How to create new file using Ranger

You can map any key you want to the operation of creating a new file in Ranger. This can be done using the touch command in the Ranger console.

For example, to create a new file when Ins is pressed, add this to ~/.config/ranger/rc.conf:

$ map <INSERT> console touch

When Ins is pressed, the touch is executed at the Ranger console at the bottom and it asks for a filename for the new file.

Tried with: Ranger 1.6.1 and Ubuntu 14.04
