Python CLI application to split and join files for easy transfer via external media.

Project description

Splitipy is a utility built with python which lets you split your files into multiple small pieces which you can send/transfer/isolate easily for convenience.

After you’re done, gather all the pieces, run this utility again and get back your original file.


When you split a file, it will be converted into multiple parts based on the size of the file and the max file size as passed as argument as file.ext.1, file.ext.2, file.ext.3 and so on.

splitipy file.ext

After you are done with the operation or transfers, to combine the file back. Gather the pieces and run:

splitipy –join file.ext

and it will generate the file join-file.ext in the same folder.


Make sure you have python and pip installed and then run:

>>> pip install splitipy

Situation before installation:

>>> splitipy
bash: splitipy: command not found

Now, the splitipy command is available:

>>> splitipy --version

On Unix-like systems, the installation places a splitipy script into a centralized bin directory, which should be in your PATH. On Windows, splitipy.exe is placed into a centralized Scripts directory which should also be in your PATH.
