# No (batch of course) Block Rename Tool?

Is there any way to do a batch block rename without resorting to python or grasshopper??

Basically I want to be able to do basic regex substitution.

Something like:
search “foo_someType_” and replace with “bar_someType_”
…like so: regex101: build, test, and debug regex

or search “(someType_|otherType_)” and replace with “dummy_$1”
like so: regex101: build, test, and debug regex

Any “simple” tool for this “simple” task available?

Hello- none that I know of.

In case you need to resort to Grasshopper


RENAME BLOCKS.gh (2.2 KB)

an example using elefront to collect all block names in file
