Deleted files should go into Trash/Recycle Bin

Reported by delisa | October 19th, 2010 @ 11:24 PM

When I deleted a file (and it isn't versioned) its gone forever, even if I just click on it accidentally in the project tree.

    That could be done:
    For OS X there's the osx-trash gem, for Linux there's the freedesktop specification on where to move files. We could also query the WM for the trash location. It's been a while since I've done any WM programming, but I could look how to do that. For Windows, there are very short Perl or VBscript snippets we could use, executing VBscript from Ruby isn't too bad, I guess.

    Currently I'm getting this:

    Errno::EACCES: Permission denied - /Code/redcar/plugins/runnables/New File or /home/delisa/New File

        file:/home/delisa/.redcar/assets/jruby-complete-1.5.2.jar!/META-INF/jruby.home/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1396:in `fu_each_src_dest'

    And that's just from calling a mv directly, outside of the trash function.

    I think my problem with the current solution is that I can't delete/move a file across partitions.
    After playing with it for a bit i remembered having the same problem with some Java apps which needed to copy files into my source code partition. I'm not sure its fixable.

    From the Java 6 API (this may or may not be related?):

    File.renameTo "Many aspects of the behavior of this method are inherently platform-dependent: The rename operation might not be able to move a file from one filesystem to another, it might not be atomic, and it might not succeed if a file with the destination abstract pathname already exists. The return value should always be checked to make sure that the rename operation was successful."
