I wonder, are there any tools to manage stuff like a Downloads folder?
I often just forget to clean it up and having some kind of either auto-removal or notification on stale files would be rad.
guess I'll work on a tool for that, because I have multiple cases I want to handle:
* pattern matching for names/extensions (e.g. setup executables that we can assume have been run after lying around for days)
* stale file deletion after x time
* moving files around (e.g. image-ext into Pictures/)
@naruciakk well, but if you do something on "last modified date" there shouldn't be much trouble.
I agree, but there's way to make it less "destructive".
@pixel I suggest writing a bash script that checks your downloads folder based on using ls --time=atime.
@lastfuture any, but at the moment Windows
@pixel Clean My Mac is a tool that does specifically that among other things on macOS
I think I once built something like this with Automator and/or Applescript.
