ls++ - colorized ls on steroids

GNU/Linux screenshot

USAGE

ls++ [OPTION]... [FILE]...

OPTIONS

Not known parameters will be passed through to ls, so to show hidden files, -a or -A might be added. See ls(1) for more information.

Views

--pf    permissions, file
--psf   permissions, size, file
--tpf   time, permissions, file
--tpsf  time, permissions, size, file (default)
--ptsf  permissions, time, size, file
--potsf permissions, owners, time, size, file

INSTALLATION

Packages exist for several linux distributions:

Archlinux

pacman -S ls++

SUSE

yast -i ls++

Other / Bleeding edge

I recommend using the cpanminus cpan client and doing a

alias cpan=cpanm

in your shellrc. The program will be there in your normal repositories. :)

# cpanm Term::ExtendedColor File::LsColor
$ git clone git://github.com/trapd00r/ls--.git
$ cd ls--
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make && su -c 'make install'

$ cp ls++.conf $HOME/.ls++.conf

Install from git locally in your $HOME:

$ mkdir -p $HOME/lib/perl5
$ export PERL5LIB=${HOME}/lib/perl5
$ export PERL_MM_OPT="INSTALL_BASE=${PERL5LIB}"
$ cpanm Term::ExtendedColor File::LsColor

$ git clone git://github.com/trapd00r/ls--.git $ cd ls-- $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make install

$ cp ls++.conf $HOME/ls++.conf

Install from CPAN locally; managing dependencies automatically:

$ mkdir -p $HOME/lib/perl5
$ export PERL5LIB=${HOME}/lib/perl5
$ export PERL_MM_OPT="INSTALL_BASE=${PERL5LIB}"
$ cpan App::lsplusplus

If you want to install it globaly, you just skip the first three steps and run the cpan command as root.

Mac OS X Installation

# cpan Term::ExtendedColor File::LsColor
$ git clone git://github.com/trapd00r/ls--.git
$ cd ls--
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ make && sudo 'make install'

$ cp ls++.conf $HOME/.ls++.conf

HISTORY

I wanted to re-arrange the ls output just like one can do with the -printf option to GNU find. Sadly, there are no -printf option available for ls, so I threw together a quick hack called 'pilsner' that did what I wanted and nothing more, nothing less. Not very useful to others.

Mattias Svanström crafted together the 'l' application which did basically the same thing but more elegant and with a nice twist; it calculated relative mtimes.

I really liked that idea, but there were a couple of annoyances, so I forked the project and added a configuration file, support for flags that'll control the different views and possibility to ignore as well as highlight specific files.
