==================================================
Send2Trash -- Send files to trash on all platforms
==================================================

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, if `PyGObject`_ and
`GIO`_ are available, it will use this. Otherwise, it will fallback to its own implementation
of the `trash specifications from freedesktop.org`_.

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

Send2Trash supports Python 2.7 and up (Python 3 is supported).

Installation
------------

You can download it with pip::

pip install Send2Trash

or you can download the source from http://github.com/hsoft/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.
