Is there a tool for nice, modern looking visualization of folder (with cloned GIT repository) structure in Linux? I know there is command tree but it outputs "ugly", text based results. What I'm looking for is some JPG/PNG/... looking result, possibly in chart form.

EDIT: Just found treeviz it is good but I would prefer something more "traditional" :)

EDIT2: Sample what it be perfect ouptut link

desired diagram

So do you want traditional or modern? – Rob Mar 24 '12 at 18:27
fair enough... Something like this – ladar Mar 24 '12 at 18:32
I thought there was something like that on the page. There's something called theJIT (javascript info visualizer thing) that has exactly that and calls it spacetree, it's a good place to start searching. – Rob Mar 24 '12 at 18:41

The usual answer for this sort of requirement is to have a script generate a graph description that you feed to something like GraphViz or aisee

For example

Thanks, especially for the script on the link :) – ladar Mar 24 '12 at 21:01

Gource produces very sleek file structure visualization of VCS. It produces video, but you can speed it up using + and take a screenshot using F12.
