A few years ago I wrote a small Python script to organize the photos uploaded from your phone to Dropbox. Lately, I have been rewriting some of my python scripts to golang for practice and also performance.
All photos are uploaded to Dropbox with a name pattern like 2018-08-01 05.56.40.jpg. What all it does is to parse the date and move it to the right place, for example, 2018-08-01 will move it to a folder called 08-August inside 2018.
You can also download the compiled file below, just make sure you make it executable with
chmod +x organize_photos
and run it with
Really useful script but (and sorry for my ignorance) how can I “install” this script?
Can I do this on my desktop installation (Mac)?
I understand that I have to put the .py file (which I didn’t find in the website) in the camera upload folder and then run terminal command. After all the comment I ve read do you have a final version of this file available?
Hey there, this is the Golang version and not the python one.
Go to this page https://www.danielandrade.net/2014/02/16/script-to-organize-dropboxs-camera-upload-folder/ save the file inside the ‘Camera Upload’ folder as organize.py
Change the fold path ` folder = ‘/Users/admin/Dropbox/Camera Uploads/’ ` to match yours.
Then run the script with `python organize.py`.
Remember that you need to run it on the terminal.
Let me know if you need more help!
