Intricate (Media) Matching Logic

This is a media file handling library which is supposed to "guess" the intended type of media file based on specific naming patterns. Its main purpose is to serve as runtime for renaming media files according to specified patterns. The gem includes an executable iml through which rename operations are possible.


This gem requires ruby >= 2.4

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'iml'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install iml
