Quick update:

I've since discovered exa, an alternative to ls.

"exa is an improved file lister with more features and better defaults. It
uses colours to distinguish file types and metadata. It knows about
symlinks, extended attributes, and Git. And it’s small, fast, and just one
single binary."


It's at sysutils/exa in the FreeBSD ports tree.
