Symlinks and Syncing

If your project folder contains a symbolic link to another local file, then the sync operation will treat it as follows:

  • Domino will attempt to upload a regular file, rather than a symlink. This file will have the same name as the symlink, but will contain the contents of the linked file.
  • Locally, the symlink will be preserved (it will not be overwritten by a real file on subsequent syncs).
  • The file being linked must exist outside of your project folder, and the linked path must be relative to the link location.
  • An external file can only be linked to one location within the project. If the project contains multiple links pointing to the same file, an error will occur.
