This project aims to make a file make a
full featured file manager for the Gnome desktop environment. The Aardvark
File Manager will be a quick, extensible and highly usable file manager which
will integrate natively in Gnome and will have some support of KDE to. Its
user interface will assemble feathers form both Nautilus and Konqueror and
some of our own ideas.
It will differ form Nautilus by its speed which will be a key feature
and by a great usability (ease of use). Further more it will have a better
handling of the Gnome
mime types and at some extent support for KDE
The project will be written in plain C and it will use the GTK
widget set, the bonobo
component framework (to ensure extendibility) and probably GTK pixbuf library
(for icon rendering).
