Hacklet: tree

If you're not using tree to look at directories recursuvely, you're missing out!

OSX:

brew install tree

Linux:

apt-get install tree

Now do tree . and enjoy!

Here's a sample (django-centric):

.
└── mysite
    ├── manage.py
    └── mysite
        ├── __init__.py
        ├── settings.py
        ├── urls.py
        └── wsgi.py

Much better than ls -laRt in my opinion.
