This program watches a specified number of directories and matches any *new*
files (whether copied, moved, downloaded, or otherwise) against the rules
loaded from the config file. If there is a match, it executes the action
tied to the rule.



  PyNotify (package python-notify)


No installation necessary (or available yet, for that matter)


Configuration files may be created with the included ire-config-gtk tool or
built manually. The settings file is built with JSON, so it is human readable.

Creating A Config File By Hand

In the rules list, add a new rule with the following data:
  Name: the name of the rule
  Description: a description of the rule
  Pattern Condition: one of "AND" or "OR". Determines how multiple applied
    patterns affect whether the rule matches.
  Pattern List: a list of patterns. Style is the name of the pattern (check out
    pattern_list in for a complete list of available patterns).
    Pattern is the string passed to the pattern matcher.
  Action Type: The name of the action (check out the ire.actions package
    for a list of all available actions).
  Action Args: A dict of arguments passed to the action. Arguments are Action
    dependent, so have a look in form_display of the action class for the
    necessary arguments. Possible text substitutions are available in

Creating A New Pattern

Create a new class in with a the following:
  displayname - a string with the pattern name that should be displayed to a
    user in the graphical interface
  match - a static method that accepts a pattern and an argument as parameters.
    The pattern is provided in the save file, the argument is the filename
    being matched against. Returns True on match, False otherwise.
Then add the class' name (as a string) to the pattern_list list at the top of
the file.

Creating A New Action

Create a module in ire.actions with a class with three attributes:
  displayname - The display name of the action.
  form_display - a tuple of action-argument tuples. The action-argument
    tuples should contain the name of the argument, a displayname,
    and a description.
  trigger - a static method accepting the action-arguments that are necessary
    to run the action (usually as **kwargs)
    This should run the action with the provided arguments and a few internal
    arguments (found in function EventHandler.sub_args).
Then add a line to for your action:
  import_action('class', frm='module')
