Rodent Applications

Rodent applications (previously Xffm Code Set) is a set of GTK2/GTK3 applications which use librfm and which avoid reinventing the wheel by using interprocess communication with command line applications. Current applications are: Rodent Filemanager (rodent-fm); Rodent Differences (rodent-diff); Rodent Search Tool (rodent-fgr); a command line search tool (fgr); and an icon theme manager (rodent-iconmgr).
