Torta shows you where your disk space is going. Torta uses the graphical format used by the the awesome program filelight to represent disk usage.

Unlike filelight, Torta can be run on a computer with no graphical environment: it generates a flash file that can be consulted, locally or remotelly, using any browser that has the flash plugin installed.

Torta uses Gordon, a library that provides flash generation functionality.

Torta is implemented in the common lisp language, so you need to have a common lisp implementation installed. In theory, any Common Lisp implementation should work, but I have only tested Torta under SBCL, CMUCL and CLisp. Finally, torta makes use of the unix utility du which is installed on most unix like systems. I have tested torta succesfully on Debian and Solaris operating systems.


Torta provides only one function:

(torta:torta "/path/to/a/directory/" "output.swf")
