NX-Shell - Multipurpose File Manager for Nintendo Switch

NX Shell is a multi-purpose file manager for the Nintendo Switch that aims towards handling various file types while keeping the basic necessities of a standard file manager. Initially the project was inspired by LineageOS/CyanogenMod's file manager for android, and even had a similar design approach to that of the famous Android file manager. However, it has been re-written from scratch, now using more up to date tools and libraries.

For those asking about FTP support. Yes that will come in the future, 3DShell also has it, so this will get it as well. I'm just waiting for libnx to mature a little more. For example we can't even get the IP address yet, so once things are matured more features will be added to this. Also do note: new folder and rename aren't implemented due to the missing keyboard feature. Once that's available (or if I'm not too lazy to write my own) these features will be ready. Not too sure about videos but I do plan on adding music player support at some point as well.

Quick question, is this touch-supported?

Copy paste, delete and everything

Exactly what we needed.

Amazing work.

Wow! A wish come true!
Thank you very much for this. I really needed to delete some rom files.
FTP would be great especially if android apps are supported.
And maybe native usb support Switch to PC.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.
