I've been using
nnn for a few months now, and I can't overhype it.
It's a no-frills, super-fast file manager that runs in your terminal. It's open source and written in C.
nnn - type less, do more, way faster

nnn is a full-featured terminal file manager. It's tiny, extremely light and fast.
nnn is also a disk usage analyzer, a fuzzy app launcher, a batch file renamer and a file picker. The plugin repository has tons of plugins and plugin-specific documentation to extend the capabilities further. There's an independent (neo)vim plugin.
It runs smoothly on the Raspberry Pi, Termux on Android, Linux, macOS, BSD, Cygwin and Linux subsystem for Windows.
nnn works seamlessly with DEs and GUI utilities. It's nearly zero-config (with sensible defaults) and can be setup in less than 5 minutes.
Add to that an awesome Wiki!
- Light (default), detail
- Disk usage analyzer (block/apparent)
- File picker, (neo)vim plugin
- Navigate-as-you-type with dir auto-select
- Contexts (aka tabs/workspaces) with custom colors
- Sessions, bookmarks; pin and…
The Quickstart guide is excellent.
