Group files by date
Over the years, I’ve taken a lot of photos on my phone, and it’s hard to keep them organized properly. Large directories of files don’t play nicely with Nextcloud, my storage of choice.
date-group is my tool to solve this. Give it a directory of files, and it’ll group them into directories by year and month. It gets the date in a couple ways:
- Image EXIF data
- Parse the filename
I originally wrote the tool in Python, but ported it to Rust for easier deployment, quite a performance improvement, and of course a safer implementation.
