Vifm

Vifm is an ncurses based file manager with vi like keybindings/modes/options/commands/configuration, which also borrows some useful ideas from mutt.

Color themes

There is seperate git repository containing a collection of color themes for vifm.

If you would like to just have one theme you could download it via wget like this:

$  wget -P ~/.vifm/colors https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vifm/vifm-colors/master/solarized-dark

If you prefer to download all themes you could clone the entire repository, and stay up to date.

$  rm -rf ~/.vifm/colors
$  git clone https://github.com/vifm/vifm-colors ~/.vifm/colors

To check for updates just type

$  cd ~/.vifm/colors.
$  git pull
