vifm a true gem
* A ncurse file manager, with vim like UI for a vim user you will feel right
at home, command like the dd delete line just like in vim, and move to other
window and type p past the line in the "clipboard" to it. And the normal move
command like the hjkl works as expected jk down/up item in list and hl
up/down directory. like in vim most settings are made in it's rc file, the
vifmrc is in ~/.vifm to get an idea about all the option you have in vifm go
to http://vifm.sourceforge.net/docs.html#OPTIONS it's amazing what you can do
with vifm, if you like me has been using vim for sometime this filemanager is
a true gem. And much like vim, the options are "endless" browse on the project
homepage or at github.com. You will find the sourcecode/setup and help to make your own
setup. I often look at the config/setup on github to get idea's and mabye
improve my setup.
* On http://vifm.sourceforge.net/docs.html is the documentation for vifm.
* I must say after using vifm for some time, and done some github'ing made my
own vifmrc some nice filetype setting and hard-bookmarks, it's like vim the
more you use it, and add to your rc file the better and faster it get.
