Shallot is a file manager with the maximum degree of flexibility and customizability.
Unlimited number of file panels
Lots of customization options, e.g.
directory tree can be hidden and is flexible in behavior
lots of view options
while conserving a good usability
It nicely works with convoluted file systems, like editing an image in an archive in another archive on a network drive.
It has a plugin interface which allows one to implement many additional functionality (like new filesystems) with Python scripting, without any compiler hassles.
It is Qt5 based and plays nicely with modern Linux desktops. See the downloads which other operating systems are supported (maybe with a few slight limitations).
shallot is distributed under the terms of the GPLv3 or higher license. This also affects all included files without a license header (non-source files like images), unless they are explicitly mentioned as third-party content. Read the Dependencies section for included third-party stuff.
The following packages are available. Choose the one that matches your operating system or environment. Please also check for requirements. shallot is in production-stable state.
