Finder app using ruby curses widgets

leave a comment »

After some work on a TODO app, which used editable tables and other widgets, I have started a sort of Finder app with 2 panes, like Midnight Commander. Shows how easy it is to put up something with minimal code using the Listbox widget.

This will also use the TextView for viewing files, TextArea for editing files (or your EDITOR). The aim of this application, as was the aim of the TODO, is to see how well the widgets fare when we use them for something useful.
Here’s a very rough pic, will keep updating this link as things improve.
