Is there a chance to get midnight commander's extfs (virtual filesystem provided by a set of scripts) way of navigating through archives into vifm - i. e. without FUSE? It would be especially useful for systems where you don't get root (e. g. Termux on a non-rooted Android).

It might be possible to manage custom views from Lua in the future. At least for viewing this should work. Updating is more complicated.

I was thinking about a way of implementing VFS, which might not even be too complicated, but the great thing about FUSE is that it works in any application you can run from Vifm passing it paths from a FUSE mount. You can't do this with internal VFS, because it's not visible from the outside and things won't work in weird ways (even quickview will break unless files are automatically extracted before viewing, which is not great).

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.
