Overview

Send2Trash -- Send files to trash on all platforms

This is a Python 3 package. The Python 2 package is at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Send2Trash .

Send2Trash is a small package that sends files to the Trash (or Recycle Bin) natively and on all platforms. On OS X, it uses native FSMoveObjectToTrashSync Cocoa calls, on Windows, it uses native (and ugly) SHFileOperation win32 calls. On other platforms, it follows the trash specifications from freedesktop.org.

ctypes is used to access native libraries, so no compilation is necessary.

Installation

Download the source from http://hg.hardcoded.net/send2trash and install it with:

>>> python setup.py install

Usage

>>> from send2trash import send2trash
>>> send2trash('some_file')

When there's a problem OSError is raised.
