CliFM, the command line file manager for Unix-like operating systems

CliFM's logo
Unlike most terminal file managers out there, CliFM does not rely on the TUI (aka, curses interface), but entirely on the command line: it's more like an extension of the shell than a separate program running on top of it. It is, verbatim, a Command Line Interface File Manager.

Written in C, it is super fast, lightweight, heavily customizable, and full-featured: bookmarks, files search and selection, trash system, resource opener, workspaces, commands and directory history, TAB completion, Fish-like auto-suggestions, autojump-like directory jumper, autocd and auto-open, plugins (including files preview and Git integration), and more.

Take a look at it here.

Comments and suggestions are really appreciated!

Thank you very much in advance.
