crocus

An experiment in different ways of representing how your file system is being used.

Installation

Crocus can be installed globally via npm:

> npm install -g crocus
> crocus

Now open your favorite browser and go to http://localhost:8642. Type in the path whose structure you want to visualize.

IMPORTANT: Visualizing your whole hard drive, or even just a large part of it is not recommended. In general, crocus tends to choke more often on complex file trees with many small files than on simple file trees with a few large ones. Getting the performance to be better is an ongoing concern.

Development

Right now crocus is an express app that can be fired up using gulp. To install it, follow the following instructions:

git clone https://github.com/chrisuehlinger/crocus
npm install
bower install
gulp
