FolderToList automatically creates lists from selected folders. The application is particularly useful for them who have to create CDs or DVDs and need to write long indexes in order to know the content of the media without using the Mac.

Love this simple little app. Works flawlessly. Developer is quick to reply, very thoughtful, helpful and actually cares about his customers; (even at these highly affordable prices). If you're at all like many of my friends and I, you'll probably find yourself using it much more than you may have anticipated when you first bought it.

Great thing CAN come in small packages. ;-)

Highly recommended!

This is one of those "less is more" programs, where it does just one primary thing, and is useful in doing such. Like one person commented, copying and pasting from open windows doesn't provide a pasteable list (things are in odd order and multi-level lists are useless).
This keeps things sorted and allows numbering, and the ability to list just folders, just files, or both from within a single folder.
All it needs now are three final things (IMHO):
1. a very small help file in the about or help menus, just to give a brief explanation of how things work -- only about 6 sentences would cover it.
2. The ability to add recursive folder listings to the list, represented by either a tab or a specified number of spaces for each level.
3. Drag-and-drop of the specified folder into the window, for selection.
(It's hard to give a program that only does one basic thing, 5 stars for features, but add the recursive feature, drag&drop, and maybe the ability to log file sizes, and I'd have no choice but to give it fives across the board.

Thanks!

This feels like a beta. The output is not polished enough to be really useful. Export options are none existent. Really limited. A nice idea, with potential, but poorly executed.

"There's a bug with Mac OS X 10.2.8 causing the application to crash at the start up.
I hope I'll fix it as soon as possible. " -- from developer's Readme file.

"10.2.8 or higher" -- from program info listing on MacUpdate.

So what good does it do to list this as a Jaguar program if it doesn't work in Jaguar?

Drag and drop of folders to the app window or dock would help. Tooltips would helo also, and the app icon is a bit confusing (looks like a regular folder).

I will tell what it does... it saves me time! Unless it's just me, when I copy the contents of a folder and paste it into a page layout program or text editor, the list is NOT in correct alpha order, even though it was in alpha order in the finder window. I have to generate lists of .pdf files and this is a time-saver.

Have you ever tried to just select the content of a folder type command+c and then paste as text in a text-document?

what does this do that ls -R | see doesn't?

Well, on my fresh OS X installation, ls -R | see does exactly nothing, so I guess this app does plenty of things that your suggestion doesn't...

Another alternative (if you're into CLI) is installing tree via Homebrew, then cd into folder and e.g. tree | pbpaste or tree > foldername.txt
