Xfile Alternatives

    Xfile is described as 'completely Cocoa and Unix based file manager for the OS X operating system written for professional developers and system/network administrators' and is a File Manager in the File Management category. There are more than 10 alternatives to Xfile for a variety of platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, BSD and Electron / Atom Shell. The best alternative is Double Commander, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Xfile are Total Commander (Freemium), Midnight Commander (Free, Open Source), Forklift (Paid) and fman (Freemium).
