I wrote a few packages with various functions. Now I would like to put these packages to a location that I can "Get" them via <<name ( I prefer a directory "packages" in my Mathematica system).

I read the article Where will I put packages but this did not work. Can anyone give me a hint where to put the packages *.wl files) so that I can get them simply via e.g. <<name after startup of Mathematica?

    $\begingroup$ Try placing them here: FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Applications"}]. Should work. $\endgroup$ Apr 21, 2017 at 20:34
  • $\begingroup$ @LeonidShifrin: Thanks! Seems to work. I´ve putted them in the ´$UserBaseDirectory´ ... missed the "Applications". $\endgroup$
