Symlinks on Mac OSX

Leave a comment

Setting up symlinks on OSX is a breeze…

Example

sudo ln -s "/Applications/myapp.app/Contents/bin/myapp" /bin/myapp

This also has the additional benefit of adding myapp to the $PATH as /etc/paths contains an entry for /bin by default. Now the app is added to the path it can be launched within the terminal from any location.
