it is checking it with
wget --version, else use the following script:
Now you can download Bat with the following script, remember replacing
VERSION by the latest version that you saw on Github.
Installing it using dpkg
Then you can use dpkg to install Debian packages
And that’s all, now you can use bat to see the content of your files inside the terminal.
