NANY 2010 Entry Information
|Short Description||A simple, graphical application that scans a directory tree and reports any duplicate files found|
|Supported OSes||Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, MacOS/X (and possibly others like OpenSolaris)|
|Web Page||The beginnings of a wiki|
I have a nasty habit of having very cluttered file systems. I tend to download things like assignment PDFs, forget about them and download them again. For the reason of tidying my forest of clutter I wrote this application initially as a CLI python script. However around the same time, app103, a user here told me about NANY on IRC. I thought that I just happen to have written something that is probably useful to other people so why not join in!
DupFind is essentially that script but with a spiffy GUI. Not many people today live on the command line like myself so a nice user interface was key. For this I used the pyQt Qt bindings.
DupFind will be released as free (as in freedom) software, and will probably be GPL'd. This means you can do with it as you want as long as credit is given and it remains free.
- Simple GUI.
- Finds all (exact) duplicates in a directory tree.
- Auto cleanup.
- Concurrent scanning/hashing. (Maybe)
- Database features.
Right now just execute dupfind.py (installer maybe later)
Using the Application
As of now it should be intuitive.
