Organizing your dropbox Camera Upload folder with Go

A few years ago I wrote a small Python script to organize the photos uploaded from your phone to Dropbox. Lately, I have been rewriting some of my python scripts to golang for practice and also performance.

All photos are uploaded to Dropbox with a name pattern like 2018-08-01 05.56.40.jpg. What all it does is to parse the date and move it to the right place, for example, 2018-08-01 will move it to a folder called 08-August inside 2018.
