List contents of directories in a tree-like format

Problem

You have a large directory structure and you want to visualize it in a tree-like format.

Solution

Use the tree command for this. First, install it:

sudo apt-get install tree

Examples:

tree -d

To display directories only.

tree -d -I "Sample|Subs|Extras|Sub|Vobsub"

Display directories and exclude directories that match the pattern (i.e. don’t show the Sample, Subs, …, Vobsub directories).

For more info, refer to “man tree”.
