Cheat Sheet

lsd is a modern, cross-platform, drop-in replacement for ls. It does everything that you expect it to, plus modern extras that you can check out with lsd --help.

Note: You must install the nerdfont and update the font in your Terminal for lsd to show icons.

Run lsd exactly as you would ls:


But wait, there's more, you can tree as well:

lsd --tree

How to turn off icons and colors

If you just want the benefits of a cross-platform ls without having to install nerdfont or needing a modern terminal, you've got options:

lsd --icon=never --color=never

Since that can be a little awkward to type over and over, you can use an alias:

alias lsd=lsd --icon=never --color=never

How to alias as ls, ll, la, etc

Update your .bashrc, .zshrc, or .profile

alias ls="lsd"
alias la="lsd -A"
alias ll="lsd -l"
alias lg="lsd --group-dirs=first"

For situations in which you must use ls exactly, remember that you can escape the alias:


How to alias as tree

Update your .bashrc, .zshrc, or .profile

alias tree="lsd --tree"

And when you want to use GNU tree, just escape the alias:
