Cache Behavior

Cache Directory

The cache directory is where chim stores all the binaries it fetches. On Linux, it is by default $HOME/.cache/chim on macOS it will be $HOME/Library/Caches/chim. It respects $XDG_CACHE_HOME.

It can also be more directly configured by setting the $CHIM_CACHE_DIR environment variable.

See how it works for more on how this directory is populated.
