nnn (or ) is a full-featured terminal file manager. It's tiny and nearly 0-config with an incredible performance.

nnn can analyze disk usage, batch rename, launch apps and pick files. The plugin repository has tons of plugins and documentation to extend the capabilities further, e.g. preview hovered, (un)mount disks, find & list, file/dir diff, upload files. There's an independent (neo)vim plugin.

nnn takes no configuration file, but you can set options in your ~/.bashrc. It is very likely that nnn can do what you want already, but perhaps it is not default. Go see the wiki: https://github.com/jarun/nnn/wiki/.

On SailfishOS, nnn is most convenient with a hardware keyboard, but works with the terminals feature a virtual keyboard too. nnn is *very* useful if you often ssh into your device too.
