Official Mirror:
LibFM provides file management functions built on top of Glib/GIO, giving a convenient higher-level API. Some features: * Desktop-independent, following FreeDesktop standards; * Fast, light on memory usage, and responsive - well suited to less powerful hardware such as netbooks and thin clients; * Uses GIO/GVFS (like Nautilus) for Trash support and access to remote file systems (FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Windows shares, etc.); * Clipboard operations are compatible with GTK+/GNOME and Qt/KDE; * Supports both Drag-and-Drop, and the X Direct Save protocol; * Reusable design with the core functions separated out to simplify porting to other GUIs. This package contains the core library.
