I want to have a /project/src/ folder with my project modules and have a /project/yui3/src with the source code for YUI modules.

Shifter should be able to handle both folders during build and watch.

I'm not totally sure on this one, what are you expecting shifter to do here?

You "could" add a custom "postexec" to your global config, that would then call shifter in a sub directory.

Something like this:

    "name": "foo",
    "postexec": [
    "builds": {


Then in buildyui.sh (or js).

cd ../yui3/src/loader;

Or something along those lines, then when you --watch the foo build, after it's done it will execute the postexec and build what you need in yui.

I've just noticed this issue - this may now be possible with the --recurse option we just added in #50

On the other hand, I may be completely misunderstanding the use-case here ;)
