The Mac File Mananger for Coders

Those missing Total Commander from Windows: you have found your answer. Fast, keyboard-centric, preview-in-opposite-panel, customizable editors, customizable previewers, responsive develoer, etc… I’ve tried every dual-pane file manager on Mac I could find. With Nimble Commander Pro, I finally quit cursing my file managers and let out a deep, contented sigh.
