PATH question

Recommended Posts

I have an executable located at ~/Documents/anki/runanki


echo $PATH = /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/opt/X11/bin


I created an alias in .bash_profile, but I know from searching that Alfred doesn't load the local environment.


I would like to call runanki from a run script, but can't figure it out. I don't really care about using the alias in Alfred.



Have tried the following, all of which work in the terminal. What is my hangup?

cd ~/Documents/anki
shopt -s expand_aliases

if [ -f "${HOME}/.bash_profile" ] ; then
source "${HOME}/.bash_profile"

That won't work because /Users/drlulz/Documents/anki isn't part of your $PATH
Either use the full path to runanki or cd to ~/Documents/anki first and do env -i ./runanki.
You are actually using the full path to the runanki executable in your workflow script, aren't you?
