I am using Dashing of ROS2. I am using Python Code. Every time I edit the python code in the node file, I do a "colcon build". Is there a way to avoid having to "colcon build" every time, even when editing python code?

Yes, use a symlinked install.

See #q371822 and Colcon - build - Build Packages:


Use symlinks instead of copying files from the source and build directories where possible.
