Midnight commander is easy and intuitive to use. The most common commands are displayed in the bottom (move, copy, paste, delete, edit, view, make directory).

Ranger allows the use of various scripts for calling on individual or multiple files, for file previews, or for other operations. In commands.py the "my_edit"-function can be extended to do whatever in python can be done. Target files can be the file under the cursor (self.fm.thisfile.path), the files marked/selected in the current tab (self.fm.thistab.get_selection() ) and the files in the copy-buffer (add/remove: ya, yr) (respectively the delete-buffer: add/remove da/dr) (both: self.fm.copy_buffer). The most appropriate list of files can be found out automatically, like so: if self.fm.copy_buffer: for file in self.fm.copy_buffer: ... elif self.fm.thistab.get_selection(): for file in self.fm.thistab.get_selection(): ... else: file = self.fm.thisfile.path ...

Too bad ... a great idea with the 3 Smart Columns, but why would anyone prefer to need to learn 30 commands in order to cut and paste or copy a file or folder, or to see/change permissions. See More
