  • GitHub repo edit-filenames

    edit-filenames for systems with Python

  • GitHub repo disk-usage

    Mirror of the disk-usage package from GNU ELPA, current as of 2022-01-21

    That's kind of slow to reuse and cumbersome, I'd recommend ncdu or Emacs' disk-usage (it's significantly faster than dired-du and doesn't require ls-lisp emulation hacks to sort by size for directories too).

  • GitHub repo dua-cli

    View disk space usage and delete unwanted data, fast.

    Best I've found are dua and f2.

  • GitHub repo f2

    F2 is a cross-platform command-line tool for batch renaming files and directories quickly and safely. Written in Go!

    Best I've found are dua and f2.

  • GitHub repo duf

    Disk Usage/Free Utility - a better 'df' alternative

  • GitHub repo fsearch

    A fast file search utility for Unix-like systems based on GTK+3

  • GitHub repo QDirStat

    QDirStat - Qt-based directory statistics (KDirStat without any KDE - from the original KDirStat author)

    Qdirstat is awesome. Still well maintained by the original author of Kdirstat (which inspired the very popular Windows clone, Windirstat). All Free and Open Source!

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo Video-Hub-App

    Official repository for Video Hub App

    This is a bit of a tangent perhaps, but for video organization you could try Video Hub App - software I wrote: - it also has functionality to find duplicate videos.
