  1. Support for SSH Authentication API in combination with OpenKeychain to use OpenPGP keys.

    Support authentication subkeys on smart cards and other security tokens (Yubikey) over NFC and USB like TermBot SSH does.

  3. Buttons in bottom menu

    Make Buttons in bottom menu, not just texts.

    Currently the text menu has no clear separation, so can press other menu item accidentally.

    I suggest to make buttons in bottom menu.

  5. Calculate occupied space

    Midnight Commander, Total Commander for Android, Winscp has the features to calculate occupied space of listed directories.

    Although it is possible for local directories in Ghost Commander (select all and Info menu), but it doesn't have a dedicated button or menu item.
    I would suggest to have a dedicated button or menu item for this feature.

    Also this feature should also work for remote panel, for example an sftp directory.

    This would be a very useful feature.

  6. Add verify option for writing files

    Add a verify option (that can be turned on and off) to guarantee correctly written files. Helps to detect faulty sd cards or devices. When active, the written data should be re-read from device and compared by hash (eg. md5) to detect write errors.

  8. improve using more external sdcards

    Hi,
    I am not sure if this is the right place for a patch. It improves using more than one external sdcard (or otg flash disk). In the list on home screen you can see the block id of the partition and SAF can be used to access multiple partition at once. My use case is simply to copy files from otg flash disk to sdcard or vice versa. Could you, please, implement something like this?

    Thanks

    Pavel

    The patch is against the fdroid code for 1.56.4 version.

  9. Select files by tapping their icon/preview

    Add a checkbox that would allow us to select a file by tapping on its icon or preview regardless of its size.
    (Currently it's possible to mimic this for a single level of icon/preview size only.)

  10. Local storage and external SD card swapped

    It's more like a question than a request or suggestion. I have noticed that after factory reset GC sometimes swaps local and external storage: when I tap on local storage on Home panel it shows contents of the external card and when I tap on external card it shows contents of internal storage. Any other file manager installed on my phone show these correctly. Any ideas to fix this?

  11. Sort directories by size when sorting files by size.

    Similar to UNIX: du -sh * | sort -hr

    This may be slow, so it can be done by having a low-priority background thread calculate directory sizes and update the list asynchronously only if the user hasn't moved on to some other directory.

  12. Add a "token" option to the sftp plugin.

    right now the sftp plugin uses a userid and password, however many systems use a one-time-token (like Google Authenticatior).

    After the password prompt there is another prompt for the token, however GC doesn't currently have a away to handle this.

  13. Share file(s) with GC -> GC compresses and encrypt the file with 7z with a predefined password and sends it to cloud/SD/WhatsApp..

    Purpose: Easy compression and encryption from every app for sharing files with friends or storing securely in the cloud. Full compatibility with all systems due to standard 7zip format. 

    Situation: I viewing e.g. a PDF in Adobe Reader or another app  

    1. Click "Share". 
    2. click "Secure with GC" -> in the next step, the shared file is compressed directly in a 7zip file with a user pre-defined password (normally you could use the same password for your cloud)
    3. Next, another "Share" dialogue opens in which the encrypted 7zip file can be stored via GC in the cloud or…

  15. Add support for Android TV

    There isn't very much choice with file explorers that support android TV (leanback launcher). Ghost commander would be a great choice!

  16. Tree Command

    I've been hacked, and rooted, overlay installed, and being monitored. Everyone thinks I'm crazy, even you the reader.
    - My wonderful hacker left me a gift. They installed Goast Commander on my phone. It doesn't have SU and they've implemented Administrative privileges to limit my attempts to get them out of my phone.
    - GC having it's own set of privileges allows me to get to root / it would be extremely convenient to execute a command that list everything to a text file.

  17. Enable viewing of pdf files

    Click on the left side of a file in the GC list. This would open the file in an external viewer such as FB Reader. This could involve choosing the external viewer in a Setting, or using Android's program picker.

  20. Check if file exists before copying from CIFS to SD card

    When I copy a folder with lots of files from a network share to an SD card (through SAF) Ghost Commander currently copies the files to the local storage. Only then it tries to copy the files to the SD card (I supposes that's another stupid Android limitation for our "security" and you can't copy files directly to the SD card) and complains that some of the files already exist.
    That would save lots of time if the check would be performed for each file before it is actually copied.
    This would greatly help in quickly synchronising folders which do…
