Description

Symlinking themes to the theme directory does not work.

This feature is more important than ever, since developers usually use various build tools.
The repository – almost everytime – looks something like this:

.
├── build
├── src
├── package.json
└── readme.md

The build folder contains the generated theme. Currently it is necessary to use a script to copy the build files to the Wordpress theme folder, after a successful build.

It would be much easier to symlink the build folder to the WP themes directory. This way you keep your repository and the WordPress themes folder clean.
