File Browser for Sailfish OS

A minimal file browser tool to view files on Sailfish OS and Jolla phones.

There is a FAQ about most common questions.

Warning

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. This app can be used to corrupt files on the phone and make the phone unusable. The author of File Browser does not take any responsibility if that happens. So, be careful.

Features

  • Browse and search files and folders on the phone
  • Open files (if xdg-open finds a preferred application)
  • Preview JPEG, PNG and GIF files
  • Play back WAV, MP3, OGG and FLAC audio
  • Install Android APK and Sailfish RPM packages
  • View contents of APK, RPM, ZIP and TAR packages
  • View contents of text and binary files
  • Select multiple files (by tapping the file icons)
  • Cut, copy and paste files (move/copy files) (by long pressing an item or tapping the file icons)
  • Rename files and folders
  • Create new folders
  • Delete files and folders (by long pressing an item or tapping the file icons)
  • Show hidden files (filenames starting with a dot)
  • Change permissions

Acknowledgements

File Browser is based on the excellent Helloworld Pro template.

The Exif data is displayed with JHead, which is a public domain Exif manipulation tool.

Other file managers

There is a very handy two-paned file manager called Cargo Dock in the Jolla Store. Give it a try if you are moving a lot of files.

OpenRepos has a powerful file manager called Filetug.

Android app stores also have file managers, such as ES File Explorer, which are good when accessing Android storage.

Building

  1. Get the source code
  2. Open the harbour-file-browser.pro in Sailfish OS IDE (Qt Creator for Sailfish)
  3. To run on emulator, select the i486 target and press the run button
  4. To build for the device, select the armv7hl target and deploy all, the rpm packages will be in the RPMS folder
