List contents of directories in a vine-like format.

Project description


List contents of directories in a vine-like format.

lsvine is like tree but with the first-level directories distributed horizontally (and dangling downwards, hence like a vine).

This format compacts the information vertically and displays it in a trello-like format.


pip3 install lsvine


# lsvine --version
lsvine, version 0.1.0

# lsvine .

Comparison with ls and tree

  • ls is available by default on all linux distributions.
  • tree can be installed with apt-get install tree
