Sorting your downloads directory can be tedious, especially if you want to move files to destinations that aren’t immediate subdirectories. Worse, there is no one-size-fits all viewer that can handle static images, animated gifs, and video files all at once.
This is where triage.py comes in.
This python script allows you to select a set of source files and a set of destination folders, then do all the work from the command line.
$ triage.py dest1/ /path/to/dest2 -- *.png
Deciding what to do with /path/to/downloads/1256_h_lg.png
handling image /path/to/downloads/1256_h_lg.png
/path/to/downloads/1256_h_lg.png is 621x189 PNG image, color type RGB_ALPHA, 8 bit
s) skip this file for now
l) look at it again
1) move file to dest1/
2) move file to dest2/
The syntax is “triage.py”, up to 10 destination directories, “–“, and a set of files. triage.py makes use of xview, gifview, and mplayer for viewing files.
