Post Install

Once installed, use the following steps to setup and run xplr.

Create the customizable config file

mkdir -p ~/.config/xplr

version="$(xplr | grep ^version: | cut -d' ' -f 2)"

# When the app loads, press `#`

echo version = '"'${version:?}'"' > ~/.config/xplr/init.lua

Then copy from here and remove / comment out what you don't want to customize.

Note: You don't generally need to create the config file. You can use the default configuration for basic operations. However, creating the config file is recommended because the project is in its early stage and the defaults might change. Creating the config file will save you from unexpected behavior when you upgrade. Also, the default configuration is meant to be overwritten to suit your workflow.
