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 ``IFileOperation`` call if on Vista or newer and pywin32 is installed or falls back
to ``SHFileOperation`` 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

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

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

Status: Additional Help Welcome

Additional help is welcome for supporting this package. Specifically help with the OSX and Linux
issues and fixes would be most appreciated.


You can download it with pip::

python -m pip install -U send2trash

or you can download the source from and install it with::

>>> python install


>>> from send2trash import send2trash
>>> send2trash('some_file')
>>> send2trash(['some_file1', 'some_file2'])

On Freedesktop platforms (Linux, BSD, etc.), you may not be able to efficiently
trash some files. In these cases, an exception ``send2trash.TrashPermissionError``
is raised, so that the application can handle this case. This inherits from
``PermissionError`` (``OSError`` on Python 2). Specifically, this affects
files on a different device to the user's home directory, where the root of the
device does not have a ``.Trash`` directory, and we don't have permission to
create a ``.Trash-$UID`` directory.

For any other problem, ``OSError`` is raised.
