Today I’m happy to announce the next release of Marta! In the following, I will describe some notable changes. As always, you can read the full list of them in the changelog.


Many years ago, I used WinDirStat to find huge files on my PC. Now I’m on Mac, and I really missed its simplicity. Of course, there are a number of analogs, but none of them seemed convenient to me, not mentioning the fact that some of them cost good money.

But wait, why not implement such a utility just inside Marta? It already has everything for this! So I thought, and then I made DirStat.

DirStat action

DirStat is a Marta plugin that calculates size of all files and directories in a particular place, including nested directories. So when your disk is running out of space, you can easily find what to delete firstly. 💎

The good news is that you do not need to install anything – it is available out-of-the-box. Just press ⌘⇧P, type “DirStat” and here you are.

ZIP file support enhancements

Two weeks ago, when I announced the write support for ZIP archives, I said that you can do any write operations like copying or deleting. Well, there was one nuance: you couldn’t change nested archives. So now you can.

Also, Edit action now not only caches the file but also writes the changes from the cached copy back to the file system. In other words, you can edit files inside archives.

Have a nice Marta! ☀️
