Referencing files external to a project

You can define references to files that reside outside of a project.

To do this:

  1. Create a file called .cw-refpaths.json in your project
  2. Define the references as follows:
{
    "refPaths": [
        {
            "from": "",
            "to": ""
        }
    ]
}

Where:

  • refPaths is an array of references. A reference’s from property is an absolute or relative path to the file you are referencing. Note that you cannot reference directories.
  • The reference’s to property is a path relative to the root of the project.

Codewind copies the contents of the file that is being referenced, and places it in the file specified by the to path when building and running the project.
