A File Manager for macOS.

get it

Marta is a file manager for macOS. It is native, extensible and amazingly fast. It is still in public alpha, though I use it everyday working on Kotlin and it already saved me lots of time.

Marta is a pretty blatant copy of (my) file manager, which was here a few weeks ago. Marta's author has been on fman's mailing list since Nov 2016.

@m_herrmann I don't know how to define the "copy". Marta works faster, weights lighter and has a much more native experience than fman.
@yanex_ru @m_herrmann Says the author. got any benchmarks?

@hvllows It's the situation when benchmarks are just redundant. fman is written in PyQt – it makes the app cross-platform but at the cost of interface responsiveness. It's all about the UI: fman launches for about 1.5 seconds on my MacBook Pro 2016, lists have a huge lag on scrolling on retina displays, drag-drop is also lagging.

@yanex_ru @charlieirish Looks very much like fman. Are there any plans for making this file manager cross platform?
Yan ZhMaker@yanex_ru · Software Developer, JetBrains
@ishu3101 There are no such plans. The goal is to make an awesome file manager for macOS.
@yanex_ru That's a shame. Does it support tabs? What languages can be used to create plugins?
Yan ZhMaker@yanex_ru · Software Developer, JetBrains
@ishu3101 I don't think so. I think that cross-platform applications almost never become as good as the native ones. Marta does not support tabs yet, but the feature is on the TODO list ( For now, you can open additional windows. You can write plugins in Swift, here's the API:
