BalooShow: Improve and Polish

completed by: Benjamin Kaiser

mentors: Vishesh Handa

Balooshow is a simple tool for dumping file metadata. It can be improved to a large extent.

  1. Add support for multiple files. 
  2. Display the url of the file. 
  3. Add different colours to the output in order to improve readability. Have a look at BalooSearch and how it adds colours.

Additionally, maybe think of how this tool could be improved more and provide suggestions?
