Project Description
FileExplorer is a WPF control (not metro) that can replace the Windows Explorer. It supports both FileSystem and non-FileSystem structures, as long as they are in the folder-content (hierarchical) structure. FileExplorer3 includes a TabControl, Breadcrumb, FolderTree, FileList, Sidebar, Toolbar and Statusbar.

FileExplorer3 (previous version : FileExplorer2)
FileExplorer3 is a MVVM project that is based on the Caliburn Micro framework. This a refactored and simplified code base (e.g. MultiSelectionHelper and DragAndDropHelper is merged to a processor in UIEventHub, which support touch now). The BreadcrumbTree has less of a coupling with the FileSystem and a theme update.
Dec14 Update

FileExplorer3 also supports web based services like GoogleDrive, DropBox and OneDrive.

The is also a TabControl interface, which allows multiple open FileExplorer and ToolWindow interfaces

This project can also be re-used by embedding a ToolWindow interface inside your UI:

One can access it's view model to do most stuff, beside changing the parameter directly, internally most code uses the ScriptRunner, which calls ViewModel.Commands.Execute/Async() to run IScriptCommands.
List of ScriptCommands
FileExplorer3 defined a number of UICommands and registered in the view (through ScriptCommandBinding. Users can also use ExplorerInitializer to specify what to do when an explorer is created.
