NNN terminal file-manager

Post#1 by M. Eerie » 22 May 2021, 10:44

From the same author of buku (terminal bookmark manager), comes nnn terminal file-manager.

At first glance, it seems pretty similar to ranger, lf and the like, but nnn is just a 125Kb binary (1,5 Mb if you want pretty icons) written in C that you can compile by yourself in no time because it has very few dependencies, or just grab a precompiled binary.


The result is a full-featured and blazing fast program, extensible by simple plugins that can be written in any scripting language.

This is a Quickstart to nnn.

Watch some videos.

Even though this poses a major change in the usual file managing workflow/habits, I hope you find it useful and I'm sure once you get used to it, you won't regret it.
