Updating path in Mac OSX

I was playing around with MongoDB and node ..needed to add PATH to get mongo commands from anywhere in the shell.

Super easy once you know it.

Open shell and type:

open .profile ( this will open the shell with textmate )

 

and then update the path :

pre-existing:

export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH

after modification:

export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH export PATH=/Developer/mongodb-osx-x86_64-2.4.6/bin:$PATH

Restart shell and it should work.
