broot <ROOT>

Broot lets you explore file hierarchies with a tree-like view, manipulate files, launch actions, and define your own shortcuts. broot is best launched as br: this shell function gives you access to more commands, especially cd. The br shell function is interactively installed on first broot launch. Flags and options can be classically passed on launch but also written in the configuration file. Each flag has a counter-flag so that you can cancel at command line a flag which has been set in the configuration file
