Projects / pydirstat


pyDirStat is a small tool to view statistical information about a directory. It will generate a view of all files contained in a directory (and subdirectories) with rectangles. Each rectangular area is proportional to the file sizes. It's useful for viewing disk usage with graphics. It's a non-interactive command-line tool that will generate HTML or SVG or SWF files. On Windows, it also runs as a shell extension.

Recent releases

    Release Notes: A way to draw information other than just "file size" was added. A way to exclude some files and directories based on filename was added.

    •  12 Jun 2006 01:15

      Release Notes: This release adds a legend and meta-data for HTML output (just click on the filename bar).

      •  24 Apr 2006 20:21

        Release Notes: This release uses a unique "pydirstat" script instead of a gazillion small scripts using the new plugin architecture. This allows the use of the old SVG and Ming backends under Windows. Therefore, Windows users can now generate an HTML file, an SVG file, or a Ming (Flash) file containing the directory statistics.

          Release Notes: This release should really work on both Unix and Windows. A configuration file was implemented along with a configuration tool.

          •  23 Jan 2006 07:49

            Release Notes: This release corrected a critical crash that occurred when the tool was used on POSIX systems (but not Windows) with files containing non-ASCII characters.
