After all the storm with WSL2! in (Windows 10 2004) I decided to give development on Windows an other chance. :-)
I am running some NodeJS projects on WSL2 with WSL Node interpreter and they work fine. I have also switched the terminal to use wsl.exe so that I can have direct access to any Linux functionality I am used to having while developing on Linux.
The problem is that the project contains symlinks. Everything works fine with the Run/Debug configuration since it is natively using WSL, but in the project files IDEA cannot understand symlink to folders.
Is there a way to fix this, or if not, is it an issue that is going to be tackled soon? VSCode works out of the box with WSL2 integration and symlinks etc...
I believe that with the change of Microsoft's direction to support Windows as a development platform, WSL2 should be natively integrated in Jetbrains products so that it can provide an equivalent development experience between Linux and Windows on an overall great product.
Feel free to sugget any solutions to the symlink problem!
