5.5.2 Resources
So, how do you put all of this together?
  1. Remember all of those resources we created in earlier exercises? They are saved off in the user's local resource directory: /home/idv/.metapps/DefaultIdv.
  2. The files include:
  3. The IDV looks in the user's resource directory, the site path and the system path for these resources.
  4. View the available resources
  5. To share these resources across a site one just needs to copy these files to an accessible web site or directory. Then point the IDV to that path with the -sitepath command line argument. Try running the IDV with:
    idv -userpath ~/othermetapps -noplugins -listresources -sitepath http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/workshop 
    
  6. Note: when running with the -sitepath argument that value is persistent. Bring up the Preferences and remove the sitepath entry.
  7. Exit the IDV.
  8. Ahh, you might say: "what about these plugins I keep hearing about?"
