Brief duf is a terminal tool meant as an enhancement to the traditional 8220df8221 and 8220du8221 Linux commands. It lets you easily check for free disk space sort the output and present it in a user-friendly manner. .
Before I knew about this utility I preferred using a GUI program like Stacer or the pre-installed GNOME Disk usage app to check free disk space and the disk usage numbers for my system.
However duf seems to be a useful terminal tool to check disk usage and free space that is written in Golang. Even though Abhishek suggested me to give this a try I found it more interesting especially considering that I8217m currently learning Golang what a coincidence.
It is fairly easy to use no matter whether you are a terminal guru or just a beginner not comfortable with the terminal. It is certainly easier to understand than the df command for checking disk space utilization.
