pip install beancount-syspath


Prepend list of paths

plugin "beancount_syspath.plugin" "{
    'append': ['some/dir', 'other/dir'],
    'prepend': ['some/dir', 'other/dir'],

Note: Place the directive before other plugin loading ones, so they can make use of the updated sys.path.


The config value is a python dict literal, contains the following keys

Key Type Optional Default Meaning
append List[str] yes [] Append the list of path to sys.path
prepend List[str] yes [] Prepend the list of path to sys.path
normalize_to_root bool yes True If the path is relative, it is considered to be relative to the root beancount file, and normalized to absolute path before adding to sys.path.
