How to change huggingface transformers default cache directory

You can specify the cache directory everytime you load a model with .from_pretrained by the setting the parameter cache_dir. You can define a default location by exporting an environment variable TRANSFORMERS_CACHE everytime before you use (i.e. before importing it!) the library).
