Question: For contributing to CLI, is there a way to locally link to the new CLI changes?

Hi @echoing-needle-59281! Background: Iā€™m trying to make some changes to the CLI output while project initialization, etc. I would like to try out the CLI commands locally before pushing any changes!
Something like
yarn link
for python. šŸ“¦

If you setup your meltano development environment with https://meltano.com/docs/contributing.html#where-to-start you should be able to run
meltano
I think this part should do that
Copy code
# Install dev dependencies with the edit flag on to detect changes
# Note: you may have to escape the .`[dev]` argument on some shells, like zsh
pip install -e .[dev]
Notice the
-e
which means
--editable
, i.e. install from source
@adorable-yacht-38347 Got it working?
