Tree keeping made easy

If you want snazzy tree views for your project of your local drive files and the remote master repository that you can traverse with a browser, just modify this script and set up a cronjob to keep your trees updated.

How does it look?

Download the file itself, load it into your browser and have fun traversing the tree of the Corinthia GitHub repository. (blogger.com and google.drive won't let me paste the file without crippling the links, fair enough, it's 168 directories (and thus links) and usually people who do this kind of thing would probably be up to no good[1]).  If you just want to see it without working links, it's here.

I think it's nice to have a tree overview --- a picture is worth a 1000 words (as they say).

[1] sadly, saving the document also ninja-edits the original.  So, don't waste your time with pasting lots of links into Google Docs :(
