I'm happy to take contributions.
Here's some ideas:
dufor calculating disk usage. This won't work in Windows.
duusing native code. Ideas?
--debugand to get some debug info that will be helpful for creating tickets.
Super awesome and prolific node module creator Sindre Sorhus has a repo for sharing ideas for new modules. On Feb 10, 2016, I submitted a proposal for space-hogs: cli for discovering surprisingly large directories. There was a lot of interest, but nobody else created it, so I decided to see if I could.
