License GPL 3 MELPA Stable MELPA

Provide OS X system trash support for GNU Emacs 24. In other words, makes delete-by-moving-to-trash do what you expect it to do.


Install this package from MELPA or MELPA Stable, and add the following to your init file:

(when (eq system-type 'darwin)
(setq delete-by-moving-to-trash t)

Optionally, install trash with brew install trash. Otherwise this package falls back to a little AppleScript helper, which works just as well, but is a little slower.
