Format 'ls' output into verbose, human readable output

Project description

Verbose ls

This package aims to make the output of ls a little more readable and verbose.

Note: This package should work on Linux, but has only been tested on Mac OS (Mojave).

Installation

$ pip install verbose_ls

Using verbose_ls

For example, the permissions for owner, group, and other users can be hard to read in the first 9 slots. And for someone new to ls it may not be obvious what the other output means.

For example, for the setup.py in this package:

ls -l setup.py

-rw-r--r--  1 scottnelson  staff  406 Dec 26 20:30 setup.py

This util adds descriptions for each column, and expands the output to make it more clear what it means.
