Symbolic links and the Project Manager

05 November 2016 12:11 #13361
Hi,

I'm reorganizing my code repositories and for my particular situation it makes sense to have all of my code repositories in one (source) top-level directory and have symlinks in Blend4Web's "apps_dev" directory pointing to the relevant repos/directories in said top-level directory. Nonetheless, this doesn't seem to work in the Project Manager. That is, the sym-linked projects/directories do not display in the Project Manager. Is there any way around this?

Thanks in advance,

Brett

I've solved this by doing it the other way around: having the symlinks in my code directory point to the relevant project directories in the "apps_dev" directory.

Hi!
Such simlinks are too Unix-specific, so this feature can't be supported in cross-platform way. However we're thinking about project structure simplification, so maybe in one of our next releases we'll change project directory hierarchy and make it more simple and intuitive.
