Hi Experts,

I would like to make Nautilus use descript.ion files or maybe a similar feature?
I tried to search the Internet a few times. No luck.

Maybe someone already knows the answer? :)

Best regards,
The Terrible
# descript.ion file contains descriptions of every single file in a folder
# and is copied with the file to any other folder
file1.txt Description 1
file2.exe Description 2

Nautilus can support such features, it's API allows this:
https://taschenorakel.de/svn/repos/bulldozer/tags/release-0.1.0/documentation/NautilusExtensions.html#id2429498
http://blogs.gnome.org/jamesh/2004/12/03/nautilus-extensions/

but seems nobody has implemented this extension, you may be the first :-)

Yet another file manager already has this feature:
