Re: [PATCH] Fixup documentation path for macOS scripting plugins


Hi Adam,
Please note that current paths are actually correct for previous versions
of MacOS. I'm not sure exactly when the change happened but the paths you
are suggesting are valid for latest versions of MacOS and kicad.
Maybe it's worth to add a note stating that these paths are correct for
latest versions of the software.
Also there is a simple way to get all valid paths from kicad itself, I have
it described in the wiki for my plugin here

> Above list may be out of date or inaccurate for your OS
version/distribution. You can get full list of directories that pcbnew is
scanning for plugins by running this in scripting console:

import pcbnewprint pcbnew.PLUGIN_DIRECTORIES_SEARCH

Having that in the docs would be useful too.
