FolderLister - Ever wanted to print or email a directory listing of a certain folder in plain text format in Mac OS X? Yeah you can do it from the terminal but that's not what an ordinary Aqua user wants.

With FolderLister for Mac OSX you can drag any folder onto the FolderLister icon and in a text box you will get a full directory listing in plain text format.

You can set options to display full file infos, recursively list all subfolders and include hidden files.

So okay yes it's a wrapper for /bin/ls but many people don't know UNIX you know!

What's New

Version 1.01:
  • Some bug fixes
  • Universal Binary

came across this by pure fluke. but its just what i was looking for a few months ago! the simplicity is great :) something like export to .txt etc. would be nice. thank you very much developer! i don't know why tools like these aren't more popular.

So you're basically piping Terminal output into your own window and putting your banner on top?

See, the reason Unix is and Windows isn't, is because there's a minimalist, elegant design philosophy: don't add unnecessary code, don't reinvent the wheel. The ‘ls' command is already there, so why rewrite it?

I guess if you see a fancy window you want fancy output. But does it need to do anything ‘ls' doesn't? Maybe list things in the same format as Finder list views, with filetype identifiers and so on. It wouldn't be so hard to loop through each file and use ‘file' on it. A bit of sed and awk to clean up the output and Bob's your uncle.

Nice little app that basically does "ls" commands but very handy if you need to list folders a lot.
