Finger Xp

90 posts in this topic

Finger XP is some sort of Finder clone. It's not an add-on for Explorer, but a file browser on it's own.

It's missing lots of features yet, such as:

  • Drag and drop.
  • Create new folder.
  • Cut, copy and paste files.
  • Rename files/folders.
  • Delete file/folders.
  • Quicklook is not like that with folders and non-picture/pdf/document/video files.
  • Quicklook-clone should allow to play videos, etc...
  • Indeed quicklook should be a separate app :) (hey that's a good idea!)
  • CoverFlow-like view should be hardware accelerated (OpenGL + P-Buffers?)
  • res/coverflowLoading.png should be inside Test1.exe file
  • Test1.exe should be FingerXP.exe instead.
  • Finger XP should use same process with separate threads, to open different windows (for less resource consumption).
  • etc...

Questions:

Here in this thread. Your feature requests will mostly be silently ignored until I can get more base functionality done.

Very promissing (Finger XP)!! Will it work on Vista too? For now it's freezing except for its default view (thumbnails)...

I'll eagerly await for it! :)

That's pretty amazing! With matonga's apps you could build up a perfect leopard clone.

Yeah I know, he has expose clone, finder clone, and many more. I won't even need to buy a Mac if he continues.

(No, I'll still buy a Mac, but you get the point), he he

Great Job Matonga!

Matonga your app is really great, thanks for all your work.

Have you ever thought of releasing an application like the quicklook provided on FingerXP?

It would be great to replace the windows picture viewer with something like that, is it possible?

Nice Finder Clone. I just have one problem, when I try to enter the coverflow mode it freezes, is there a solution to this?

I'd bet you're running Vista too, ain't you?

Great Work Matonga, Its fantastic but another Finder Clone??? Coming Soon we will see more "Finders" than Agents Smith :

I belive that already we have a Finder For Windows....

Tom´s Findexer+Ksoft´s Toolbar+Mac*(Cursors+Icons)+a great Visual Style

We would only need to have a "Quick look" or "CoverFlow"

Also, with Findexer you don't have drop down menus you can't get any of the views(including the new cover-flow view Matonga's working on). Even though there are a lot of Finder Clone's available, there is only one that can do what Matonga's can, and he's barely even started working on it.

Details^^

I also prefer the Explorer with Addons and i would love to see Coverflow in it. Because the Explorer is very deep in XP integrated and i don´t think it can replaced with a tool like "FingerXP". Only a complete Shell-Replacement will be do this... (Cairo?^^)

But nice and fast Preview, Mantoga ;)
