Broot – A new way to see and navigate directory trees, Hacker News


Installation

overview

Notice theunlisted?

That’s what makes it usable where the oldtreecommand would produce pages of output .

. gitignorefiles are properly dealt with to put unwanted files out of your way (you can ignore them though, see documentation).

This way, you can navigate to a directory with the minimum amount of keystrokes, even if you don’t exactly remember where it is.

broot is fast and never blocks, even when you make it search a big slow disk (any keystroke interrupts the current search to start the next one).

Most useful keys for this:

    the letters of what you’re looking for

      to select a directory (staying in broot)

          to get back to the previous state or clear your search

            ************** to get back to the shell havingcdto the selected directory

              : qcdif you just want to quit (you can useor

            if you prefer)

            broot tries to select the most relevant file. You can still go from one match to another one usingsizeor arrow keys.

            You may also search with a regular expression. To do this, add a/before or after the pattern.

            Once the file you want is selected you can

            hit(or double-click) to open it in your system's default program

              cdhitto open it in your system's default program and close broot

                  type a verb. For example (**************: e

            opens the file in your preferred editor (which may be a terminal one)

              Most often you move your files in the blind. You do a fewlsbefore, then your manipulation, and maybe you check after.

              You can instead do it without losing the view of the file hierarchy.

              Move, copy, rm, mkdir, are built in and you can add your own shortcuts.

              Just find the file you want to edit with a few keystrokes, type: e, thenoverview.

              You can add verbs or configure the existing ones; seesizedocumentation.

              And you can add shorcuts, for example actrlsequence or a function key

              If you want to displaydatesand (permissions, do(br -dp) which gets you this:

              size

              You may also toggle options with a few keystrokes while inside broot. For example hitting a space, a dthen enter shows you the dates. Or a space, thenhthen enter and you show hidden files.

              If you start broot with the – sizesoption, or if you type: swhile in broot, you get a mode tailored to “whale spotting” nagigation, making it easy to determine what files or folders take space.

              And you keep all broot tools, like filtering or the ability to delete or open files and directories.

              Sizes are computed in the background, you don’t have to wait for them when you navigate.
