My addon is constituted by two files scripts. when I push the 'Remove' button , one file stay on the addons folder.

enter image description here

How can I tell blender remove the two python files from the addons directory?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you mean... You want blender to delete the python files from the addons directory? Isn't this already what happens? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because is appears to be a misunderstanding of Python modules. If your addon is properly set-up as directory with your script files incl. a __init__.py, a click on Remove should delete the entire folder. $\endgroup$

In my __init__.py file

I put this:

if "bpy" in locals():
    import imp

and everything works fine :)
