SpaceFM is a fork of PCManFM, a multi-panel tabbed file and desktop manager. It provides broad support for virtual filesystems, mounting and device management. It's customizable and can integrate with external tools or helper scripts. Its primary development goal is to keep it lightweight nonetheless.
