Nautilus Hide is a simple Python extension for the Nautilus file manager
that adds options to the right-click menu to hide or unhide files.
The extension hides the files without renaming them (i.e. without prefixing
a dot ('.') or suffixing a tilde ('~')). It does that by adding their
names to the folder's '.hidden' file, which Nautilus reads to hide the
listed files the next time you open or refresh the folder.
