I’m trying to setup symbolic links inside volume excluded folders by bookmarking them. Considering bookmarked folders are not linked to host, I thought it would be possible to create symlinks inside my container, but no. Is there any way to achieve this goal? I have a legacy repository with multiple projects (applications) inside the same repository and a Common folder that would be symlinked within all these apps folders. For development environment purposes I need to use a VOLUME to reload my browser with the updated code.
I’ve tried to point volume like
/dev/null:/var/www/html/CommonFolder instead of bookmarking, also without success.
Thanks in advance.
