Having a graphical representation of a tree command

0 votes
asked Oct 17 in Wanted features by Antonio

The tree command is really useful to show a directory structure... but it would be nicer with an image.

It would be great to have a graphical representation of the `tree` command. You just copy/past the output into a PlantUML diagram, and you get a nice image:

rest-fight/
├── pom.xml
└── src
    ├── main
    │   ├── java
    │   │   └── io
    │   │       └── quarkus

This will help. Thanks !

Some flatter structure :

.
├── extension-architecture.puml
├── introduction-physical-architecture.puml
├── messaging-architecture.puml
├── microservices-physical-architecture.puml
├── observability-physical-architecture.puml
├── quarkus-http-architecture.puml
├── rest-physical-architecture.puml
└── style.puml

And the same but from a different root directory (. is replaced by the directory name)

plantuml/
├── extension-architecture.puml
├── introduction-physical-architecture.puml
├── messaging-architecture.puml
├── microservices-physical-architecture.puml
├── observability-physical-architecture.puml
├── quarkus-http-architecture.puml
├── rest-physical-architecture.puml
└── style.puml

There's a tree widget with Salt:

@startsalt
{
{T
+ World
++ America
+++ Canada
+++ USA
++++ New York
++++ Boston
+++ Mexico
++ Europe
+++ Italy
+++ Germany
++++ Berlin
++ Africa
}
}
@endsalt

With this in mind, would it be sufficient to have a script that translates `tree` output to the correct Salt input? From the top of my head I came up with this:

tree --noreport | sed -e 's/├── \|└── /+ /g' -e 's/│   \|    /+/g' -e 's/^/+/'

You need to fix a space in the 1st line manually, though.
