[Dolphin] Fractal File view

Mon Jun 02, 2014 12:50 am
I am suggesting a new way of navigating through a filesystem. Every folder would be a frame around the files inside it and to navigate into a folder your camera zooms to the frame around the folder. This would be similar to nvigating a 2D fractal in that you can infinitely zoom in (Or at least until you reach a folder with no subfolders). It would be similar to a prezi with all of your files on it or the ios7 animation for launching an application.

moved to Brainstorm forum as it's more appropriate in "User-submitted ideas for KDE desktop and software."

I'd say this is exactly what the old kdirstat implemented:
http://kdirstat.sourceforge.net/
Not sure if there is a current version around. Maybe "filelight" can serve as an alternative, it offers a more tree-like display, less "blocky" as kdirstat.

Indeed, thanks @google01103, indeed k4dirstat appears to work just fine using current KDE-4.13.2. Great I found it again due to this suggestion here! Thanks!
