Installation

Prerequisites

Install the patched fonts of powerline nerd-font and/or font-awesome. Have a look at the Nerd Font README for more installation instructions.

Archlinux

(coming soon)

Other

Update your rust toolchain to at least 1.30.1 and install the lsd package with:

rustup update
cargo install lsd

Configurations

Required

In order to use lsd instead of the default ls you need to add this to you shell configuration file (~/.bashrc, ~/.zshrc, etc.) :

alias ls='lsd'

Optional

Some examples of useful aliases. You can add this to you shell configuration file (~/.bashrc, ~/.zshrc, etc.) just under the alias above :

alias l='ls -l'
alias la='ls -a'
alias lla='ls -la'
alias lt='ls --tree'

Benchmark

Result from hyperfine --warmup 10 'lsd -la /etc/*' 'colorls -la /etc/*' --export-markdown out.md:

Command Mean [ms] Min…Max [ms]
lsd -la /etc/* 11.0 ± 0.5 9.9…13.0
colorls -la /etc/* 503.3 ± 5.6 494.6…513.4

TODO

  • Handle the -l option (used by default for now)
  • Handle the -a option
  • Add icons before the files names
  • Handle all the file types (block/char/pipe/etc)
  • Handle the tree (--tree) output option
  • Handle the json (--json) output option
