Create a symbolic link
To create the symbolic link to the
micropython-stubs/stubs folder the instructions differ slightly for each OS/
The below examples assume that the micropython-stubs repo is cloned ‘next-to’ your project folder.
please adjust as needed.
MS[Micropython-Stubs] --- S[Stubs]
P1[Project-1] --- AS1[/All-Stubs/]
P1 --- S1[Src]
P1 --- T1[Tests]
P2[Project-2] --> AS2[/All-Stubs/]
P2 --- S2[Src]
P2 --- T2[Tests]
Windows 10 / 11
Windows 10 and later requires Developer Mode to create symlinks as a regular user, or you can run the below commands from an elevated PowerShell prompt ( Run as Admin) .
Settings > Developer Settings > Developer Mode : On
Please see Activate Developer Mode for instruction on how to activate this. Or read the blogpost on the rationale and see some examples.
You can create a symlink using PowerShell or with the mklink cmdline tool.
Both methods achieve exactly the same result.
New-Item -ItemType SymbolicLink -Path "all-stubs" -Target (Resolve-Path -Path ../micropython-stubs/stubs)
The target must be an absolute path.
Resolve-Path is used to resolve the relative path to an absolute path.
or use mklink in an (elevated) command prompt.
mklink /d all-stubs c:\develop\micropython-stubs\stubs
mklink target (last path) must be an absolute path
# target must be an absolute path
ln -s /path/to/micropython-stubs/stubs all-stubs
Teh target must be an absolute path
