This project is heavily inspired by the super colorls project but with some little differences. For example it is written in rust and not in ruby which makes it much faster.
Install the patched fonts of powerline nerd-font and/or font-awesome. Have a look at the Nerd Font README for more installation instructions. Don't forget to setup your terminal in order to use the correct font.
See this issue comment for detailed instructions on how to configure iTerm2 font settings correctly.
pacman -S lsd
dnf install lsd
... and other Debian-based Linux distributions
Download the latest .deb package from the release page and install it via:
sudo dpkg -i lsd_0.18.0_amd64.deb # adapt version number and architecture
sudo emerge sys-apps/lsd
(Ebuild maintained by Georgy Yakovlev)
brew install lsd
nix-env -iA nixos.lsd
# ... environment.systemPackages = with pkgs; [ # other packages ... lsd ]; # ...
pkg install lsd
Install with Scoop:
powershell scoop install lsd
pkg install lsd
With Rust's package manager cargo, you can install lsd via:
cargo install lsd
If you want to install the latest master branch commit:
sh cargo install --git https://github.com/Peltoche/lsd.git --branch master
The release page includes precompiled binaries for Linux and macOS.
lsdcan be configured with a configuration file to set the default options. Right now this only supports setting options that can be passed via the command line options as well.
On non-Windows systems
lsdfollows the XDG Base Directory Specification convention for the location of the configuration file. The configuration dir
lsduses is itself named
lsd. In that directory it looks first for a file called
config.yamland if it can't find one, a file named
config.yml. For most people it should be enough to put their config file at
On Windows systems
lsdonly looks for the two files in one location:
This is an example config file with the default values and some additional remarks. ```yaml
ls. It affects the "color"->"when", "sorting"->"dir-grouping", "date"
blocks: - permission - user - group - size - date - name
color: # When to colorize the output. # When "classic" is set, this is set to "never". # Possible values: never, auto, always when: auto
icons: # When to use icons. # When "classic" is set, this is set to "never". # Possible values: always, auto, never when: auto # Which icon theme to use. # Possible values: fancy, unicode theme: fancy
recursion: # Whether to enable recursion. # Possible values: false, true enabled: false # How deep the recursion should go. This has to be a positive integer. Leave # it unspecified for (virtually) infinite. # depth: 3
sorting: # Specify what to sort by. # Possible values: extension, name, time, size, version column: name # Whether to reverse the sorting. # Possible values: false, true reverse: false # Whether to group directories together and where. # When "classic" is set, this is set to "none". # Possible values: first, last, none dir-grouping: none
total-size: false ```
Enable nerd fonts for your terminal, URxvt for example:
URxvt*font: xft:Hack Nerd Font:style=Regular:size=11
In order to use lsd when entering the
lscommand, you need to add this to your shell configuration file (~/.bashrc, ~/.zshrc, etc.):
Some further examples of useful aliases:
alias l='ls -l' alias la='ls -a' alias lla='ls -la' alias lt='ls --tree'
In the future the possibility to customize the colors might be implemented. For now, the default colors are:
| User/Group | Permissions | File Types | Last time Modified | File Size | |:---|:---|:---|:---|:---| | User| Read | Directory| within the last hour| Small File| | Group| Write| Executable File| within the last day| Medium File| || Execute| Non-Executable File| older| Large File| || Execute with Stickybit| Broken Symlink|| Non File| || No Access| Pipe/Symlink/Blockdevice/Socket/Special||| ||| CharDevice|||
lsdwill try to display the UTF-8 chars in file name, A
U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER(�) is used to represent the invalid UTF-8 chars.
Everyone can contribute to this project, improving the code or adding functions. If anyone wants something to be added we will try to do it.
