I’ve written a tool for unrar extraction in python. Basically you can feed it with *.rar and it will do the rest for you. Additionally it can perform cleanup after a successful extraction including a working partYX.rar detection and it’s got passwordfile support. For usage use -h

For install make it executable and put it into /usr/bin or wherever you like.

Depends on:

  • Unrar (non-free-version) 3.80
  • Python
