i see, but I would try to avoid creating my own build. In windows I solved this by creating a bat script that opens bin/pd.exe with the right flags to point to the extras and load them. Then I used a bat to exe converter program to compile an exe out of the bat file, placed the exe at the root of pd and problem solved.

Since pd is open source you could always modify the defaults and make
your own build but it shouldn't have to come to that.
100% portable.. I assume you're only targeting one os? Which one?

For Mac I think you should be able to put your externals in extra
(inside Pd.app <http://Pd.app>) and.. Can you use declare with stdpath
to reference those?

A three step process would probably be more educational though.. Install
pd, copy all these externals to a given place, write this into pdrc..

    hi

    I would like to have a version of PD with a set of externals and to be
    able to pass that app to some students not needing to set the
    preferences to load the externals in every machine (neither copy the
    preferences file). I want it to be 100% portable.

    I was reading this old post about something similar
    https://lists.puredata.info/pipermail/pd-list/2008-10/065691.html

    Is it possible to achieve this nowadays?

    thanks
