[Ranger-users] Writing asynchronous plugins

I wrote a tiny plugin to interface ranger with git-annex [1].
Unfortunately, the docs are lacking a bit, so I had to guess how to
achieve certain things. I just want to make sure I used the canonical
way of doing things, so here are some questions:

- How do I implement asynchronous calls to external programs?
Currently, I run a runner with the wait flag set to False. In another
thread I wait for the process to finish and update the affected

- Is it okay to save fm.thisdir and use it later in another thread?

- How can I notify the user that a certain action is currently going
on and taking a while?

Thanks for your patience,
