Project description


Refactor your software using programming language independent string replacement.

Helps by renaming directories, filenames and file contents in a case-preserving manner.

rebrand demo

How does it work

Imagine we want to rename a library called SomeThing to AnotherName.

It will first normalize "SomeThing" to ["some", "thing"] and "AnotherName" to ["another", "name"], and build patterns on this.

Then, when matching and replacing, it will memorize the casing pattern and separator on e.g. "Some-thing" to replace it with the same convention, like so: "Another-name".

This works for:

  • filenames
  • directories
  • file contents

Binaries are just copied, and warnings are currently shown for png and jpg files containing logo or icon.


pip install rebrand


rebrand <OLD> <NEW> <LOCATION> (optional: <DESTINATION>)
# e.g. rebrand ancient modern .


  • Implement radically faster matching
  • More options (such as disabling image warnings, verbosity, ignore patterns)
  • Switch from fire back to argparse
