Explorer 0.1.12
A Reflux file explorer application with reusable editors and viewers

Explorer is a file explorer application based on the Reflux framework. More than an application, Explorer also provides reusable Views and Editors. Explorer may also be enhanced through the use of Plugins.


  • System file explorer
  • Fantom documentation viewer
  • A better web browser / html viewer
  • Fandoc file viewer
  • Resource Tree
  • Text editor (borrowed from fluxText)
  • Syntax highlighting (uses syntax)

Small things that make me use it:

  • Quick view / edit toggling with F12
  • Easily show / hide hidden files
  • Text editor word wrapping (configurable)
  • Address bar accepts pod names, e.g. afIoc



To install Explorer with Fantom Pod Manager, cut'n'paste the following into a cmd prompt, terminal or shell:

Or to install Explorer with the Fantom Repository Manager (fanr), cut'n'paste the following into a cmd prompt, terminal or shell:
