Command line arguments

You can start fman from the command line:

fman [left_dir [right_dir]]

For example, if you type fman . then the current directory is opened in fman's left pane. If you enter just fman then the directories from your last session are opened. Finally, fman ~ ~/Downloads opens your home and Downloads directories in the left and right panes, respectively.

In order for this to work, you need to update your operating system's PATH:

On Windows, you need to add fman's installation directory C:/​Users/​<Username>/​AppData/​Local/​fman to your PATH environment variable. (You have to at least restart the command console in order for this change to take effect.)

On Mac, you need to add /Applications/​​Contents/​SharedSupport/​bin/ to your PATH. You can do this by adding the following line to ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile:

export PATH=/Applications/$PATH

You may have to execute source ~/.bashrc (or likewise for .bash_profile) in order for the changes to take effect.

On Linux it should "just work". fman's command-line executable is in /usr/bin, which is usually already on the PATH.
