SymLink – Best & Alternative solution to Shortcuts
(Windows 10,8,7, Linux, Ubuntu…)
Probably, many of developers (either C#, PHP or anything…) have used same files (their “library files”) to build different projects. However, in most cases, do you copy-paste your library file in multiple projects? If so, when you want to update something in your library, then you have to update all copies of your library-file across all project ?!
The best way is to create a mirror of file,called symlink. It’s like a shortcut, butsymlink is treated as the real file (as opposed to regular SHORTCUT of file). So, when you update symlink-file, it updates all it’s symlinked mirror-files!
How to create symlinks
Instead of manually executing terminal commands, you can use this open-source script:
1) Drag & drop file/folder (you can drag multiple items) onto that file and input the TARGET location.
2) That’s all, symlink is created ( if you see an error, like “insufficient privillege”, at first apply this fix)
Note: you should symlink each file using that command ! COPY & PASTE the symlinked file doesn’t create symlinks!
