Is it possible to make vifm to show a custom list using --remote command? The custom list can be the output of a command find, grep or bash script.

Thank you

--remote doesn't send input over IPC, but you can store file list to a file and do

vifm --server-name name --remote +'!cat filelist %u'
If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
