cec ls

List files in your Cells server



List files in your Cells server.


Use as a normal ls, with additional path to list sub-folders or read info about a node. You can use one of the below optional flags: - d (--details) flag to display more information, - r (--raw) flag to only list the paths of found files and folders - f (--exists) flag to only check if given path exists on the server.

Note that you can only use one of the three above flags at a time.


1/ Listing the content of the personal-files workspace

$ ./cec ls personal-files +--------+--------------------------+ | TYPE | NAME | +--------+--------------------------+ | Folder | . | | File | Huge Photo-1.jpg | | File | Huge Photo.jpg | | File | IMG_9723.JPG | | File | P5021040.jpg | | Folder | UPLOAD | | File | anothercopy | | File | cec22 | | Folder | recycle_bin | | File | test_crud-1545206681.txt | | File | test_crud-1545206846.txt | | File | test_file2.txt | +--------+--------------------------+
