How to use Tokei

Basic usage

This is the basic way to use tokei. Which will report on the code in ./foo and all subfolders.

$ tokei ./foo

Multiple folders

To have tokei report on multiple folders in the same call simply add a comma, or a space followed by another path.

$ tokei ./foo ./bar ./baz
$ tokei ./foo, ./bar, ./baz

Excluding folders

Tokei will respect all .gitignore and .ignore files, and you can use the --exclude option to exclude any additional files. The --exclude flag has the same semantics as .gitignore.

$ tokei ./foo --exclude *.rs

Sorting output

By default tokei sorts alphabetically by language name, however using --sort tokei can also sort by any of the columns.

blanks, code, comments, lines

$ tokei ./foo --sort code

Outputting file statistics

By default tokei only outputs the total of the languages, and using --files flag tokei can also output individual file statistics.

$ tokei ./foo --files

Outputting into different formats

Tokei normally outputs into a nice human readable format designed for terminals. There is also using the --output option various other formats that are more useful for bringing the data into another program.

Note: This version of tokei was compiled without any serialization formats, to enable serialization, reinstall tokei with the features flag.

  ALL:
  cargo install tokei --features all

  JSON:
  cargo install tokei --features json

  CBOR:
  cargo install tokei --features cbor

  YAML:
  cargo install tokei --features yaml

  CBOR:
  cargo install tokei --features cbor

Currently supported formats

  • JSON --output json
  • YAML --output yaml
  • TOML --output toml
  • CBOR --output cbor
$ tokei ./foo --output json

Reading in stored formats

Tokei can also take in the outputted formats added in the previous results to it's current run. Tokei can take either a path to a file, the format passed in as a value to the option, or from stdin.

$ tokei ./foo --input ./stats.json

Badges

Tokei has support for badges. For example .

[![](https://tokei.rs/b1/github/XAMPPRocky/tokei)](https://github.com/XAMPPRocky/tokei).

Tokei's URL scheme is as follows.

https://tokei.rs/b1/{host: values: github|gitlab}/{Repo Owner eg: XAMPPRocky}/{Repo name eg: tokei}

By default the badge will show the repo's LoC(Lines of Code), you can also specify for it to show a different category, by using the ?category= query string. It can be either code, blanks, files, lines, comments, Example show total lines:

[![](https://tokei.rs/b1/github/XAMPPRocky/tokei?category=lines)](https://github.com/XAMPPRocky/tokei).

The server code hosted on tokei.rs is in XAMPPRocky/tokei_rs

Plugins

Thanks to contributors tokei is now available as a plugin for some text editors.

Common issues

Tokei says I have a lot of D code, but I know there is no D code!

This is likely due to gcc generating .d files. Until the D people decide on a different file extension, you can always exclude .d files using the -e --exclude flag like so

$ tokei . -e *.d
