sys module in Python.
Before you call
python set the environmental variable.
Then you can call
In the beginning of your Python script add the following code.
import sys sys.path.append('/other/path')
Of course this isn’t the best way to add custom libraries to your Python scripts. Ideally, we would use
pip to manage our dependencies. Perhaps a future blog post will cover this!
