    Sunflower is Open Source, twin panel, small and highly customizable File Manager for Linux with plugins support. Sunflower main purpose is to create powerful and easy use of file manager. Sunflower is developed in python language.

    Krusader has been my favorite file manager going back for a long time. I installed it regardless of what environment I was in but now Sunflower is taking that spot. Between the plugin support, embedding a terminal in the file manager, command bar, and renaming features I love it. The developer has been working on it for years and it's still in alpha/betaish development phase.

    Check it out and reply.

    I use the SolusOS patched Nautilus File Manager in eos to get a working desktop. The native Pantheon Files Manager lacks right-click functionality.

    Sunflower looks interesting. I've always found Linux file managers to be lacking so hopefully this delivers.

    It is really a lightweight file manager with Krusader-like features but less clutter.
    For me nautilus was really good a few short years ago, but you'll have to disable all the preview features for it to be even useful now.
