Using someone else's project with Pkg3


In Julia 0.7, if I clone the repository of an unregistered package to ~/.julia/dev is still necessary to manually add this directory to LOAD_PATH in order to use someone else’s project as outlined here?


You can just pkg> dev ~/.julia/dev/Package to make it available to your current project.


Thank you, this solved my issue. This doesn’t seem to be documented, is it? I did try dev AstroBase (didn’t work), couldn’t figure out I needed to use the path.


It does say that you can dev a path. But what needs to be more clear is that .julia/dev is not special in any way (like julia/v0.6 was). It’s just a default place to put registered packages that are devved by name.
