What is it?

Are you forever creating new projects, re creating the same standard cruft over and over? Then Facio maybe for you, it allows you to create your standard project skeleton once and create new projects from that standard skeleton over and over, easily.

It can be as simple or as complicated as you need it to be. You can write logic into your skeleton, store it in a git or mercurial repository, you can even write hooks to be run before or after your skeletons been built. Did I mention you can have as many templates as you like and quickly reference them by name or pick from a list.

Facio aims to hopefully fix your standard project skeleton woes.
