ptree is a simple Python script that displays the directory tree of the current working directory with color-coded output for easy file identification.
print-pretty-tree, you can use either
pip or other package managers like
If you have Python and
pip install print-pretty-tree --user
If you have
npm 5.2 or higher, we recommend using
npx to run packages globally. This way, you don't need to install the package globally and can still use it as a tool.
If you still want to install
print-pretty-tree globally, on the command line, run the following command:
npm install -g print-pretty-tree
If you get an EACCES permissions error, you may need to reinstall
npm with a version manager or manually change
npm's default directory. For more information, see the npm docs here.
Once you have installed
print-pretty-tree, you can run the script in any directory.
You can run any of the commands below in any directory, regardless of how you installed it.
pt ptree print-pretty-tree
The script excludes certain files and folders like node_modules and .git by default to make the output easier to manage. It will recursively display the directory structure in a visually pleasing way.
# clone the repo git clone https://github.com/itsbrex/print-pretty-tree.git # cd into the repo cd print-pretty-tree # build the package python3 -m build
- To add more file types and colors to the output, you can modify the
FILE_TYPE_COLORSdictionary in the script.
- You can also customize the excluded file patterns by modifying the
EXCLUDED_PATTERNSlist in the script.
