If you don;t alkready know, Total Commander (former known as Windows Commander) is one of the most popular file managers. It says it's shareware but actually it asks you to press one key before starting it (no other limitations watsoever) so you can see it as free software.

It would be GREAT if you could do a plugin for it as you did for FAR. There is a plugin for TC but badly written and no longer in development. The documentation for File System plugins of TC can be found here: http://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm#filesys (last link in the File System plugins list) or a direct link (might change) here: http://ghisler.fileburst.com/fsplugins/fspluginhelp1.3.zip

Or maybe you can provide us with a compatible DLL so that we can implement ourselves a plugin for TC using your DLL.

Thanks anyway for WinSCP, great tool.

Cheers.

It could be really wonderful to implement plugin like this in Totalcmd.
It will be great to use only one aplication for almost everything about files and transfers ...

Many Thanks

I think many people would appreciate plugin for Total commander. As was already said, there is a simple sftp plugin, but it lacks on features and it doesn't support scp protocol. Confused
Idea You could put it as a poll question on your page and see the response Wink

thanks

Wurmi Cool

Hello Martin,

why in detail you are not interesting in developing a winscp based scp/sftp plugin for TotalCommander? I know it is not very funny to add plugins for every filemanager and it could be a lot of work, but TotalCommander has a big and great Community which would thank you very much if you could add such a plugin.

Greetings,
Michael

Well, I do not like Total Commander. I has ugly and non-intuitive user interface. Whenever I have to use it, I'm not able to find function I need. I know that it is just personal that many people are satisfied with it. But I'm not.

Well, thats true...
but I use it now for years and so I like many things of it. Maybe I'll find time someday to write a WinSCP based extension...

My question is: is difficult to develop support for tabs? like in total commander...

I`ll press CTRL+T so I can switch between two connections or between two locations in box... or etc...

Thanks for your answer, also for tabs in WinSCP or Total Commander plugin..... Wink

You can toggle between opened sessions using Ctrl+Tab. I may consider adding tabs also.

I think, thats an argument. That shows imho, that there exists a large interest after a Plugin.

You can make yourself an individual menu and icons or you load appropriate from the Web. Then it looks modern and than you are able to find all functions you need.
So that the appearance is not necessarily a counterargument.

But it is your decision, but it would be nice, if you would consider it again.

Was looking for winscp-plugin for Total Commander and came to that page... I wouldn't say that user interface of tcmd is uglier than far's, and I'm 100% sure, that it (I mean tcmd's ui) is much more practic and convenient. Anyway, it's just my opinion, but again, I'm sure, that number of tcmd-users is much greater than that of far. It would be really cool to have this plugin for tcmd.

I've never said that FAR had better UI then TC. I just personally prefer FAR. I have developed the FAR plugin for myself and just made it available to public.

When starting winscp from .bat file it creates new window, takes focus and other... Can WinSCP start without creating console window and use current?

Winscp3.exe being GUI application cannot inherit the console of parent process. You need to use winscp3.com instead.

Here's another Total Commander addict that's missing the SCP feature.

It's pretty clear from this thread that prikryl won't be doing this, but since WinSCP is open-source, anyone of us could do it! Time to start pitching in donations to someone? It's up for grabs guys :-)

Do we have any free and opensource windows compiler/enviroment so we can build this plugin under this enviroment? If FAR plugin exists and WinSCP is opensource it shoudn't be so hard to create this plugin for WinSCP... Somebody has to start, enough is enough... Shocked

Hi, Firstly I must say that WinSCP is a great peace of software... and as many others have stated I myself would also see a Total Commander plug-in. With regards to the above mentioned statement, I must just give my 10 cents worth on the subject. I've been really studying WinSCP and it's configs... and I must say for someone that doesn't really like the Total CMD interface have made the WinSCP's one look a lot the same as the Total CMD's one....

But on another matter, is it possible to get hold of the code for the plugin for salamander? I would like to see not just how it looks but also how it was written. I've been out of coding for a long time but would like to see if maybe and this is a BIG maybe I would be able to through a pulugin togeter for TotalCMD...

But again thx

I have not meant the concept of GUI. It is the same. I've meant how it looks. But if you do not see the difference youself, I guess I cannot explain it.

And here is another guy who really would like to have WinSCP as a TC-plugin.

Maybe the looks aren't the strenght of TC, functionaliy and WOW are. Personally I evaluated also Altap Salamander who's looks are better but WOW (IMHO) not.

Any news about the chances for a TC-plugin ?

Thanks (for the great WinSCP)

The top show stoppers for me (a licensed owner of both TC and AS)

# 1
Unicode support (even if there are only a few Cyrillic-based file names in my documents from my work in the Balkans, it is a problem)

# 2
Synchronize function for folders

# 3:
7-zip (new version) plugin support, especially for encrypted archives (AES)

Other:
- background operations for archives
- 64-bit version
- full Vista (UAC) support

A really useful feature from Total Commander as far as I'm concerned is the ability to filter selected files using a pattern-matching string (like regex).

I love the built-in viewer (F3) of Total Commander.

It's fast, and you can search in it - both backward AND forward, which is handy when you're reading logfiles.

I've used winscp for a few days - what I mist most is the familiarity with the TC GUI, F3 (view) and the backwards search in view/edit.

I'm also begging for a T.C. plugin!

What can i say, TC is the best file manager in the world (Far? ha...) so one more vote for TC plugin :)

eyedmax, prikryl, like he wrote, add it as a issue - shame that with so low priority Sad I'm also waiting years for this plygin to TC, WinSCP is a very good tool, but I hate using thousands of separate tools for each task...
IMHO when plugin became available finally number of WinSCP users will drop dramatically, maybe that's a reason for such delay?

Why should I care if people use WinSCP or WinSCP plugin for TC? In fact number of WinSCP users would probably increase dramatically with WinSCP plugin for TC.

Hi,

Plug in for Salamander is NOT free.
TC and Salamander are competitor.
WinSCP have some affinity ( just my opinion) with Altap.
So it's not a priority to define a plug-in for TC.

Just a commercial agreement or not ?!

DredSFTP is working fine and without OpenCandy.
DredSFTP is also free.

Don't waste your time.


Does this much talked-about PlugIn REALLY exist?

regards

Will

PS : I used TC and Salamander. I still use TC.
One is more expensive regardless of existing Plug-Ins.
I use command line for almost all my work, and TC with some useful Plug In for some tasks (with a Licence of course).
