Keeping source outside kibana-extra

Hi Team,

It is possible to keep the plugin development source code outside the kibana-extra?

We using a mono repository, We used to have all the projects within the repo for CI/CD. Am trying to keep the plugin development inside modo repo. The plugin development folder structure will be:

Am trying to link the KBN, plugin-helpers by using:


Am facing error on doing yarn start as well as yarn build saying:

I have done yarn kbn bootstrap which is successfully done but am facing problem with building and starting the plugin.
