User Reviews

  • Better than ranger.

  • This is a must-try for anybody who is used to vi-type of software. After a couple of days of fiddling around, this became my default file manager. Also, the developers seems to be closely monitoring internet forums and provide feedback. Thanks for a great piece of software.

  • Easy to use, low on resources and with excellent manual.

  • Delightful for vim users! Easy to use, light, just what you need for easy and fast browsing of files. Great replacement for GNU Midnight Commander.

  • Terrific !
