fman's development journey

fman is based on the Qt GUI framework. The company behind Qt invited me to give a webinar about how I created fman. Watch it here to learn what goes into creating a cross-platform desktop app:

The video explains why I decided to open source fman's build system: Months of fman's development went into "boring" tasks such as creating installers for the various operating systems. I strongly feel that we should not have to waste time on such things in 2019. The above link shares fman's solutions in the hope that it will spare other developers much of the effort.

Michael started fman in 2016, convinced that we deserve a better file manager. fman's launch in 2017 was a huge success. But despite full-time work, it only makes $500 per month. The goal is to fix this.
