The RNR text mode file manager

Hello everyone,
I made a text mode file manager called RNR, that combines the best features of Midnight Commander and Ranger.
You can check it out here:

https://github.com/bugnano/rnr

Other than being very convenient for quickly navigating directories, it also has a unique feature that is it's a very robust file copier, and the only file manager that I know of that resumes copy operations if the power goes off in the middle of the process.

I also made a video tutorial that you can see here:

Or, if you don't like being tracked by google, the same tutorial can be found here:

I hope that you find it useful.

Re: The RNR text mode file manager

Can you rename it? There is already a tool named rnr with a PKGBUILD in AUR. It is about file renaming, which is also a file managing task.

Maybe rnrnmc (r is neither ranger nor mc)?

Re: The RNR text mode file manager

Unfortunately renaming projects is not an easy task, and I already searched for 2 or 3 letter commands that would not conflict with each other before deciding to name my project rnr.

Maybe you can package it as rnr-fm for Arch, in order to avoid conflicts?

Just an idea.

I like the idea behind the rnrmc name, but I'm for short, as I said 2 or 3 character names, especially for a tool that you use everyday, like a file manager.

Re: The RNR text mode file manager

A quick update on the naming:
I tried packaging rnr with python-pypi2pkgbuild, and the resulting package name would be python-rnr, thus conflicting with the already packaged rnr only if both are installed at the same time.

Its PKGBUILD file can be seen here:

https://gist.github.com/bugnano/21f5871 … dbaa792097

There is also the fuzzyfinder dependency, which has not been packaged yet, and its PKGBUILD file is here:

https://gist.github.com/bugnano/c0dd54d … e61c484deb

If someone wants to become a packager for RNR I would gladly appreciate it wink

Re: The RNR text mode file manager

For anyone wanting to become a package maintainer for RNR, I suggest to copy rnr.sh in /etc/profile.d and rnr.fish in /etc/fish/functions somewhere in the PKGBUILD, so that there is one less step to configure.

Re: The RNR text mode file manager

Good news everyone, I have a gift from the Befana for you:
The RNR file manager is now packaged in the AUR with the name rnr-fm
Get it while it's hot, and don't forget to vote wink
