Nimble Commander Pro

1.2.6
24 August 2019

Minimalist dual-pane file manager (was Files Pro).

Overview

Nimble Commander Pro (was Files Pro) is a modern file manager designed specifically for Mac computers. It is built with efficiency in mind, providing blazing performance and immediate user-interface feedback. On other hand, Files exploits the classic dual-pane ideology and traditional hotkeys layout, while maintaining a clean, minimalist UI design.

Features:
  • Classic dual-pane interface: Files delivers full keyboard access with the fastest way to handle file-management tasks.
  • Efficiency: Files starts almost instantly. It has a small memory footprint and it works blazingly fast.
  • Uninterrupted experience: Most of Files' work is done in the background, allowing users to focus on their tasks without unnecessary interruptions.
  • Built-in file-attributes editor and file viewer with textual/hexadecimal presentation.
  • External editors integration, including native apps and terminal ones.
  • Searching for files with file mask, filtering by file size and containing text.
  • Archives building and browsing them as regular folders.
  • Built-in terminal emulator.

What's new in Nimble Commander Pro

Version 1.2.6:
  • Internal Viewer got a new implementation which is more performant and stable.
  • Compress operation now provides an option to protect a target archive with a password.
  • Find Files sheet got an option to search for files which do not contain some text.
  • New action "Copy Item Directory": Shift+Alt+Cmd+C.
  • QuickLook icons are now generated only for files with extensions conforming to a whitelist of UTIs. By default, this list includes "public.image", "public.movie" and "public.audio".
  • Popup menus (F1/F2 and quick lists: Cmd+1..5) can now switch to other menus by hitting their hotkeys.
  • Dragging items to the Trash now deletes them as expected.
  • The in-place renaming editor now flickers less and is more responsive.
  • Fixed an issue with incompatible SSH key types.
  • Fixed the built-in terminal's issue of invalid scroll position after switching to file panels and back.
  • Fixed an issue with an invalid placing of the Sharing popup.
  • Lots of other bugfixes and internal improvements.

Requirements for Nimble Commander Pro

Using Nimble Commander for over a year now. Of all the Finder replacements Nimble Commander Pro is te one I like best. It is very fast, very stable and a pleasure to use. One of the best if not the best file manager you can buy.

New update seems more stable, even a little faster, and judging from the support forum discussions, new functionality will keep on coming. Love this file manager. Every time I return to the Finder it's a big yuk. ;) NOTE FOR FUTURE USERS: you need to buy a Pro license from the magnumbytes store, i.e. do not buy the app on the Mac App Store, the reason in the latter case being sandboxing and restricted functionality, no admin mode etc.

I rely on NC every day, at work and at home, since over 2 years. Like most users who look for a dual panel file manager, I came from the Windows world and used Total Commander for a long time. Before discovering NC, I tried PathFinder, Commander One, CRAX and others. They feel sluggish, have a bloated UI and just don't feel like a true TC replacement. NC is easily the closest thing to TC on the Mac. The program is constantly updated, the author is really dedicated and responsive and there is a steadily growing community on the support forum. If you are looking for a true TC replacement on the Mac, try out NC.

I think it is the best file manager for keyboard fans like me. By using this app, you can easily execute any file operation smoothly without leaving the keyboard at tremendous speed. It also includes lots of powerful tools and function under a simple interface. And it is very customizable, I can add my own tools, pin my favorite apps to toolbar, choose my own editor and many many more. So, It is my favorite file manager by far, highly recommended.

By far the best of the orthodox file managers for macOS: fast, snappy browsing, lots of power user functionality, Services integration in the contextual menu, huge amount of keyboard shortcuts for all those functions, many ways to configure it yourself etc. I tested many others, and they are either still too close to the Finder (incl. lots of bloat) like PathFinder, comparably little functionality like Commander One, buggy prereleases like FastCommander and Newton Commander, and ugly GUIs like DoubleCommander. Sure, some of the above have functions that would be nice to have in Nimble Commander, like the sidebar in DoubleCommander, but the overall file managing experience is best in Nimble Commander. As for speed, nothing can beat Rixstep Xfile, but it has too little functionality; FastCommander has nice browsing speed too, but it isn't quite there yet. I'm not giving Nimble Commander the full 5 stars, because there is still lots of room for improvement, e.g. archiving support for formats other than just zip, built-in SMB, AFP and NFS support etc., but even in it's current stage Nimble Commander (to me) is the best one out there.

I think it's powerful manager. There are a flexible search, mass rename and 100+ hotkeys.

Yeah, it looked promising when it first came out. But now I just have to say no thanks and keep using XtraFinder.

IMHO, this statement is not particularly helpful and doesn't qualify as a review.
