- tab system: fully implemented
- using the system icon theme: done
- top left button: go to the upper folder: fully implemented
- top right button: history of all opened folders: fully implemented
- the two buttons in the middle of the picture: show hidden items and search for files and folders: fully implemented
- at the bottom of the picture: a new tab appears when the search button is pressed: the searching for files and folders is fully implemented.

What are the dependencies?

Also, where's the source?

A lot of smaller projects like rox file manager, even thunar and caja could use more manpower. You can also choose any other project, I'm sure they could use someone skilled enough with ideas to improve their software. Someone who can review the code, fix bugs, add UI tweak, things like that.

I'm making some programs for myself, and at cost of a few more lines of code they could be useful to some users too. I'm not interested in being part of any group.

The source code is in my PC. :) At the moment the program isn't usable because it lack of the right-mouse button menu. All you can see in the pictures has been implemented (plus most of the recicle bin functionality today).
Very little dependencies: python3, Gtk3, and a couple of python modules every distro have in they repo.

i did ask op about that a while back.
it seems they haven't quite grasped the concept of FOSS.
i'm certainly not going to click a mediafire zip file to find out what it contains...
honourable intentions, just a little misguided? or needy of attention (yet not really sharing)?

The source code is always the source code, even at mediafire.
The program is written in python, so everybody can watch it.
At the moment the program is at early stage of development, yet not usable at all.
When it will be ready for a preview, I'll upload the code somewhere.

A new step forward:

http://oi66.tinypic.com/okx2zr.jpg

- Recycle Bin (Cestino for me): 'Empty recycle bin' contextual entry added
- added a button for inverting the selection
- main program: added link icon (at the moment it appears on the folder icons, just to make sure it is always at the right position at different icon size)
- custom colors for highlighted and selected items
- other things.

I've uploaded just a preview of the program, exactly like in the picture below (it is it):
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ietqij311 ... 1.zip/file

Here is the screenshot of the program I've uploaded:
http://oi66.tinypic.com/24opq1h.jpg

This is the skeleton of my project.
The program opens a sample folder at startup.
What has been implemented:
- tabs: close, change position
- recycle bin
- searching
- permissions
- checksums
- invert the selection
- go to upper folder
- history of opened folders
- show the hidden items
- open the folders on the left panel
- can open a folder passes as argument, or open the folder and select the file passed as argument
- etc.

Require: Python3, Gtk3, and a couple of python modules all distros have in their repos.

For me it is better reinventing the wheel. And I do what I want.

Almost two months since the last post here.
The program is going on very well.
Features added:
- recycle bin: the program can empty the recycle bin of each partition independently from the others, e.g. the program can empty the home trash and leave the usb drive trash filled;
- thumbnails: support for file preview following the freedesktop line; can delete the stored preview of no more existent files, instead of doing it manually;
- many many other things.

The work is still in progress:
- added drag and drop support;
- added complete popup menus;
- added support for custom scripts.

Now I've stopped develop the program and started its revision, in other words, rewriting. :cry:

Finally, I've completed the rewriting of the program (the browsing part, not yet everything). I've integrated all of the features I hoped to, leaving it fast and lite: the mouse menus (all traditional operations) and actions, drag and drop, etc. And: fully customizable actions in the menus (also at what position), the ability to add some custom file or folder info other then their name under the icon, the ability to abort the copy or cut operation, custom thumbnailers. I still need some work on the program for a preview release (also on GitHub).

I finished to implement in the program everything. I have still to add a couple of features, then I'll release the first rc.

I've released the first complete release of the program, marked as beta1.
https://github.com/frank038/My-File-Manager/tree/master
It has all the features I need, and it is highly customizable.
I'm proud of this my program :cry:
