Ghost Commander feature requests

  1. Add a GUI directory selector in Copy/Move and Save As dialogs

    The Copy/Move dialog displays the destination directory, which by default is set to the directory of the opposite panel as in all orthodox file managers The destination can be changed in the dialog, however, only by manual input. There is no way to select a directory via GUI. There is a similar problem with the Save As dialog in the editor. I suggest to add to these dialogs an option for a GUI directory selector. Out of curiosity, I checked Total Commander on Android, and it has a GUI selector in these dialogs. The best option for a GUI selector…

  3. Support to creat FTP server

    The ability to create FTP servers like "Primitive FTPd" as an add-on. I would be nice to be able to create one on demand.

  4. Spacemacs or VS Code theme for Ghost Command

    The theme collection in GC is not wide for any taste for better or worst or as I put it better it's quiet narrow. However making changes to the looks is very easy but a couple of pre-prepared themes would be nice. My point being everyone I talked about (an oral poll in computer department actually) likes or feel neutral toward Spacemacs or VSCode default theme. So I believe it would be a good progress to make the software look nicer.

  5. Be able to access free space left on any "storage device"

    Would be great to be able to know what is the available remaining free space on each "storage device" for instance on the "home/start page"

  6. Show files/folder's Creation time not only the "Last modified" time.

    Currently only the "Last modified" time is shown. Need also to show the Creation time.

  8. Search file result should display path (e.g. in Info)

    You can search for files in GhostCommander by name pattern, using *.
    This is a very useful feature.

    When you search for files you get a list of files as result.
    In the result list, each file is displayed with name size and age.
    Each file has an Info context menu popup window that displays hashsums of the file, apart from repeating the name and the size.

    The Info popup does not display the path of the file.

    The only option to retrieve the path of a file (I found) is the copy name and paste into an editor.
    I…

  9. I want to be able to stop people from hacking in backgrounds in phone

    I feel for the person that has been hacked nothing worse the having a new phone and someone else just using it for there on data or whatever the reason but it would be nice to just put something in the search bar and lock them to your phone but disable it. After 3 months I have thought how is this possible factory reset ass they you last password and then your done wants they have access to it.

  10. Create a way for file conversion detection and automation. This could and would solve two major frustrations for end users.

    First, create a way to detect a playlist stored and owned by an end user. For example, If one had a playlist in the format of an m3u with movies and or television channels and or old home videos on it stored on their hard drive and Ghost Commander could recognize it, and then automate a process that could copy and then convert the playlist into a beautiful XMLTV file also known as an EPG..

      In the world of IoT and 5G, Wifi 6 and so much more...Imagine planning a family reunion where guests could enter and view the night's

  12. Deduplication

    I just had a need to find and move/delete duplicate files in a folder and tapped around to see if you already could. Sure would be nice 😊

  13. Set correct Timestamp on files copied to internal storage (in root mode, Android 7 and prior))

    Problem: on all Android versions 7 and prior that use FUSE, a well known bug exists that causes the timestamp on all files copied to internal storage to be set to current OS time. And it's not possible to change any file attributes without root privileges.

    Solution: on phones where root is present, explicitly set the timestamp on each copied file to that of the source file after each copy operation. This behavior would be consistent with pretty much every OS in existance. Ideally if possible this should be done universally on all copy operations as long as root is…

  14. Timestamp preservation upon copy

    Copying a file should leave file creation as it is, i.e. like the source for the copy. Since sometimes this might not be wanted, it could be feature toggle "preserve timestamp yes/no". Thanks

  15. Edit file properties

    I would like to have dialog like Total Commander has to manipulate a file's properties. In TC when you open file properties, you can manipulate for instance file creation/modification date and time stamps. VERY useful if copying ruined your timestamp.... Thanks!

  16. Add support for Ed25519 keys on SFTP

    As some sites require Ed25519 keys, it would be nice if Ghost Commander's SFTP plugin adds support for this new algorithm.

  18. Improve ssh key exchange

    I've got my server locked down pretty tight for ssh key exchanges, since some of the older protocols have security issues. The SFTP plugin doesn't appear to support them. I get the following message and ghost commander just sits saying "wait..."

    My server says:
    sshd[31951]: Unable to negotiate with <ipaddress> port 40118: no matching key exchange method found. Their offer: diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1,diffie-hellman-group14-sha1,diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 [preauth]

  19. Schduled task or automation

    Add automation features like scheduling tasking. For example, user can create a flow to copy files from device folder into network folder or cloud drive. This would help to backup photos quicker and automatically.

  20. Dual-Screen support

    LG recently made some phones (V50, V60, G8X) that you can extend with a secondary display and view them side-by-side.
    Ghost Commander is a perfect example where this dual-screen setup could be useful.
    However the app needs to support this "wide-view" feature, otherwise it can only be displayed on one of the screens.
