pub/static of my theme were actually symbolic links to the actual files. This was also when I ran a
setup:static-content:deploy action from the shell.
However, I recently migrated to a new system and checked out the code and the database of the project, but now when I deploy my static content, they are copies rather than Symbolic links.
Is something changed? Or am I missing some configuration setting here? It's not very productive to have to re-compile the static content every time I make a change to the JS or CSS.
I'm using Magento 2.0.6
