A simple CLI tool to transfer metadata between files.

Written in rust.


Install using cargo

cargo install metadata-transferer

Then provide an input and an output

metadata-transferer [OPTIONS] <INPUT> <OUTPUT>

You can get more help by typing the help command

metadata-transferer --help


Paths can be either files or directories. For each file in the input directory it searches for a file with the same filename (ingoring extensions) in the output directory. Keep in mind that if you pass single files they get interpreted as "directories" with one file, so the names still have to match.
