About The Project

Jaya File Manager is a .NET Core based cross platform file manager application which runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. Its goal is very simple, "Allow browsing and managing of several file systems simultaneously using a single application which should work and look alike on all desktop platforms it supports.".

Application is designed to be plug-able from the ground up i.e. anyone with experience of working with .NET Core will be able to add support for any new storage service by implementing a simple plugin. Support for below mentioned storage services are complete (or planned) as of now. If you would like addition of more storage services, please raise request here.

  • [x] File System
  • [x] Dropbox
  • [x] Google Drive
  • [ ] Apple iCloud Drive (help wanted)

This is an amazing and clever thing by @imnew2game - it's a *cross platform file explorer application* for Windows, Mac and Linux written in .NET Core/C# and Avalonia! SWEET. It's fun to see how people build things like this.
