Symbolic links on OS X

Symbolic links on OS X

Postby larry on Wed Aug 31, 2011 1:53 pm

We have a directory structure containing five Ruby on Rails applications and certain directories are shared among all the applications. For example, application1/app/models is a symbolic link to shared/app/models.

Sublime Text 2 (build 2111) correctly expands the files in the symlinked directory when clicking the arrow (in the Folders sidebar) for application1/app/models, but it does not show anything for other applications, not even shared/app/models, which is the real directory containing the files.

Is this the expected behavior?

Do you have one of your links with relative path and the other with absolute? I am seeing this issue with relative paths only:

I'm experiencing the same problem with relative symlinks. The symlink target folder does not expand in the sidebar but the symlink itself does expand.

All of our symlinks are using relative paths.
