Homebrew Is there a decent file explorer for the Wii U, or an easy way to port a Wii one?

Hi guys! Apologies if this question is too generic, but I figured I'd try my luck at getting the XP bonus that comes from asking a question here :P

So the question title is pretty much self-explanatory...and if there's no easy way to port WiiXplorer or another Wii project that accomplishes the same things, I'd be interested in developing my own. But I'm afraid I need a bit of guidance to do that, as discussed on this request thread.

MTIA for any helpful advice offered! :D

    sshfs you say...

    I use SFTP but it doesn't have the bells and whistles.

    sshfs allows you to mount networked storage on a machine as a FUSE filesystem. It's sftp under the hood but has all of the interactivity and usability you'd expect of a locally mounted filesystem. Downside, it can slow down a little bit with massive directories, but I haven't personally run into that yet
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    This perspective is all linux oriented fwiw. I believe there's an sshfs driver for Windows, but I haven't used it yet. and no idea for MacOS

    By the way under Windows you can use Total Commander to access so many sources as drives, SFTP, FTP, WebDav, Cloud shares, etc.
