Status: npm version npm downloads Build Status Code Coverage

This micro-lib allows you to alter the $PATH in a cross-platform way.

Main Usage

var path = require('path')
var managePath = require('manage-path')
var alterPath = managePath(process.env)
alterPath.shift(path.join(process.cwd(), 'node_modules', '.bin') // add one path to the beginning 
// process.env.PATH now starts with the `.bin` in your `node_modules` directory :-) 
// unless you happen to be running on windows, in which case it *might* be process.env.Path :-) 
// but you don't have to think about that... 
 
alterPath.push('~/custombin', '/usr/other/bin') // add multiple paths to the end 
alterPath.push(['~/foo/bar', '/bar/foo/bin']) // array-style multi-path add for ultimate flexibility :-) 
 
// need to get the path value cross-platform? 
alterPath.get() // <-- returns value of PATH or Path... depending :-) 
 
// want to restore the path to what it was before you mucked with it? 
// just call the function you get back: 
alterPath.restore()
