    Nice... Do you think we can somehow integrate it with xplr to that I don't have to implement tabs and panes?

    In this post I would like to demonstrate a new potential extension to your development workflow, xplr - a fast and minimalist file manager that allows you to easily get creative with.
  • Transfer files over WiFi between your computer and your smartphone
    Nice, if you'd like, you can submit an `xplr` hack like this. I'll include it in the wiki.
  • Looking for a new plugin owner
    reddit.com/r/neovim | 2021-04-19
    Now, I would like to clean up, probably improve and turn xplr.vim into a real and well maintained plugin, with its own dedicated variables and docs. However, I have no experience with vim plugin development and decided that it's better to offload this task to someone who knows their way around the (neo)vim plugin system, so that I can focus more on xplr's development instead.
  • xplr hacks - fuzzy search (with preview), copy - paste using clipboard, bookmark paths, batch rename, share via QR, serve $PWD, scan disk (ncdu, dua-cli, diskonaut)
    The pipes and Key-Bindings config allows control `xplr` sessions using either your keyboard directly, or using another program that echoes messages to the input pipe.
