I'm thinking of organizing my code as follows:

  • Project A (private) has all the libraries and common python modules.
  • Projects B, C, D (public) have mostly notebooks that make use of python modules in (A)

I added the absolute path to project A modules in a local.pth file of project B:


Also did chmod 755 (read and execute by everyone) on all resources in project A. Testing with python in a console (project B) shows that the path to project A is not added to sys.path. The same works fine when I'm in project A. Any idea how to proceed?

It works for me.

Adding a directory to ~/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/local.pth and starting up Sage shows that the directory in local.pth is indeed added to sys.path. Are you sure your paths are correct?

I confirm that the method above does work when the path listed in local.pth is in the same project as the one where python is executed.

What does not work for me is to add a path to a project "B" folder when I'm running python from project "A". I checked and double-checked the spelling in local.pth.
