Worker — graphical two-pane file Manager for the X Window System.

The development Worker started Ralph Hoffman (Ralf Hoffmann) in 1999 year, the prototype project was a commercial file Manager Directory Opus for Amiga (developed by GPSoftware).

File Manager Worker written in C++ using only the standard X11library xlib library and avfsused for virtual file system, direct access to FTPsites and working with archives.

Worker provides the classic two pane interface (classical two-panel-view) to view the file system, you can create tabs, add tabs, is the story (for quick access), device mounting, color highlighting groups of files, create labels for files and groups of files.

Settings Worker are numerous and are made from the GUI (options dialog), and can also be set by direct edit of the configuration file (~/.worker/config), the settings are applied without restarting the file Manager. File type determined by extension or content, it is possible to specify your own masks to the file content.

Worker searches for files in simple and advanced mode, it is possible to search the contents of files. Using inotify (a kernel subsystem of Linux) allows you to track changes in the file system in “real-time” re-drawing the contents of the file Manager window when you change files and directories by third party applications.

Worker has built-in tools for viewing text and image files, if you wish, you can use an external application. Any external application easily integrates with file Manager using the “buttons” and keyboard combinations. It is possible to create “button groups“, among which you can switch with the mouse on the “status line“.

The office Worker is using a custom context menu and through a multitude of custom “buttons“located at the bottom of the application window. Each “button” calls a separate function, it is possible to assign different actions for left and right mouse button on one of the “buttons“.

Worker has a high working speed and low system requirements in comparison with many other file managers, fully support Unicode (Unicode) and has a flexible bind commands to keyboard combinations (hot keys).
