  • Double Commander – Changes in version 1.1.0
    If you're on Mac, you might also want to try Forklift – by coincidence, they just release major version 4 yesterday. - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Total Commander
    There are couple which will have two panels by default, but in my opinion, ForkLift is very native macOS commander-like app -- - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Finder alternatives for performance?
    Forklift is what I use though never with that many files in a single directory. I know I have used it for ones that had 1000+ files with no slowness. It has a free trial so give it a try. Source: 9 months ago
  • DESKTOP2 – A Graphical User Interface for DOS
    Heh, I've been there as well a decade ago when switching from windows to macos. Far manager was also the first program I'd also install on any box. I can assure you, this will eventually pass :) To be fair, far is also not a match to modern file browsers like (forklift), especially if you need s3 integration etc. - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • Software Developer Mac Apps
    `cask "forklift"` [link][paid] for any time I need work with remote / local files or folders. Source: 9 months ago
  • Mountpoint – file client for S3 written in Rust, from AWS
    ForkLift also lets you mount S3 as a drive. - Source: Hacker News / 12 months ago
  • Boomer Wants to Learn Mac
    I switched from Windows to Mac, back in 2011, and haven't looked back since! Windows Vista was the absolute worst and Windows 7 wasn't much better. They turned me off Windows forever. One of the annoying things for me when I first switched was the way the macOS Finder worked, especially when it comes to merging files/folders from one location to another existing location. For most file operations now, I use an... Source: 12 months ago
  • No longer know how to use Windows
    Two things recently installed that are mind blowing: Lasso App and Forklift App. Source: 12 months ago
  • Finder functionality lacking?
    Otherwise the advice was fine. I used PathFinder until version 7 when it got quite buggy (and then went subscription). I now use ForklLift and QSpace. Source: about 1 year ago
  • App to auto-copy files to cloud storage like quicksand?
    But even though I love Hazel, I suspect you might be more interested in something like Forklift while this does support cloud storage out of the box and is able to sync all by itself. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How do I, once and for all, SET ALL of Finders folders and subfolders to the same view and sort order?
    Forklift (link) is a Finder replacement. It will do everything you're asking, and more, to remember sorting and viewing options on a per-directory basis. Source: about 1 year ago
  • KDE beats macOS hands down
    I use forklift as my main file manager, it has a lot of power user features, and a button to open terminal in the current folder is one of them – - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Double Commander
    I've been happily using Forklift for years. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Must Have Apps, Free or Paid -
    Transmit: Upload, download, and manage files on tons of servers (I also use Forklift as backup). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Need a Rename Utility
    If you’re coming from Windows you might like the TotalCommander »clone« called ForkLift. It has powerful bulk renaming with RegEx support built-in. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What are your favorite hidden gem Mac apps?
    ForkLift 3 ($19.95 for 1 year updates) - Dual pane file manager with FTP and batch rename. Source: over 1 year ago
  • App for connecting to S3 with config
    I don't know about importing a config, but you can use Forklift to mount an S3 Bucket as a share - Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Best OFM for MacOs?
    I'm using ForkLift, it even offers (optionally) all the old Norton-/Total-Commander shortcuts. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Recommendation for productivity and programming apps for MacBook Pro?
    TickTick - for tasks and [basic] project management, great tool - Miro - for diagrams, mind maps, collaboration, presentations - ReadKit - for latest news and stay informed - Bartender - to arrange icons in the menubar, not free, but worth it - Syncthing - to auto sync files between any devices, most happy with this one! -... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • The Macbook Air experience
    Try ForkLift - as a replacement for Finder. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Looking for Path Finder alternatives after they went to $30/yr subscription
    1 Upvote for ForkLift! I've used for years, it's UI is so much better than Path Finder. Source: about 2 years ago

10 Best FTP Clients for WordPress Users (Mac and Windows)
ForkLift only works for Mac users, so Windows and Linux folks should look at some of the other FTP clients. As for choosing ForkLift based on features, consider it if you’d like access to many remote connections, some of which include Google Drive, SMB, and NFS. This is also a premium software, so if you don’t want to pay for an FTP client then you need to look for something else.
