nnn Terminal File Manager v3.4 Released With Icon-Specific Colors

nnn (n³) is a full-featured terminal file manager which provides a text-based user interface to provide file managing functionalities.

Above all, nnn is a fast, lightweight command line file manager that works seamlessly with desktop environments and GUI utilities. Besides file manager features (with tabs/workspaces, bookmarks, search, and so on), the tool also includes some other utilities, like a disk usage analyzer and a fuzzy application launcher.

The file manager was created to run on low-power devices, such as Raspberry Pi or Termux, so its size and memory footprint are a priority. The developer Arun Prakash forked it from another project called noice.
