XDG::BaseDirectory zef:jonathanstowe last updated on 2023-01-09
# XDG::BaseDirectory

Raku access to path information provided by the xdg base directory specfication

![Build Status](

## Synopsis


    use XDG::BaseDirectory;

    my $bd =

    for $bd.load-config-paths('', 'MyProg', 'Options') -> $d {
        say $d;

    # Directories can be made available as terms as well
    use XDG::BaseDirectory :terms;

    say config-home;


## Description

This is loosely based on the interface of python module pyxdg. But
due to the differences between Python and Raku it may do some things

It provides a set of facilities for discovering the location of the
configuration and data of applications.

I split this out from the XDG module as it has more general usefulness
and no external dependencies.

## Installation

Assuming you have a working Rakudo installation with *zef* installed you can install from a copy of the source directory:

     zef install .

or remotely:

     zef install XDG::BaseDirectory 

## Support

Suggestions/patches are welcomed via github at:

I'm not able to test on a wide variety of platforms so any help there would be appreciated.

## Licence

This module is Free Software please see the [LICENCE](LICENCE) file in the distribution for the exact terms.
