Linux Tip: How to create a list of directories inside a directory and place an empty file in each of them


Today, I wanted to create a list of directories inside a directory and place an empty file in each of them. In this quick post, I will share two commands that can do that for you.

$ mkdir $(printf "%02i-day " $(seq 1 50))
$ find . -type d -exec touch {}/.gitkeep \;

You don’t have to type $. It is only to signify command-prompt.
