    Handling time-stamps and date-stamps in file names

    Hi, I plan to add this to https://github.com/novoid/date2name which is a command line tool. I have not found out how to integrate command line tools on macOS to the context menu of the finder in a sane way like this tool provides for Windows File Explorer and probably GNU/Linux geeqie in future. It would be peachy if somebody has input on that. (I don't have access to macOS.)

  • integratethis

    Integrate programs or scripts into common tools like Windows Explorer context menu

  • filetagslib

    Utility library for providing functions related to the filetags file name convention: https://github.com/novoid/filetags

    Currently, I do have to build a library which supports date/time tasks.

  • appendfilename

    Intelligent appending text to file names, considering file extensions and file tags

    If that library is done and integrated to date2name and appendfilename, you should be able to fix all date- and timestamps whose elements are in the order of ISO 8601.
