As discussed here, the write-mode of the DirSheet is moving to a new tool: vls. This issue is to open discussion from any fans of the DirSheet, who want to provide feedback.

The reasons for this are:

  • It behaved differently from other sheets in VisiData.

The DirSheet (and other deferred modification sheets) wanted deleted rows to stick around (but colored/marked deleted) until the changes were committed. But data sheets wanted deleted rows to disappear straightaway.

  • It felt like a conceptually distinct tool.

Data sheets and filesystem editing are kind of two radically different use cases.

(quotes from this discussion)

Installation instructions

To play with it, install the latest of VisiData v2.x (on the develop branch).

Then type vls and it should be the DirSheet that we know and love.
