Roberts a modest man so I’ll do the boasting for him.


Also relevant: Nnn integration

nnn is great! The core of the file-manager is written in C, but you extend it with shell-script plugins. For example, a lot of file managers have a preview split built-in, but nnn accomplishes this with a plugin.

This means that nnn is not only one of the fastest file managers, but it’s also one of the easiest to write plugins for because you can use scripts (just like kak)!
