Create hard links.
This plugin requires Grunt
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-hardlink --save-dev
Run this task with the
grunt hardlink command.
Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide. Pay special attention to the Building the files object dynamically section, which explains how to create many src-dest file mappings all at once.

To override the overwrite option via the CLI pass it as an option
grunt hardlink --overwrite
Make sure your command prompt has administrative privileges, otherwise the task will not work.
