NAME
       exa - a modern replacement for ls

SYNOPSIS
       exa [options] [files]...

DESCRIPTION
       exa is a	modern replacement for ls.  It uses colours for	information by
       default,	helping	you distinguish	between	many types of files,  such  as
       whether	you  are the owner, or in the owning group.  It	also has extra
       features	not present in the original ls,	such as	viewing	the Git	status
       for a directory,	or recursing into directories with a tree view.

DISPLAY	OPTIONS
       -1, --oneline
	      display one entry	per line

       -G, --grid
	      display entries as a grid	(default)

       -l, --long
	      display extended file metadata as	a table

       -x, --across
	      sort the grid across, rather than	downwards

       -R, --recurse
	      recurse into directories

       -T, --tree
	      recurse into directories as a tree

       --color,	--colour=WHEN
	      when to use terminal colours (always, automatic, never)

       --color-scale, --colour-scale
	      highlight	levels of file sizes distinctly

FILTERING AND SORTING OPTIONS
       -a, --all

       -d, --list-dirs
	      list directories like regular files

       -r, --reverse
	      reverse the sort order

       -s, --sort=SORT_FIELD
	      which field to sort by.  Valid fields are	name, Name, extension,
	      Extension, size, modified, accessed, created, inode,  and	 none.
	      Fields starting with a capital letter are	case-sensitive.

       -I, --ignore-glob=GLOBS
	      Glob patterns, pipe-separated, of	files to ignore

       --group-directories-first

       -b, --binary
	      list file	sizes with binary prefixes

       -B, --bytes
	      list file	sizes in bytes,	without	any prefixes

       -g, --group

       -i, --inode
	      list each	file's inode number

       -L, --level=DEPTH
	      limit the	depth of recursion

       -m, --modified
	      use the modified timestamp field

       -S, --blocks
	      list each	file's number of file system blocks

       -t, --time=WORD
	      which timestamp field to list (modified, accessed, created)

       -u, --accessed
	      use the accessed timestamp field

       -U, --created
	      use the created timestamp	field

       -@, --extended
