Is there a way on the Mac (Chrome extension, Mac app, script, or otherwise) to automatically file Chrome downloads into folders by source / website?

You can use rules this with Hazel:

Or run shell commands like this manually or with launchd:

for f in ~/Downloads/*; do mdls -raw -n kMDItemWhereFroms "$f" | grep -q && mv "$f" ~/Movies; done

This seems to be working. I put the shell command into an automator folder action. Thank you for the help! – Nathan Arthur Aug 14 '13 at 17:03
