Hi all,

Due to the lack of a built-in file manager on Harmattan I have been developing a native-look file manager over the last couple of weeks. The goal was to make something that looked like it was shipped with the OS and replicated the ease of use of a desktop file manager (eg, no marking files, hitting copy and then having to trawl through a custom folder menu -- with this app you simply hit 'Copy', navigate to the destination and tap 'Copy Here').

Key features are:
  • Simple to use with a native look and feel (light and dark theme)
  • 'Copy/paste' methodology for copying and moving files (no trawling through a seperate folder menu)
  • Flexible options on error or duplicate file
  • Smart icons and image previews
  • Share files using the system share menu (thanks to Bulfaiter for assistance with this)



It will also soon have text viewing/editing, archive viewing and cloud-storage attachment. The app is in alpha at the moment so feedback is appreciated! Also make sure you follow the project page as it won't have an update notification until the next version

You can get File Manager here: http://projects.developer.nokia.com/filemanager
And view more screenshots (including some usage tips) here: http://projects.developer.nokia.com/...reenshotsUsage

Cheers,
Nik Rolls

@selfish_russian: This is one of my earlier Qt projects but I've been using it for a few months now so I've developed some best practices which are in play here. Though at the same time I'm experimenting with new things like threading, so it's all a learning process!
@youmeego: I'll definitely be doing more apps after this. One which is almost ready to launch in alpha is a Mediaportal remote control app, and I also have a home automation project planned. Something like Emoji looks quite advanced in terms of platform integration but I won't say no

If you anyone can think of features you'd like for this File Manager app let me know here or on the Projects page. Likewise if you find bugs (I know there are a few which need some work in figuring out how to reproduce them) -- these are best in the Ticketing system on Projects.

Thanks for your support
Nik

Great work!
Thank you very much!

Are you also going to put up the sources, so other developers can learn from it?

Just tried it, great work!

My wishes from initial usage:

- Option to show hidden files
- When going up the directory tree, remember the scroll view position
