    Remove files or directories.

  • trash-cli

    Command line interface to the freedesktop.org trashcan.

  • There's a Freedesktop specification for trashing files that you may consider adhering to: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/trash-spec/trashspec-...

    I get that writing a small utility is fun, but if it is just that (for fun), I suggest you put that into the readme. Otherwise, why should I choose your tool over something like https://github.com/andreafrancia/trash-cli, which seems to already be distributed for the major distros? Does your implementation scratch an itch that the myriad of other implementations don't? I'm just curious.

  • fuc

    Modern, performance focused unix commands

  • Is this a faster version of rm, optimized for speed, like FUC's rmz (https://github.com/SUPERCILEX/fuc)? I was hoping that it could do that, seeing this is written in rust (hopefully for performance)

  • libyazzy-preload

    LD_PRELOAD-able libraries

  • shameless plug: recyclix.so <https://github.com/bAndie91/libyazzy-preload/tree/master?tab...>

  • rip

    A safe and ergonomic alternative to rm (by nivekuil)

  • I still use Rip (Rm Improved) even though it hasn't updated in 4 years https://github.com/nivekuil/rip . But a tool this simple doesn't need to

  • trashy

    a cli system trash manager, alternative to rm and trash-cli

  • Other good implementations

    https://github.com/oberblastmeister/trashy

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
