Depending on your system (Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows), you have to use
different directories for storing user data. appdirs will help you choose an
* user data directory (user_data_dir function)
* user config directory (user_config_dir function)
* user cache directory (user_cache_dir function)
* site data directory (site_data_dir function)
* site config directory (site_config_dir function)
* user log directory (user_log_dir function)
On Linux systems, these function return directories based on the XDG Base
Directory Specification.
This is the Python 2 version of the package.
