ranger: visual file manager

NAME
ranger - visual file manager
SYNOPSIS
ranger [OPTIONS] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION

Ranger is a file manager with an ncurses frontend written in Python. It is designed to give you a broader overview of the file system by displaying previews and backviews, dividing the screen into several columns. The keybindings are similar to those of other console programs like vim, mutt or ncmpcpp so the usage will be intuitive and efficient.

OPTIONS

--version Print the version and exit. -h, --help Print a list of options and exit. -d, --debug Activate the debug mode: Whenever an error occurs, ranger will exit and print a full backtrace. The default behaviour is to merely print the name of the exception in the statusbar/log and to try to keep running. -c, --clean Activate the clean mode: Ranger will not access or create any configuration files nor will it leave any traces on your system. This is useful when your configuration is broken, when you want to avoid clutter, etc. --copy-config=which Create copies of the default configuration files in your local configuration directory. Existing ones will not be overwritten. Possible values: all, apps, commands, keys, options, scope. --fail-unless-cd Return the exit code 1 if ranger is used to run a file, for example with 'ranger --fail-unless-cd filename'. This can be useful for scripts. -r dir, --confdir=dir Define a different configuration directory. The default is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/ranger (which defaults to ~/.config/ranger) -m n, --mode=n When a filename is supplied, make it run in mode n. Check the documentation for more information on modes. -f flags, --flags=flags When a filename is supplied, make it run with the flags flags. Check the documentation for more information on flags.

USAGE

General Keybindings Many keybindings take an additional numeric argument. Type 5j to move down 5 lines, 10<Space> to mark 10 files or 3? to read the third chapter of the documentation. h, j, k, l Move left, down, up, right ^D or J, ^U or K Move a half page down, up H, L Move back and forward in the history gg Move to the top G Move to the bottom ^R Reload everything ^L Redraw the screen S Open a shell in the current directory yy Yank the selection to the "copy" buffer and mark them as to be copied dd Cut the selection to the "copy" buffer and mark them as to be moved pp Paste the files from the "copy" buffer here (by moving or copying, depending on how they are marked.) By default, this will not overwrite existing files. To overwrite them, use po. mX Create a bookmark with the name X 'X Move to the bookmark with the name X n, N Find the next file, the previous file. You can define what to look for by typing cX. If nothing is specified, pressing n will get you to the newest file in the directory. oX Change the sort method (like in mutt) zX Change settings f Quickly navigate by entering a part of the filename Space Mark a file v, V Toggle the mark-status of all files, unmark all files / Open the search console : Open the command console ? Opens the help screen with more keybindings and documentation Keybindings for using Tabs Tabs are used to work in different directories in the same Ranger instance. gN Open a tab. N has to be a number from 0 to 9. If the tab doesn't exist yet, it will be created. gn, ^N Create a new tab. gt, gT Go to the next or previous tab. You can also use TAB and SHIFT+TAB. gc, ^W Close the current tab. The last tab cannot be closed. Mouse Usage Left Mouse Button Click on something and you'll move there. To run a file, "enter" it, like a directory, by clicking on the preview. Right Mouse Button Enter a directory Scroll Wheel Scroll Commands :delete Destroy all files in the selection with a roundhouse kick. Ranger will ask for a confirmation if you attempt to delete multiple (marked) files or non-empty directories. :rename newname Rename the current file. Also try the keybinding A for appending something to a file name. :quit Quit ranger. The current directory will be bookmarked as ' so you can re-enter it by typing '' or '' the next time you start ranger.

TIPS

Change the directory after exit A script like this in your bashrc would make you change the directory of your parent shell after exiting ranger: ranger() { command ranger --fail-unless-cd $@ && cd "$(grep \^\' ~/.config/ranger/bookmarks | cut -b3-)" }
CONFIGURATION
The files in ranger/defaults/ can be copied into your configuration directory (by default, this is ~/.config/ranger) and customized according to your wishes. Most files don't have to be copied completely though: Just define those settings you want to add or change and they will override the defaults. Color schemes can be placed in ~/.config/ranger/colorschemes. All configuration is done in Python. Each configuration file should contain sufficient documentation.
