Not open-source, but still worth trying
Very capable bulk file renaming utility. The interface can be a bit cluttered but it's not too hard to get the hang of things. A great option with a lot of functionality.
Please note that recently developer removed earlier all versions and the changelog didn't show anything special. It was fishy, so I checked it and developer changed license for stricter. Because that change I can't use it anymore. I'm ok with the fact of different license - it's his software. But he did it in shady way and that's not good. Remember, when changelog is weirdly empty, then big things happen :)
BRU is THE best batch file renamed I have found throughout the years. It is really easy to use in a way and if it's interface looks confusing, it might be because people think you need to tinker with all of them. These are not options you need to alter every time, as much as is all it's different ways to rename files, but you see them all spread on it's window. You might need to use from only a single of these option up to a combination of things you want. It has a preview window, showing how your actions will affect the file and it can either rename a while folder or any of the files you select.
5 stars for me, as it has helped me rename files multiple times, from removing specific Symbols from the file name I did not want to numbering in order collections.
I suggest people try it if they are lookign for a batch renamer.
Legible but unforgiving UI, takes a good while to learn what each function does. Useless in renaming files across multiple folders. Sorting selected files are a nightmare and it doesn't support drag and drop of multiple files. Wish there were options to toggle renaming features that I'll never use.
Awesome free app! Gets the job done with an outstanding range of features and ease of use.
This is an amazing program that can rename a bunch of files according to a certain pattern. It's great for renaming many downloaded MP4 episodes to your favourite naming rule. It also works through the context menu for convenience. I would highly recommend it!
