Are you always typing ls or git status in your shell? Have you customised your prompt to give you extra information? Everything people do, we look at what we're working on. Manipulating files and folders in the shell shouldn't be any different - it should be easy to see what you're doing.

That's what Redsnail does. With every command you run, the files panel shows you the contents of the folder you're in. cd into a git repository, and the git panel appears.

What other panels do you want to see?


(Linux only, for now - Mac users, see issue #5)

If you have Batis, you can install by running:
