File Manager Terminal Tools

Terminal-based file managers enable streamlined file organization and manipulation through text commands, offering a robust, lightweight and quick solution compared to graphical counterparts.


Below are a list of terminal tools that developers use for managing files in the terminal.

  1. broot - A new way to see and navigate directory trees.
  1. duf - Disk Usage/Free Utility - a better 'df' alternative.
  1. kupo - A terminal file manager / browser, kupo!
  1. lf - A terminal file manager which "lists files".
  1. xplr - A hackable, minimal, fast TUI file explorer
