Support fzf and/or act as Broot
« on: November 18, 2023, 12:10:27 »
Hello,

First thank you for this excellent program that I use since many years.
Navigating in the different folders of my PC would be a lot easier if I could use something like fzf (https://github.com/junegunn/fzf) or a system like Broot (https://dystroy.org/broot/).
First, I do everything with my keyboard so I'd like to have a shortcut to open a popup/window/modal where I will just have to type a few words to navigate into my PC folders.
For example, typing, just "sys32" will propose me c:\windows\system32.

It could be also available in the search, the one we can can use on the bottom right of each tab.

Hope you will consider a such feature, tell me if you need more information but Broot is an excellent example of what we could have in MultiCommander.

Bye,
Hervé

You can type commands in the command line field like "cd <path>"  or other things..
And then with Alias in Menu > Configuration > manage Alias

You can define a text that you write in the command line field. and what that should be translated into..
So for example you can create an alias "sys32" that do "cd c:\Windows\System32"
