Plexify is a file organizer tool to manage medias. It analyses files and search for movies in TheMovieDB to have informations about them and create good folder names and add some additional stuffs like posters, desriptions (these two lasts aren't supported yet, but will be ;))


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'plexify'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install plexify


Plexify is compatible with

ruby 1.9.3


Plexify analyses files and move them to an oranized folder, so it creates destination folders and media folders.

The default usage is:

$ plexify -s /media/Temp -d /media/PlexMediaFolder

or more simple

$ plexify /media/Temp /media/PlexMediaFolder

If you specify a destination with the -d flag, it will create two folders inside the destination folder named "Movies" and "TV_Shows".

You can also specify movies and series folders like that:

$ plexify -s /media/Temp --movies-destination /media/PlexMediaFolder/Movies --series-destination /media/PlexMediaFolder/Series

If you aren't really sure about the tool, you can either use plexify in test mode like that:

$ plexify -s /media/Temp -d /media/PlexMediaFolder --test

It will just print found medias and not move files.
