The tree command on macos

Long story short, this is another one of these “nothing special and a lot of people probably already know about it” things that just blew my mind when I found out about it 😅

Install it

brew install tree

Use it

tree --help

# e.g. list current directory 3 levels deep
tree . -L 3
