    A hackable, minimal, fast TUI file explorer

    The file specifying the dependencies is over 1000 lines long ( - there are different types of minimal of course, and a small amount of code leveraging a lot of deps is valid, but is does make one think.

    OTOH the highest voted comment as of this writing is comparing it to dired, so it's no worse than the competition I guess :)

    This is really cool! I use a similar tool for fuzzy cd[0]. At the moment I'm trying to use broot[1] as my directory browser but I might consider trying this too
