Create symlinks between files/directories
This task can be used to create symlinks between files/directories in your project. It is a multitask and so can be used to create multiple links.
Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with:
npm install grunt-symbolic-link
Then add this line to your project's
grunt.js file add a section named
symlink. This section specifies the target and link path, and optionally any options you want to use. Once the section has been added you can run the task with
Path to the file/directory you want to link to. Paths will be relative to the grunt.js file unless an absolute path is used.
Path to the new file/directory link location. Paths will be relative to the grunt.js file unless an absolute path is used.
A hash of options to configure the symlink and tasks behaviour
Choose whether or not to overwrite existing symlink/files, default is false.
Force can be used to create the directory structure for the link path if it has not previously been created, default is false
To specifically set the type of symlink to be created, default type will be inferred from the target type. Values can be 'dir', 'file', or 'junction'. see node.js - fs for more info
