Recycle Bee app after the trial has ended

I love the Bee issue tracker app, and would have gladly paid for it, but, sadly, there's no way to do that since the author abandoned it an does not reply to direct messages. Since there is no good alternative for MacOS I had to find a workaround.

  1. Use Sloth or other MacOS file tool to find all open files when Bee is running
  2. Delete all cache and related files
  3. Log back in to Jira

This PowerShell script should care of it automatically:

[string]$username = [Environment]::UserName; # Get the current logged-in user
# * used to be j6mpsxld0vv5sfcwr6y5m9ym0000gn - probably different on different installs
Get-ChildItem /private/var/folders/kr/*/C/io.neat.Bee/ -Recurse | Remove-Item
Get-ChildItem /Users/$username/Library/Containers/io.neat.Bee-Mutator/ -Recurse | Remove-Item
Get-ChildItem /Users/$username/Library/Containers/io.neat.Bee-Updater/ -Recurse | Remove-Item
Get-ChildItem /Users/$username/Library/Containers/io.neat.Bee/ -Recurse | Remove-Item

It's a shame that this great app is no longer supported and maintained, because over time Atlassian API will gradually drigt away and the functionality will degrade, leaving MacOS users without native Jira client.
