NLAY(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual NLAY(1)

nlay
a bash script to play files in different apps by file type or run some actions.

nlay file/path type/action

nlay is shipped with nnn to deliver a level of flexibility to users to choose their own apps when running some actions, run some commands or custom scripts. It has provisions to handle text files too. However, the capability is not used in the latest releases. Now nlay is invoked to run a desktop search ( gnome-search-tool or catfish) or screen locker (vlock or bashlock or lock) utility. However, nlay can run independently and can be highly customized for personal usage.
nlay supports the following options:
"file/path"
The first argument can be the file or path to pass as an argument to the app. It can also be an empty string e.g., while locking the terminal.
"type/action"
This can be any of the strings text, search, script or screensaver.

$ nlay info.txt text 
$ nlay . search 
$ nlay ~/script.sh script 
$ nlay "" screensaver
