Junk File Organizer in Python



Basically, as a lazy programmer my desktop is full of files (Junk Files). Due to the large number of files, it is a daunting task to sit and organize each file. To make that task easy the below Python script comes handy and all the files are organized in a well-manner within seconds. Following are the steps to be followed:
  1. Create Dictionaries: The code below will create the defined Directories.
  2. Mapping: Now we will map the file formats with directory.
  3. Organizing: Following is the code for Python Lazy Junk Files Organizer. It will organize everything in appropriate folder in a single go and remove empty directories.

import os
from pathlib import Path

DIRECTORIES = {
"HTML": [".html5", ".html", ".htm", ".xhtml"],
"IMAGES": [".jpeg", ".jpg", ".tiff", ".gif", ".bmp", ".png", ".bpg", "svg", ".heif", ".psd"],
"VIDEOS": [".avi", ".flv", ".wmv", ".mov", ".mp4", ".webm", ".vob", ".mng", ".qt", ".mpg", ".mpeg", ".3gp"],
"DOCUMENTS": [".oxps", ".epub", ".pages", ".docx", ".doc", ".fdf", ".ods",
".odt", ".pwi", ".xsn", ".xps", ".dotx", ".docm", ".dox",
".rvg", ".rtf", ".rtfd", ".wpd", ".xls", ".xlsx", ".ppt",
"pptx"],
"ARCHIVES": [".a", ".ar", ".cpio", ".iso", ".tar", ".gz", ".rz", ".7z",
".dmg", ".rar", ".xar", ".zip"],
"AUDIO": [".aac", ".aa", ".aac", ".dvf", ".m4a", ".m4b", ".m4p", ".mp3",
".msv", "ogg", "oga", ".raw", ".vox", ".wav", ".wma"],
"PLAINTEXT": [".txt", ".in", ".out"],
"PDF": [".pdf"],
"PYTHON": [".py"],
"XML": [".xml"],
"EXE": [".exe"],
"SHELL": [".sh"]

}
FILE_FORMATS = {file_format: directory
for directory, file_formats in DIRECTORIES.items()
for file_format in file_formats}
def organize_junk():
for entry in os.scandir():
if entry.is_dir():
continue
file_path = Path(entry)
file_format = file_path.suffix.lower()
if file_format in FILE_FORMATS:
directory_path=Path(FILE_FORMATS[file_format])
directory_path.mkdir(exist_ok=True)
file_path.rename(directory_path.joinpath(file_path))
for dir in os.scandir():
try:
os.rmdir(dir)
except:
pass
