Title : Port of the week: sxiv Author: Solène Date : 13 May 2016 Tags : portoftheweek This week I will talk about the command line image viewer **sxiv**. While it's a command line tool, of course it spawn a X window to display the pictures. It's _very_ light and easy of use, it's my favorite image viewer. Quick start: (you should read the man page for more informations) - **sxiv file1 file2...** : Sxiv open **only** files given as parameter or filenames from stdin - **p/n** : previous/next - **f** : fullscreen - **12 G** : go to 12th image of the list - **Return** : switch to the thumbnails mode / select the image from the thumbnails mode - **q** : quit - a lot more in the well written man page ! For power users who have a LOT of pictures to sort: Sxiv has a nice function that let you _mark_ images you see and dump the list of marked images in a file (see parameter **-o**). Tip for zsh users, if you want to read every jpg files in a tree, you can use **`sxiv **/*.jpg`** globbing as seen in the Zsh cheat sheet :). In OpenBSD ports tree, check **graphics/sxiv**.
