Project description

Selective Copy

Python Version PyPi Version License Codacy Badge

Simple command line application that copies all files with given extensions from a directory and its subfolders to another directory showing progress bar and remaining files counter.
Allows to preserve a source folder structure, to process only files without given extensions, to move files instead of copying, to exclude certain files from processing and to create a log if necessary.
Opens a filedialog if source and/or destination are not given in the command line.
Creates folders in a destination path if they don't exist.
