The definitive UI / explorer
« on: May 26, 2019, 01:57:57 PM »
Solution to the endless discussion: Zune vs MUI. The best UI/explorer I've seen is Workbench explorer

How hard (or easy) would it be to port it to AROS?

Sources should be open, to begin with. Are them freely available anywhere?

Don't think so, but his author (Mark Ritter) promised to create an Aros version at some point, maybe he is lacking time, or had some issue with an aros dev package, but he can be reached at mritter0@gmail.com and at amigans usually, and I think he is one of the best devs around, so it would be very interesting and useful to convince him to develop for Aros, specially Icaros ABI_1 64bits

hi x-vision

and a good application, but as a magellan file manager I think it is the best you have on amiga, among other things, paolone has created ad hoc configurations for example to convert an audio or pdf file to png and other.

all the best

Hi Salvatore,

Anyway many people (myself included) don't like dir opus very much, because even it is very powerful, it is not very confortable, it is not quick, easy and intuitive to use. That's why I brought in the first place the endless discussion about which file manager to use, as it seems many people feel the same problem, and some even expresed they don't use Aros because they don't feel confortable with the UI. I find workbench explorer a lot better and more confortable than dir opus in many areas.

Cheers!
