Love the modern code base, it feels very lean and efficient. Had a usability issue, and the author fixed it within a week! Highly recommended. It will only keep getting better.

Hi Cory, fman author here. Sorry for the difficulty selecting files. Do I understand correctly that you are on Mac?

Thanks for letting me know. I will do my best to implement this soon. Particularly important given fman's recent addition of a context menu.

I just released fman 1.0.9 that lets you select items by mouse :-) Shift+Spacebar is (not) yet supported, but I hope that already helps you Cory?

Minimalistic, configurable, extensible.

Extremely bare bones. Even with plugins, it lacks basic functions such as finding files recursively (Alt+F7 in TC/DC) or calculating a folder's size (Space). I like how keyboard centric it is and the Sublime inspired command palette, but it's just too simplistic and sadly the project seems dead - the executable has been signed two years ago.

It reminds me of Sublime Text, even uses same quick panel and shortcut for it. ST was probebly fman's inspiration. But its not open source. You need to buy a license to use full features!

I like the Sublime Text inspired look and feel, and it has potential, but it's not quite there yet (for me).

I understand that functionality can be added through plugins, but there are few of them so far. So, basic/useful information that one would expect in a file manager is missing. E.g. Only the columns Name, Size, and Modified are shown. No others, such as "Date Added", "Date Accessed", "Kind", etc. can be added/removed.

Also, I find it a little slow (not deadly slow, but a bit janky) to load and scroll through folders with even a modest number of files. What's a modest number? Well, that's something that's missing from fman. There is no summary information about a folder, so I had to open Finder for that. FTR it's about 2200 files.

fman has great potential, and I'll keep an eye on the project, but I'm taking a pass for now.

FTR, I'm using fman on MacOS 10.13.6 with a fairly new and well spec'd MacBook Pro
