Forcibly fix .pth files made by setuptools

Project description


Use this at your own risk! It’s a tool I wrote out of annoyance, not a recommended solution.

If you install things with setuptools, you might have found yourself cursing the damn pth files it creates that reorder sys.path.

damnpth finds the .pth files and removes the crazy path-reordering parts from them. If it can, it then patches the setuptools code to stop adding this path-reordering stuff.


pip install damnpth

In principle, this shouldn’t break your environment, but all the same, it’s probably not something to run on your production systems.
