"GNU/Linux PsychOS Tools: QuickEdit" by TheOuterLinux


QuickEdit is a yad-based tool included with PsychOS 3.4.5 and higher for quickly editing many file types in simple ways without having to open a large program. However, though it may work just fine on other #GNU/#Linux distributions if the requirements are met, it is designed for #PsychOS . The version of QuickEdit shown in this video is a slightly more advanced version for the up-coming PsychOS 3.4.6.

QuickEdit is a right-click menu item via a #Thunar Custom Action (and can be ran from the command-line; linear Q&A editing) for editing one file at a time. It does simple things such as converting 3D, audio, documents, images, and video formats. Most format types support resizing, modified date changing, and adding metadata if supported by ExifTool. It also has small bonus features in the conversion drop-down menu for certain file types such as converting a recorded Morse code WAV file to a plain-text file (though buggy), converting an image to ASCII art with resizing, converting 25+ year-old archaic file types, converting Dia projects, rending Blender project files, and hopefully much more features to come as the PsychOS project continues to grow.

QuickEdit currently (2019-11-16) supports the following formats:

3ds, 3g2, 3gp, 3gpp, 669, aac, abw, ai, aai, aiff, amv, art, arw, ascii, au, avi, avs, azw3, bik, blend, blend1, bmp, bmp2, bmp3, cdr, cin, cr2, csv, ctm, dae, dcx, dds, dia, dib, divx, djvu, dng, doc, docm, docx, dot, dpx, epdf, eps, epub, exr, f4v, fb2, fits, flac, fli, flv, gif, gnumeric, gts, h264, hdr, hrz, html, ico, iff, img, iimg, it, jng, jp2, jpeg, jpg, key, lbm, log, lrf, m2ts, m2v, m4a, m4v, mac, macp, mid, midi, miff, mkv, mng, mobi, mod, mov, mp3, mp4, mpeg, mpg, mpnt, mts, mtv, mxf, nef, neo, numbers, obj, odg, odp, ods, odt, off, oga, ogg, ogv, opus, p7, pages, pai, palm, pcd, pcds, pbm, pct, pcx, pdb, pdf, pfm, pgm, pi1, pic, picon, pict, ply, png, png8, pnm, por, ppm, pps, ppsx, ppt, pptm, pptx, prc, ps, psd, pub, rm, rtf, s3m, sav, sps, stl, svg, swf, sxw, sys, tga, thm, tif, tiff, ts, txt, vob, wav, wbmp, webm, webp, wma, wmf, wmv, wpd, wps, wrl, xls, xlsx, wk3, wks, wmv, x3d, xm, xpm, xyz

However, please try to use some common-sense when converting files as though QuickEdit may help you save time, it is not perfect.

The video doesn't show it, but QuickEdit can also be ran from the #commandline in both a GUI environment and a console. When doing so, it is basically a linear-style Q&A for editing. When running 'quickedit' without a file path, it opens a fuzzy finder (fzy; https://github.com/jhawthorn/fzy) for quickly finding files.
