Vento is a utility which allows you to manage your files as if you're playing an old text adventure. It's made in Rust and originally inspired by Chesapeake's Inventory.

Quick Start

After installing, run:

$ vento -i

This will create a .vento folder in your home directory, which will store your inventories. Some basic commands include:

// listing files in the currently active inventory
$ vento

// switching inventory slots
$ vento -c

// undoing last action
$ vento -u

// taking a file or directory
$ take <file|directory>

// dropping a file or directory
$ drop <file|directory> [destination]

For additional documentation, you can check the documentation for each command by running the following.

$ (command) -h

Or, if Vento was installed through cargo-make, check the manpages by running:

$ man (command)
