A modern replacement for ls
exa is an improved file lister with more features and better defaults. It uses colours to distinguish file types and metadata. It knows about symlinks, extended attributes, and Git. And it’s small, fast, and just one single binary.
Example output for
exa -l --git.
In the evening I installed exa on Ubuntu 19.04 running in a virtual machine:
sudo apt install exa
I use this virtual Ubuntu installation for some programming projects.
Having read about
exa a few weeks ago I decided to give it a try. So
far I like it a lot.
