# PD autostart patch

When switching to the PD module, you get to choose the autostart patch from a list. I put a couple of additional patches in the same directory /usr/local/puredata-patches/ and hoped to see them on the list, but apparently it’s not that simple…
How do I add pd patches to the autostart list?

Hey, you should name the entry point to your patch as ‘main.pd’, or provide ‘blokas.yml’ file in the folder with all the metadata.

Check the existing patches for examples.

Thanks, I think the “main.pd” trick works for me for the time being, but I’ll read up on the metadata stuff
