ComputerCraft Commander

Maybe Not the first two-columned file manager



What is this?
The ComputerCraftCommander is maybe the first two-columned file manager for ComputerCraft. It is orientated at Norton Commander which is a file manager for DOS. The design is not the most beautiful but it should look like the original Norton Commander.

How does this work?
It is quite simple: You have to columns. You can change between these two columns with TAB. Use the arrow keys to move up and down. Press F5 to copy a file from the active column to the inactive column. Press F6 to move a file from the active to the inactive column. You can give it a new file name while using this. Press F7 to create a new folder. Press F8 to delete the selected file or folder. Press F10 to quit. You can also type "exit" and press return to quit.

Screenshot?
Yes, Sir.

Download?

Well, I can confirm that it isn't the first, but it may be the first one done in color for ComputerCraft. You may want to re-think the color scheme though, that green-on-blue is very low contrast. It would probably be easier to read with white text.

Yes, I already thought about that. I used this color scheme because it looks more like the original Norton Commander but I am already working on a menu where you can change the color scheme.

I like this - big NC user back in the day. I have a couple pieces of feedback for ya...

Mouse selection in each pane (and for the button bar) would be a nice addition.

Would you consider clearing the screen on exit? Right now the exit isn't very elegant. (I don't remember what NC did on exit)

Thanks for this :)

Thank you for the feedback.
Mouse support is planned.
The original NC by the way exited just to the shell with a little ascii symbol window saying something like "Thanks for using Norton Commander". I could implement that even if it is not very useful, it might make CCC a little bit more like NC.

Thank you for this clone of Norton Commander! Also, can I use it in my OS/Rescue Disk?
