Best way to create a new file from within helix?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/HelixEditor | 9 Jan 2023
Another option is to create a file in the command line, but quitting from the editor can be a bit of a hassle. So, what we can do is split the screen with tmux or zellij. Use a file manager if you prefer visual. Personally use nnn.

nnn - n³ The unorthodox terminal file manager
I wrote a super minimal, fast file manager in BASH v5+. Looking for testers/contributors
3 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 29 Dec 2022
I used your program for a little bit and it is a very nice effort. Although I would like to ask you, why not use nnn as a file manager which is insanely fast and has several functionalities as well. I am hoping you are aware of the project.

Same experience. For me Finder is simply unusable, not sure if I'm not used to it but the experience is terrible for me. So I prefer to do everything through the terminal or use some TUI like https://github.com/jarun/nnn
The only time that I have to interact with the UI is when I have to do something on System Settings, which is also dreadful.
dext: Sort files into directories based on file extensions

I do this with "organize" plugin from nnn file manager, it's a simple shell script using "file" command to identify files. More plugins.
Drag and Drop from Terminal
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Dec 2022
I use nnn and it has a simple plugin based on dragon. I can press `;d` and the dragon window pops up.
It is an OK workflow IMO. I'm not sure if I can directly drag and drop from the terminal list somehow. Or better yet, a full keyboard workflow.
