    A more intuitive version of du in rust

    Rust is a popular up and coming language one of the advantages of the languages is that it is fast. Its speed inspired programmers to rewrite just about every command-line tool. 'du' is no exception, and 'dust' is that rewrite. It is incredibly fast and ergonomic and my go-to when checking my disk space.

  • dua-cli

    View disk space usage and delete unwanted data, fast.

    Speaking of rust; there's also the excellent dua-cli but if you like ncdu better, I recommend ncdu2, created by the maker of ncdu.
