How do I create a readable symlink from within a
~/Library/Containers/.../Data/ app folder to a file outside?
It seems that due to the macOS sandboxing mechanism, this doesn't work out of the box. That is, I can create a symlink fine, but the app I use won't be allowed to read the symlinked file.
- My intent is to customize the setup of my own machine. I'm not an app developer.
- Editing the file
~/Library/Containers/.../might help. So far, I've not had success yet.
- Personal use case: being able to open an app from two different user accounts on the same machine and share the same app-database.
