ranger is a console file manager with VI key bindings.

It provides a minimalistic and nice curses interface with a view on the directory hierarchy. It ships with rifle, a file launcher that is good at automatically finding out which program to use for what file type.


Moving to Libera.Chat

On May 19, Freenode staff lost their control of the network. This has been developing for a while and staffers set up Libera.Chat in case it happened. Foss revolves around people volunteering their time, as did the Freenode network. We have decided to move the #ranger channel because we believe the volunteer staffers have our best interests at heart.

The king is dead, long live the king!

Finally, the much requested feature to integrate ranger with docker has been implemented! Simply install docker and type:

Et voilà! You now can enjoy ranger in a freshly baked docker container! :)
