pypi version downloads build status python versions format license


Organize the Slippi game files in your filesystem according to their attributes.


With Python installed, simply run the following command to add the package to your project.

python -m pip install treefrog



Currently, the package supports organizing the files according to a supplied ordering of parsers, flattening the files against the supplied root folder, and renaming all the files according to their attributes. These may be accomplished programmatically with the use of the Tree class or through the command-line interface.


The organize method serves the purpose of moving each game file found (deeply or otherwise) under the root folder to its proper location according to the supplied ordering of parsers. If no ordering is given, then treefrog will use its default. Here is a simple example of calling this method:

from treefrog import Tree
from treefrog.parse.parsers import year, month, matchup, stage

ordering = (
) # An iterable of the desired levels of the hierarchy

with Tree("slp/", show_progress=True) as tree:
    tree.organize(ordering) # Organize the files into subfolders according to the supplied attributes

Feel free to provide your own logic for formatting the names of the folders at a particular level with a corresponding iterable of functions:

from treefrog import Tree
from treefrog.parse.parsers import year, month, stage
from treefrog.parse.utils import character_name, most_used_character, opponent, user

def ordered_matchup(game):
    p1 = user(game, "DTB#566")
    p2 = opponent(game, "DTB#566")
    return f"{character_name(most_used_character(p1))} vs {character_name(most_used_character(p2))}"

ordering = (
    lambda game: opponent(game, "DTB#566").netplay.code,

with Tree("slp/", show_progress=True) as tree:

Any custom parser you provide will need to be a Callable that takes in a Game instance and returns a str.

Further, you can use cascading methods to simplify your programming. Each of the methods organize, flatten, and rename will return a reference to the instance object on which it was called. Something like this: tree.organize().rename() will both organize and rename the game files.


The flatten method serves the simple purpose of moving each game file found (deeply or otherwise) under the root folder back to the root folder itself. Here's an example of what calling this method may look like:

from treefrog import Tree

tree = Tree("slp/")

Note that you do not have to use Tree with a context manager. If you do not use the with keyword as in the first couple of examples, you will need to end your operations with a call to the resolve method in order to see the changes reflected in your filesystem.


The rename method simply renames each game file according to its attributes. Without a rename function supplied, treefrog will use the default_filename function found in the treefrog.rename module. Alternatively, you may provide your own rename function as shown below:

from treefrog import Tree
from treefrog.parse.parsers import stage, timestamp
from treefrog.parse.utils import character_name, characters

def create_filename(game: Game):
    p1, p2 = tuple(characters(game))
    return f"{timestamp(game)} - {character_name(p1)} vs {character_name(p2)} - {stage(game)}.slp"

with Tree("slp/") as tree:


This is also command-line program, and can be executed as follows:

python -m treefrog [-h] [-g GLOB] [-c NETPLAY_CODE] [-p] [-d] [-o | -f] [-r] root_folder


Argument Description
root_folder Slippi folder root path
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-g GLOB, --glob GLOB The glob pattern to search with
-c NETPLAY_CODE, --netplay-code NETPLAY_CODE Netplay code (e.g. DTB#566)
-p, --show-progress Whether to show a progress bar
-d, --default-rename Whether to restore the filenames to their defaults
-o, --organize Whether to organize the folder hierarchy
-f, --flatten Whether to flatten your Slippi game files to a shared parent folder
-r, --rename Whether to rename the files according to their features

For example, the following command will organize all the game files under the slp directory with a progress bar.

python -m treefrog "slp" -c "DTB#566" -op
