These pages are a stub of Minimalistic Explorer’s official site. The aim of this site is provides information/tutorials and news about this project.

Minimalistic explorer is a file management application that start with the philosophy of minimalistic user interface but without give up features.

In my work of software engineer I need to handle text/hex files, grep these, interact with the command line, monitor log files and other common task (for me). The primary aim of Minimalistic Explorer 1.0 is to coverage all this task.
