FileFilter Plugin

The filefilter plugin allows you to skip files during import using regular expressions.

To use the filefilter plugin, enable it in your configuration (see Using Plugins).


To configure the plugin, make a filefilter: section in your configuration file. The available options are:

  • path: A regular expression to filter files based on their path and name. Default: .* (import everything)
  • album_path and singleton_path: You may specify different regular expressions used for imports of albums and singletons. This way, you can automatically skip singletons when importing albums if the names (and paths) of the files are distinguishable via a regex. The regexes defined here take precedence over the global path option.

Here’s an example:

    path: .*\d\d[^/]+$
          # will only import files which names start with two digits
    album_path: .*\d\d[^/]+$
    singleton_path: .*/(?!\d\d)[^/]+$
