apparently whatsize is abandonware. can anyone confirm? am i just overlooking the existence of a version that supports apfs?

I am using version 6.6.3 fine, running macOS 10.13.6 on a MacBook Pro 2017 with an SSD using APFS.

interesting. i got an error: “macOS Version 10.14.2 (Build 18C54) is not supported at this time. We are working to add support soon.” i’ve got 6.5.3. that offered to update to 6.6.3 but the process just hung. tried to visit their site and got validation errors - expired certificate. thus my question.

thanks for the confirmation that 6.6.3 works on apfs, though.

I can access https://whatsizemac.com fine, but the release notes stop here:

Version 6.6.3: Monday November 27, 2017

  • Compatibility with macOS High Sierra (10.13)
  • General bug fixes

I used to use WhatSize, but have been using GrandPerspective for a while. Runs on Mojave. Can’t speak to the differences in interface, but certainly does basics. Quoting below:

GrandPerspective is a small utility application for Mac that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system. It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space. It uses a so called tree map for visualisation. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file’s size. Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary.

APFS was introduced with High Sierra, so I doubt there were any changes required for Mojave.
