lf is the file manager used in MARBS. lf is awesome and makes you look cool even in front of the people who know their shit.

lf uses terminal sixels to display previews in full quality! No weird x11 hacks like ueberzug!


Run lf by pressing MOD(alt) + o, or type press ctrl+o inside the terminal (or just simply type lf there).

lf’s configuration files

The other files in the ~/.config/lf/ directory are run automatically when needed.


Notice that alias lf will tell you that technically you are running the wrapper script lfrun when you run lf. This has to do with sixel previews.
