Find files by type and count the number of lines they contain
The following command can be used to find all files of a certain type and count the number of lines they contain. This is useful if you want to see how many lines of code a project contains.
First, you'll need to
cd to your project directory.
$ find . -name '*.js' | xargs wc -l 3 ./sandbox/back-to-top-button/js/back-to-top-button.js 6 ./sandbox/tabbed-columns/js/tabbed-column.js 19 ./themes/custom/assets/js/index.js 28 total
The numbers on the left represent the number of lines containing in the file to the right. At the bottom, the number of lines are summed up for all files.
