Search - "symlinks"
Today was hell on earth as for user support. Phone going non stop, tickets coming in faster than we were able to process.
At the end of the day I had to make a symlink for a customer which is fine. But, the day was so busy that I just couldn't focus anymore.
I've made 1K+ symlinks in my life probably but I couldn't remember if the source or destination comes first with a symlink.... The day has been hell and I just couldn't bring up a single second of focus anymore..
Fuck it, I'll do it tomorrow. I know I can do this but I don't trust myself with this right now in case of a huge webshop (swap the source/destination: webshop gone).
I think I'll thank myself for this tomorrow.15
I hate it that I'm still forced to use Ubuntu 16.04 and can't upgrade to bionic beaver.tried it on vm (for testing)loved new features and default gnome interface but even after switching to xorg most of my tool were still not running properly or crashing, most important factor is that there is still no official cuda support and installing gcc g++ 6 and symlinks are nerve racking. On top of that upgrading to 18.04 LTS on my main machine will leave me with broken packages and dependencies.
p.s. for people who are going to reply saying that these issue can be solved. Please try updating your work machine and spend hours fix these issues1
How to tell if someone had never developed before and never looked at Linux before: I'm not familiar with symlinks.1
Goddamn, Windows' idea of symlinks is completely broken. It's like they faked it at the UI level, but if your build process wants to copy the file? Too bad, it's not real so you can't copy it.1
Has anyone ever tried making symlinks on windows?
OH MY GOD. How can someone fuckup something so simple. It really pisses me off.
I mean. I am obliged to `git submodule add` because i can't `ln -s`7
Writing a library is so much nicer than writing an app. You can concentrate on the core thing you want to achieve and need to handle just a few files.
And you can still test it live even if it's a node module: just symlink it into the node_modules folder of your app.4
Boss uses symlinks for packages in go. He checked in changes for several services and then left for vacations.
