I use oh-my-zsh for my shell.
I keep stuff in ~/bin which is not in the default path for OSX
I thought — let’s be organized and keep my customization in an oh-my-zsh plugin.
Hours of frustration ensue.
In oh-my-zsh, they encourage you to put your custom stuff in
And then you add this line in ~/.zshrc:
plugins=(git common-aliases myplugin)
And it will get called. However, if you put this in your plugin:
It will not take effect.
The reason is that in ~/.zshrc, plugins are called before the path is set, effectively overriding anything the plugins may have done to the path
So just put that path setting in the ~/.zshrc directly
