Create windows shortcuts (.lnk files) from anywhere

Project description


Create windows shortcuts (`.lnk` files) from anywhere, including linux..

Python adaptation of some bash/C from that seems to work. I have no
clue how.. All credits go to that author for deciphering the specifications
laid out by Microsoft here:

This currently is able to at least create local windows shortcuts.


To install: ``pip install swinlnk``


from swinlnk.swinlnk import SWinLnk

swl = SWinLnk()

swl.create_lnk('W:\\Foo\\Bar', '/mnt/win_share/playground/Bar_winlink.lnk')
