I polished up an old project from 2008, CellRename: a file-rename utility with a spreadsheet-like UI. Take a look at my brand new Github to download (supported on Windows and Linux).
- setting filename based on pattern (or append numbers like 001, 002, etc)
- adding a prefix / suffix
- search/replace within filenames
- regex replace within filenames
- if you copy a file path, cellrename will automatically start in that directory
I tested on Win XP, Win7, Win8, Ubuntu Linux, Fedora Linux, Mageia Linux, and Mint Linux. Credit pyinstaller as a great Python stand-alone tool.
This is only the beginning; there are many more half hour hacks to be unfurled.
