added from the github URL. I realise
]dev clones into the
dev folder, I just thought if I have have the package
added this is the version that would get used.
I’m not sure if I understood the question right, but I did not expect
dev to be “in-place” in the sense of allowing editing of the installed copy. Just to create a separate development copy of the previously
So after learning this is not the case, my updated mental model of how this works is this: when I
]dev Package the package is looked up in the main registry and fetched from there regardless of whether it is already in the manifest, so the fact that I have
]added it has no effect, and in fact I can
]dev a package without
]adding it first. Is that correct?
Maybe the docs should somehow be clearer that
dev is a variant of
add as opposed to something you do after
adding. I’m reluctant to try to write it myself at this point, since I’m not sure I really understand how it works yet.
