Worker

Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.

Recent releases

    Release Notes: This release adds a breadcrumb navigation for faster access to previous and parent directories. The copy dialog optionally remains open after completion. The ".." entry can be displayed again. The free space check for the copy operation has been fixed in case invalid values are returned by the OS. Some minor other issues have been fixed and the translations have been updated.

      Release Notes: The copy operation can now be continued in background. There is a new command to cycle backwards through the directory cache to access directories previously visited. The persistent store of used files and directories now can optionally also store all files used for external commands for faster access. Some minor other issues have been fixed and the translations have been updated.

        Release Notes: This release adds a new "flatten_dir" command to show all files in a flat list. The filter select command now selects the best matching pattern by default. The path jump command also stores the accessed file in the database. The extended file type test supports checking for broken symlinks. Some bugs have been fixed.

        •  20 Jan 2014 21:31

          Release Notes: This release improves the path jump dialog. It is now possible to hold entries which matches a given filter and then refine the filter only for those entries. The matching entries can be panelized in the list view. The command menu now also temporarily highlights the button which corresponds to the current entry in the menu. The start prog interface has been improved to support command history and command completion. The left and right cursor keys allow navigation within a virtual directory. Some minor bugs have been fixed.

          •  16 Dec 2013 20:01

            Release Notes: The command menu has been improved to show assigned shortkeys and to list entries about accessing list modes and their configuration. Registered commands are also available in the command menu. The matching characters for a string filter are highlighted in the bookmark, path jump UI, and the list view. The search operation can also be started from a virtual directory. The estimation of the remaining time for file copy has been fixed if elements have been renamed. Some other minor bugs have also been fixed.

            Are there any example config files available to download?

            I used to use DirectoryOpus on all my Amiga's and would love to be able to use Worker on my Linux systems.

            Having trouble getting FTP buttons to work. Any help appreciated!

            Thanks!

            Thanks for Worker
            Hi,

            Just wanted to say thanks for improving this great program.

            I use it everyday since 4 or 5 years now.

            Can't really imagine working without Worker anymore.

            And you keep updating it and making it even better while it was already near perfect to start with.

            Nice!
            Long Live AMIGA.

            The system that just refuses to die.
