art with code

Visual disk usage app using Mono


Continuing on my epic quest to learn .NET and GUI dev with Mono, I wrote today a small du-clone that renders the result visually using Cairo. As you might guess from the color scheme, I'm thinking of integrating it into my desktop theme as a file manager (hey, what good is a theme if you have to use apps that don't conform to the look...)

This one has a GitHub repo as well, http://github.com/kig/filezoo/tree/master

The next thing I'm going to do is add a click handler that navigates the directories and calls gnome-open on the files.
