termux (on Android) offers a surprising number of these programs. I use mc, mpd+ncmpcpp, and w3m when necessary.

Among the many others I use udevil (automounting usb drives) +midnight commander (manipulation of files). So I do not need a graphical file managers at all.

^Just tried udevil but i'm getting some errors

Code: Select all
➜  ~ udevil mount /dev/sdc1
udevil: warning 24: unable to run setfacl (/usr/bin/setfacl)
udevil: warning 25: setfacl on /media/lnx failed, falling back to 'user:root rwx------'
Mounted /dev/sdc1 at /media/lnx/Debian 9.4.0 amd64 n


Is there some configuration needed for it to work ?

It does not require additional configuration. For me this guy works out of the box. As regular user, i just run
Code: Select all
udevil mount /dev/name_of_your_usb_stick
and it mount usb drive. By the way, in your output it shows, that drive mounted successfully (sorry for my bad English). Here additional info.

i wouldn't call it a "replacement" for man:
  1. it gets its pages online; man pages are on your machine and always available.
  2. you probably wouldn't want to remove the extensive information available in man pages
that said, it looks extremely useful (focused on usage examples) and seems to have a strong community.
trying it out now.

tl;dr: do not "replace" man.
