Projects / Xplorer


Xplorer is a file manager with fast and accurate filetype detection. It has a tree and a list field displaying the contents of your local filesystem. Drag and drop, and cut and paste are supported along with deleting, renaming, and creating files. It does not have embedded file viewers, but launches the external applications of your choice. The package runs directly on Xlib and does not have a dependency on external toolkits.
