    Glob support

    lnk don't support globbing by itself, for platform independent glob support use globstar:

    $ npm install globstar --global
     
    $ globstar -- lnk "assets/*" dist

    Please note that Windows needs double quotes, especially if you want to use it in your package.json:

      "scripts"{
        "link-assets": "globstar --node -- lnk \"assets/*\" dist",
      },
