Marta is a pretty blatant copy of (my) file manager https://fman.io, 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?
Yan ZhulanowMaker@yanex_ru · Software Developer, JetBrains
@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 ZhulanowMaker@yanex_ru · Software Developer, JetBrains
@ishu3101 There are no such plans. The goal is to make an awesome file manager for macOS.
Ishan@ishu3101
@yanex_ru That's a shame. Does it support tabs? What languages can be used to create plugins?
Yan ZhulanowMaker@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. Tabs are supported since Marta 0.2: https://marta.yanex.org/marta-02.... You can write plugins in Swift, here's the API: https://marta.yanex.org/api/inde...
