Works fine for me ... Using vagrant works ok but installation is heavy and long, install windows git for desktop or equivalent, install vagrant, reboot, install virtual box, install ssh, ssh into vbox, build wiki ... I’d challenge anyone to get a working local wiki in less than ½ hour using the vagrant method ... assuming all works well and they are somewhat familiar with vagrant, VMs, ssh ... One downside of vagrant, too, is that it requires the VM to run in the background. Also if you are using docker for other things virtualbox won’t work as docker needs hyper-V (there are workaounds but it’s messy) This proposal is just a cygwin alternative to building with vagrant, quick and easy one-click, which should help windows users that already use cygwin for ardupilot builds or SITL So just an additional wiki build alternative on windows, like we have with using WSL vs cygwin for source builds (or a Linux VM). Not that I am crazy about using windows btw! ;)
Also one (ok, minor) additional cygwin wiki advantage vs vagrant way is that you get both ardupilot and ardupilot-wiki git repos in same (cygwin) directory. vs if you already use cygwin one under cygwin home, and the other under different default git bash directory.
I got no strong opinion on this. It is just that recently we get a lot of report of issue with cygwin. Wsl is better way now!
Otherwise I made a PR for docker ;-P
I didn't test on windows but it should only be a matter of mounting the volume correctly
ok. Docker sounds good!
Nice, worked great on windows. (But needed powershell command prompt, see comment.)

Hello everyone , my name is Moksh.
I'm tired to work with battery beep beep module also telemetry data. all time battery parameters shows incorrectly because it's depend on how much current draw but , many time I'm not fully charge battery to run on my copter. So I need smart battery module or atleast mp know actually how much battery drain. Thank you 🙂
@Moksh-2000, yes smart batteries would be nice. AP has added support for a few different smart batteries, I think it's really about manufacturers bringing more smart batteries to the market, especially ones with an SMBus interface so AP can connect to them.
