Today I discovered an excellent little tool that lets you drag files into your browser, without having to use a graphical window manager. It’s called dragon ( and all it does is accept a list of files, and create an X/Wayland window that lists them all as dragable items. You can then drag and drop them onto your browser, or anything else that accepts drops. It even supports reverse drag-and-drop, acting as a target that forwards anything dropped onto it to you.
