I know they go under
~/.arara under unix platforms, but I tried having them under
%USERPROFILE%\.arara, and they are not getting picked up.
See the preface of section 6 (“Configuration file”) and subsection 6.1 (“Search paths”) in the GREAT arara manual (I speak of version 3.0 here). You have to create a configuration file with the name “araraconfig.yaml” directly in
%UserProfile%, and in this file you can add a path for your local rules.
- until Windows XP by default
C:\<Documents and Settings>\<username>, where
<Documents and Settings>is language dependent.
- since Windows Vista by default
C:\Users\<username>. You see, the first part
Usersis valid for all languages, but Microsoft even so thought, it would be a good idea to provide in system’s own Windows Explorer only a translated folder name (e.g. here in German I can only see
Benutzer). But on command line and in batches and cases like here for
ararayou need the correct folder name
Users– but the best approach would consist in only using the mentioned system variable with added subfolders.
