Running PS on my android phone


don’t tell me that this is silly (I know it is) but I was curious if I could run Powershell on my andoid phone - and it is actually quite easy.

You need the termux-app and then install a linux-distribution with proot-install. Then you can install the PS-arm64-binary from the github-repository. You then need to set an environment-variable to limit the heap-size and that’s it.

Not sure how useful it would be, and you went around the world to get it running, but that’s pretty cool! Do the base cmdlets seem to work (Get-ChildItem, Get-Location, etc.)? And have you been able to get very deep into the file system with it?
