This tui file manager bash script, provides image preview, theme selection, smooth directory navigation, opening files with default and other programs and easy configuring of keybindings. It uses fzf to navigate to and select files and directories. Image rendering can be done with the use of ueberzugpp, ueberzug, kitty terminal or chafa.


The script also provides content preview for directories, and text files:


As one can see in the screenshots, thanks to Nerd Fonts, each type of selection (directory, text file, office document, image file etc) is represented with the respective symbol.

Configuring of preferences can be done through editing a psv file.

Any feedback / suggestion will be appreciated.

      Well, there is just one themes.txt file, created inside .config/basht/ directory. There is no particular reason why it should not be a .txt. Would you suggest another solution?

        .txt would imply the file is just some prose. A theme file might be better named with a .theme extension, so as to better communicate the nature of the file.

          Well, after a quick search, from that source, I found that :

          …A .theme file is a .ini text file that is divided into sections, which specify visual elements that appear on a Windows desktop. Section names are wrapped in brackets ([]) in the .ini file.

          I believe that the themes.txt file has not much to do with the above, furthermore, confusion between the two does not sound a good idea. What is more, one can say that file names such as themes.txt and current_theme.txt are quite descriptive and leave no doubts about their function. However, I think I understand your point of view. Perhaps I would consider renaming these in the future.

            which specify visual elements that appear on a Windows desktop

            So that definition has no weight for Linux -case closed.
