When creating create-til I came across an npm link command that was supposed to create a symlink to the file that hosted the "create-til" cli tool code.

I didn't know what a symlink was, so I googled.

The simple definition of what I found was a symlink is a shortcut to another file. What this does is allow me to run my create-til command from anywhere in my file system and have my commandline understand what the create-til does.

Here are two resources for the same:
