Trash

When it's too hard to say goodbye… an alternative to `rm`.

A simple command line utility to move files/folders to a “trash” folder before deleting them.

Usage

From the command line:

trash [file/directory name(s)]
# example:
trash potentially-important-file.txt
trash this-folder that-folder some-random-file.txt

Handles multiple files with the same name

trash ~/Documents/Groceries/shopping-list.txt
trash ~/Documents/Christmas/shopping-list.txt
trash ~/Documents/AutoParts/shopping-list.txt

The trash will contain:

  • shopping-list.txt # originally ~/Documents/Groceries/shopping-list.txt

  • shopping-list01.txt # originally ~/Documents/Christmas/shopping-list.txt

  • shopping-list02.txt # originally ~/Documents/AutoParts/shopping-list.txt

You will find the files that you've trashed in ~/.Trash

Installation

gem install trash

Contributors

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
