Numerically sort lines that start with human-readable file sizes, e.g. "32.3G ./Movies"
$ npm install -g husort
$ du -h /path/ | husort
-r | --reverse: reverse the order of the sorting.
Sort an array of strings where each entry is prefixed by (potentially) human readable file sizes.
Why not just use
Because when I wrote this I didn't realize
sort -h was possible – the
native OS X
sort doesn't have that option. It turns out you can get a
version that does, though:
$ brew install coreutils $ brew link coreutils $ # now you have a `gsort` bin that supports -h
I'll still leave this library/repo kicking around because the library itself might be useful to someone
