3rd party directory
« on: September 26, 2021, 10:40:17 pm »
What's the generally agreed upon directory to install 3rd party pacakages for Lazarus.  I did look at the wiki and didn't see an answer WRT Mac OS


Thanks

I'd say: Any directory is fine to which you are allowed to write.
Mainly Lazarus trunk / fpc 3.2.0 / all 32-bit on Win-10, but many more...

I'll just use the home directory.  Thanks
