From source

Make sure you have a working Go environment (Go 1.12 or higher is required). See the install instructions.

Compiling duf is easy, simply run:

git clone https://github.com/muesli/duf.git
cd duf
go build

Usage

You can simply start duf without any command-line arguments:

duf

If you supply arguments, duf will only list specific devices & mount points:

duf /home /some/file

If you want to list everything (including pseudo, duplicate, inaccessible file systems):

duf --all

Filtering

You can show and hide specific tables:

duf --only local,network,fuse,special,loops,binds
duf --hide local,network,fuse,special,loops,binds

You can also show and hide specific filesystems:

duf --only-fs tmpfs,vfat
duf --hide-fs tmpfs,vfat

...or specific mount points:

duf --only-mp /,/home,/dev
duf --hide-mp /,/home,/dev

Wildcards inside quotes work:

duf --only-mp '/sys/*,/dev/*'

Display options

Sort the output:

duf --sort size

Valid keys are: mountpoint, size, used, avail, usage, inodes, inodes_used, inodes_avail, inodes_usage, type, filesystem.

Show or hide specific columns:

duf --output mountpoint,size,usage

Valid keys are: mountpoint, size, used, avail, usage, inodes, inodes_used, inodes_avail, inodes_usage, type, filesystem.

List inode information instead of block usage:

duf --inodes

If duf doesn't detect your terminal's colors correctly, you can set a theme:

duf --theme light

Bonus

If you prefer your output as JSON:

duf --json

Troubleshooting

Users of oh-my-zsh should be aware that it already defines an alias called duf, which you will have to remove in order to use duf:

unalias duf
