nflz - Numbered Filenames With Leading Zeros - CLI + Library
nflz is a CLI-Tool + library that helps you to add leading zeros to numbered filenames in ascending order.
What it does
Content of some directory:
paris (1).png => paris (01).png paris (2).png => paris (02).png ... paris (12).png => paris (12).png ... paris (n).png => n digits => indicator for how many zeros to add
Install / use
nflz = "<latest-version>"
$ cargo install nflz
How it works
It either works in pwd (present working dir) or in the directory passed as the first argument.
$ nflz $ nflz <absolute or relative path to dir>
nflz asks you for confirmation before it does any changes to your file system!
If you select multiple files in Windows Explorer and rename them to the same name, Windows automatically numbers all files for you. The downside is that there are no leading zeros. Other programs than Windows, e.g. Google Drive, can't order the files properly without the leading zeros. Here comes my CLI into the game!
