Now that I regularly use source control for my projects, it’s convenient. I love being able to back stuff up. But I’ve had this question for a while:
Most of my files, I can provide a symbolic link and update either my non-Github or Github copy when editing at will. The original copy is in the Github directory, and the linked copy is in c:\games\inform\etc.
But if I use the Inform IDE, and I save the link version of the story.ni file and build, it becomes an unlinked file.
This makes it a small hassle to make further changes and copy story.ni back over. That’s okay, as I can always just do things manually, and I should always check source before committing it anyway…and I can always use a pre-commit hook to check the games\inform vs github versions as well!
But I’m wondering if there is a workaround, and if not, what is the explanation?
