Display disk usage on macOS with du command

You can get disk usage on MacOS by using du command.

$ du -d 1 -h
200M  ./Amazon Music.app
6.1M  ./Android File Transfer.app
1.9M  ./App Store.app
...

-d option means depth. du outputs result for all files which is too much, so -d 1 option is needed.

-h option means human-readable. This option add unit suffixes such as Byte, Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte.

If you want to filter result by unit:

du -d 1 -h | grep -e "\dG"
2.0G  ./iMovie.app
1.3G  ./iPhoto.app
8.2G  .
