    Pretty fancy and modern terminal file manager

    When did you try it and do you have an idea why it could have happened? I'm simply curious about it, but this doesn't sound great. I found this issue [1] which should have been fixed in version 1.1.1 [2].

  • bubbletea

    A powerful little TUI framework 🏗

    Seems like they're using Bubble Tea, a Terminal UI framework for Go. I've heard very good things about it and have been meaning to check it out.

  • gum

    A tool for glamorous shell scripts 🎀

    The same project has an application called Gum which exposes primitives from their UI framework via a single CLI binary. It's intended to be used from a normal bash script and I've found it really quite pleasant to use.

    For example, you could write 'gum choose foo bar baz' to get a nice picker over the three provided options.

    Their repo has a ton of examples: https://github.com/charmbracelet/gum

    I love that there are a lot of great options in this space. This one looked nice due to its selection pane: https://xplr.dev/

  • wezterm

    A GPU-accelerated cross-platform terminal emulator and multiplexer written by @wez and implemented in Rust

    I very well might be in the minority of Linux users, but I don't particularly care about the answers to most of these questions. I just want it to work. Give me solid defaults[0]. I'm not saying you shouldn't be able to override those defaults. That's an important feature of Linux.

    My first experience running a cool-looking TUI file manager yesterday (I actually ended up trying yazi first) was that I got a lot of blank squares in place of missing icons and emojis due to missing fonts. I had to spend 20 minutes figuring that out before I got a good experience.

    Interestingly, I also tried wezterm[1] in the process. It actually ships with the required fonts as fallback, but the version from my distro's package manager didn't work, while the AppImage did. I'm guessing my distro removed them, maybe for some of the reasons you cited. I started installing the nerd-fonts group for my distro. 6.5GB... no thanks. After manually poking through them and some googling I finally installed a couple and it's working now.

    My overall point is that it's possible for app developers to provide good defaults like wezterm does. It's also possible for distro's to break those defaults.
