tree-node-cli

Lists the contents of directories in a tree-like format, similar to the Linux tree command. Both CLI and Node APIs are provided.

Tree is a recursive directory listing program that produces a depth indented listing of files. When a directory argument is given, tree lists all the files and/or directories found in the given directory.

Note: Symlinks are not followed.

Installation

$ npm install tree-node-cli

CLI

$ tree [options] [path/to/dir]

Note: Use the command treee on Windows and Linux to avoid conflicts with built-in tree command.

The following options are available:

$ tree -h

  Usage: tree [options]

  Options:

    -V, --version             output the version number
    -a, --all-files           All files, include hidden files, are printed.

    -L, --max-depth <n>       Max display depth of the directory tree.
    -r, --reverse             Sort the output in reverse alphabetic order.

API

const tree = require('tree-node-cli');
const string = tree('path/to/dir', options);

options is a configuration object with the following fields:

Field Default Type Description
allFiles false Boolean All files are printed. By default, tree does not print hidden files (those beginning with a dot).
dirsFirst false Boolean List directories before files.
dirsOnly false Boolean List directories only.
sizes false Boolean Show filesizes as well.
exclude [] Array An array of regex to test each filename against. Matching files will be excluded and matching directories will not be traversed into.
maxDepth Number.POSITIVE_INFINITY Number Max display depth of the directory tree.
reverse false Boolean Sort the output in reverse alphabetic order.
trailingSlash false Boolean Appends a trailing slash behind directories.
lineAscii false Boolean Turn on ASCII line graphics.
const string = tree('path/to/dir', {
  allFiles: true,
  exclude: [/node_modules/, /lcov/],
  maxDepth: 4,
});

console.log(string);
