Project description

A command-line utility that creates projects from project templates, e.g. creating a Python package project from a Python package project template.

Features

  • Simple command line usage.

  • Works with any type of text file.

  • Directory names and filenames can be templated. For example:

    {{project.repo_name}}/{{project.repo_name}}/{{project.repo_name}}.py
    
  • Supports unlimited levels of directory nesting.

  • Simply define your template variables in a JSON file. For example:

    {
        "full_name": "Audrey Roy",
        "email": "audreyr@gmail.com",
        "project_name": "A Lot of Effort",
        "repo_name": "alotofeffort",
        "project_short_description": "Deploy static HTML sites to S3 with the simple 'alotofeffort' command.",
        "release_date": "2013-07-10",
        "year": "2013",
        "version": "0.1.1"
    }
    
  • All templating is done with Jinja2. Cookiecutter simply renders a directory of Jinja2 templates to files, including rendering the dir names and filenames.
