Project description


Cookiecutter templates discovery and management.


$ pip install cookiejar
$ cookiejar create <templatename> [options]

The following commands are available:

$ cookiejar list [--index=<index>]
$ cookiejar search <text> [--index=<index>]
$ cookiejar add <package_name> [<url>] [--index=<index>]
$ cookiejar installed
$ cookiejar remove <package_name>

Creating new packages from a template

To create a new package:

$ cookiejar create <template_name> [options]
