Initialization of new software projects should be quick and easy.

Boil tries to solve the following problems:

  • Wasting time on the initialisation of new software projects from scratch: creating a file structure, thinking about naming conventions, researching best practices - almost always requires documentation lookup.
  • No consistency between projects. Most developers initiate projects in their own way, which is often incorrect or outdated.
  • Burden of bootstrapping tools for different technologies (separate app generator for Ansible, Django, Rails, etc.).
  • Lack of boilerplates for many software categories. If they already exist, they require manual adjustments.

Here is how:

  • Leverage the Jinja templating engine to automatically generate project files. Ask the user for a minimal set of variables (such as project name, author, license etc.) and inject them into the right place.
  • Organize a centralized, plugable repository for project templates. Let the community decide on their final form.
  • Provide a single API for initializing projects in any technology.
