This function will remove the entity at the remote path specified recursively (like rm -r on POSIX systems), and will error if the remote path specified is invalid or if the entity doesn't exist. Example: :: rm("sample.txt") # sample.txt exists Removes the existing file sample.txt from Latch. rm("latch:///dir1/dir2") # dir1/dir2/ exists and is nonempty Removes the directory dir1/dir2 along with all of its contents. rm("/dir1/dir3/dir2/doesnt_exist.txt") # doesnt_exist.txt doesn't exist Will throw an error, as this operation tries to remove a file that doesn't exist.
