  • Why use the terminal?
    reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-09-21
    Ranger is a python script. Here are some faster and full-featured terminal file managers: nnn. vifm.
  • Opinions about CliFM, the command line file manager
    reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-09-12
    I don't actually have much loyalty towards any one file manager, but have you taken a look at nnn? You seem to both have similar goals, I wonder if there's things you could learn from each other.
  • Recommend me some file managers. Which do you think is best?
    https://github.com/jarun/nnn looks like n-cubed!
  • Which Tools do you use for Project organization and checklists? I'm just using my readme.md at the moment. But am curious to find out if there are any tools that stand out from the crowd.
    I use a rolling ToDo list which is essentially a GithUb issue, roll it at around 50 comments.
  • (Auto-)Mounting removable drives
    lsblk and pmount combined together can be very handy to (un)mount drives manually from the terminal. I prefer it because some of my 2TB disks have multiple encrypted partitions and I don't want popups appearing for each volume when I connect them. You can have a simple script to automate this. Here's an example script.
  • /r/StarTrek has gone private with a note saying it’s them or NNN. A flash in the pan or the first of many?
    nnn a nice little file manager for the command-lined
  • With a brand-new, Fish-like suggestions system, CliFM 1.2.1 is released!
    reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-08-29
    File manager nnn does the same. Or, is it more driven by the fact that clifm shows the prompt all the time?
  • ~/.* folders, how to clean them and how to keep them nice and clean
    nnn has a powerful disk usage analyzer built-in.
  • Seeking a terminal file manager
  • File explorer on USB devices is crazy slow
    Here is link number 1 - Previous text "nnn"
    If you are investigating it, try a terminal file manager like nnn and check the performance when browsing such a directory. GUI applications have their own bells and whistles (thumbnails and meta info, for example) which may slow things down.
  • Is it possible to display images on the terminal using C?
    nnn supports several mechanisms to preview images in the terminal and ueberzug delivers the best results. However, technology keeps improving and I think libsixel is the most promising.
  • How to store a command to be re-used? eval?
    reddit.com/r/bash | 2021-08-20
    Yes, using bash functions is the simplest way to go. At appears nnn devs prefer the same too: https://github.com/jarun/nnn/tree/master/misc/quitcd
  • Smart archive handling in the terminal without having to remember any switch
    Enter nnn with its smart workflows. By default it supports bzip2, (g)zip, tar. It auto-detects atool/bsdtar/unrar and can handle more types.
