I'm unable to run this from the command line:

❯ ./node_modules/.bin/renamer -d -p case --case kebab svg/*.svg
Dry run
✔︎ svg/Alert-30.svg → svg/alert-30.svg 
Unable to rename svg/Alert-30.svg to svg/alert-30.svg [file exists]

The script stops on the first file, claiming it can't be renamed because the file already exists. I'm on macOS 10.15.

Ah! I knew that, but actually thought renamer would handle that for me. Using --force makes sense though. Thanks for fast reply!
