Since XD requires you plugin code to live under the develop folder, I tried linking the plugin’s root folder to a more common work related folder. However, XD is smart enough to realize its really an alias, so it refuses to load.
I did find a little trick that will work. Basically create the root folder under develop like your supposed to, and then creating a bunch of symlinks to the contents of the project’s root folder that live elsewhere. This poses an issue when something gets added to the root folder later, and therefore doesn’t have a symlink over in the develop folder.
Long story short, is there anyway to create a symlink in the develop folder to a project’s path somewhere else?
