krename in kdereview


thanks to the KDE Sysadmins krename was moved to kdereview today.

It's a batch renamer started outside of KDE and its infrastructure but
it was kind of abandoned and I got the ok the from the original author
to move it to

The code can be found at kde:krename.

The intended target should be

Considering KDELibs4 reached the end of its life-cycle, I'd like to
release a beta version soon after krename passes review.

Questions? Comments?

Best regards,

Maybe you want to use poppler instead of podofo for the pdf plugin? Since
Okular uses poppler most distros have it available, podofo seems to be a bit
more niche in that regard.

When in the Filename tab, wouldn't it make more sense for Simple Filename tab
to be first and not second?

Is it only me that Alt+4 doesn't select the 4th tab?

The list on the plugins tab seems to be working only on clicks instead of on
change, i.e. if i click on the first plugin and then use they keyboard arrows
to change to another plugin the right hand side contents don't change.

your point might have merit nevertheless and I guess it's not that hard
to get the same things from poppler.

Hmm, actually I only ever used the advanced tab. Which makes me think
the UI should be improved and there shouldn't be two tabs. Maybe
something like the advanced tab with helpful hints/shortcuts
buttons/highlighting for new users.

It seems to be only you ;-) or at least it works here.

Fixed with 23d4701

Thanks for your review.

To be honest i didn't really look at the tab contents, just felt a bit weird
UI wise.

Ok :)
