This Python 3 script parses parses a list of Org-mode files and generates output similar to du (disk usage) but with lines of Org-mode instead of kilobytes.
The purpose of this script is to use its output as the input for xdu in order to get a graphical visualization:
org-du.py my_org_file.org another_org_file.org | xdu
The script accepts an arbitrary number of files (see your shell for possible length limitations).
GNU/Emacs Org-mode does a great job for outlining (collapsing and expanding). However, when you want to get a brief overview on the amount of content of each heading (e.g., to locate performance optimization possibilities), you need a different tool: org-du
usage: org-du.py [-h] [-v | --quiet | --version] file [file ...] org-du parses a list of Org-mode files and generates output similar to "du" (disk usage) but with lines of Org-mode instead of kilobytes. positional arguments: file a list of file names optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -v, --verbose --quiet --version show program's version number and exit Verbose description: http://Karl-Voit.at/2017/03/27/org-du/ :copyright: (c) by Karl Voit <tools@Karl-Voit.at> :license: GPL v3 or any later version :URL: https://github.com/novoid/org-du :bugreports: via github or <tools@Karl-Voit.at> :version: 2017-03-26
If you apply
org-du to this
README.org file, you will see
You can navigate through sub-headings using your mouse. Navigate back

Another cool usage scenario is when you invoke
org-du on one host
(Windows) and visualizing is done on a different host. This can easily
be accomplished by re-directing the output of the script:
Host A (Windows):
org-du.py *.org > org-du-output.txt
Then copying the file
org-du-output.txt from host A to host B.
Host B (GNU/Linux):
xdu < org-du-output.txt
