Cross-platform tool for adding locations to the user PATH, no sudo/runas required!
Ever wanted to release a cool new app but found it difficult to add its location to PATH for users? Me too! This tool does that for you on all major operating systems and does not require elevated privileges!
Fear not, this only modifies the user PATH; the system PATH is never touched nor even looked at!
adduserpath is distributed on PyPI as a universal wheel and is available on Linux/macOS and Windows and supports Python 2.6-2.7/3.3+ and PyPy.
$ pip install adduserpath
