A more colorful, user-friendly implementation of
ls written in Go.
You want to be able to glean a lot of information as quickly as possible from
Colors can help your mind parse the information.
You can configure
ls to color the output a little bit.
ls is a hassle though, and the colors are limited.
Instead, you can use
It is highly colored by default.
It has much fewer flags so you can get the behavior you want more easily.
The colors are beautiful and semantic.
A terminal with xterm-256 colors is required.
- Should work on Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
- Outputs beautiful, semantic colors by default.
- Show paths to symlinks, and explicitly show broken links.
- Recurse down subdirectories.
- Emojis (if you're into that).
- Supports Nerd Fonts.
# do this once in a while $ go get -u github.com/acarl005/ls-go
brew install acarl005/homebrew-formulas/ls-go
Of course, you can use an alias to save some typing and get your favorite options.
Show locations of symlink.
List subdirectories recursively.

Nerd Font Support
ls-go works with Nerd Fonts.
-n to get file-specific icons.
This won't work unless you have a Nerd Font installed and selected in your terminal emulator.
Contributions are muchly appreciated! Want to add a glyph for another file type? Did I forget an edge case? Is there another option that would be useful? Submit a PR! You might want to submit an issue first to make sure it's something I'd want to add though.
