Rename photo image files based on EXIF shoot date (Haskell)


photoname is a command-line utility for renaming/moving photo image files. The new folder location and naming are determined by the photo shoot date information contained within the file's EXIF tags.

Getting source

  • Download the cabalized source package from Hackage
  • epub-tools is available for Arch Linux from the AUR
  • Get the source with darcs: $ darcs get
  • If you're just looking, browse the source

And once you have it, building the usual way:

$ cabal configure --enable-tests
$ cabal build
$ cabal test
$ cabal install


Build and install with cabal-install: $ cabal update ; cabal install photoname
