Is there a Julia Pkg for user data dir (appdirs)?

I’m curious if there are any Julia Pkgs that port python’s appdirs.

have a look at DrWatson.jl. Maybe that is it

DrWatson.jl appears to be a good solution for files associated with a single project (much like the {here} R package which is immensely useful in other contexts, so thank you!), but it doesn’t address the issue if I need files that can be accessed by several projects on the same computer, which is what appdirs does.


It looks like the scratchspaces all live within the ~/.julia/ directory. Is this compatible with Windows, and macOS and/or is it possible to have the directory conform to the standards of appdirs?

This is compatible with MacOS. Don’t know about Windows.
