Rclone "date variable" in folder name (in one row)?

I am trying to move videos to Google Drive.

rclone v1.47.0

  • os/arch: linux/arm
  • go version: go1.12.4

Desired result this month :
rclone --checksum -vv move local:‘y/’ remote:‘main/2019/2019-05/video’

failed tests :
rclone --checksum -vv move local:‘y/’ remote:‘main/‘date “+%Y”’/‘date “+%Y-%M”’/video’

Any idea ?
Thanks in advance :wink:

note: I would love a simple thing like :
rclone --checksum -vv move local:‘y/’ remote:‘main/%Y%/%Y%-%M%/video’

I did this:

[felix@gemini ~]$ date +%Y/%Y-%M
[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone copy /etc/hosts GD:`date +%Y/%Y-%M`/ -vv

Thanks Animosity022. :wink:
I get like you : “2019/2019-XX
Alas “XX” is not equal to “05” (which should be as we are currently in “May” of this year) !

Thanks in advance :wink:

Sorry M is minute and you wanted month. You can always ‘man date’ for the options for the command as well.

date +%Y/%Y-%m

Wow Many thanks Animosity022. I much appreciated your help. :wink:
It is working like a charm. :wink:
Thank also for the ‘man date’ which I wasn’t aware of. :wink:

My example becomes :
rclone move local:'y/' remote:main/date +%Y/%Y-%mblabla/video -vv
