A Better unzip for Hazel Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:13 am • by ash0080
For me, the default unarchive function of Hazel is almost useless, cuz in most situation, the archived files downloaded from internet are split archive files, but Hazel cannot recognized them, or trigger unarchive process multiple times just boring.

That's why I make this.

1. Better support for split zipped files
2. If files are incomplete, it will not be run
3. Notification if fail
4. Ready for nested zipped files

While I'm aware of split RAR files, this is the first I'm hearing about split zip files. I'll look into support in a future release though I have yet to encounter them in the wild.

This is very clever.
I wonder: do you think it would be possible to supply the script with a text file that contained a list of passwords that could be used when unarchiving files? Currently, I often receive archives from clients, each of which archive their files with unique passwords. I would love Hazel to unarchive them automatically, but it naturally fails when it encounters a password.

thoughts?
