On start up, it reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views:

- The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away,
- The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types.

Hashids is a small open-source library that generates short, unique, non-sequential ids from numbers.
It converts numbers like 347 into strings like “yr8”, or array of numbers like [27, 986] into “3kTMd”.
You can also decode those ids back. This is useful in bundling several parameters into one or simply using them as short UIDs.
