FIle System Templates
# Cast > command line app for file system templates.
Cist can modify the structure of multiple directories at once. Provided these directories are registered for a common template - moving, renaming or deleting folders from that template will apply those changes to the directories (called instances of the template).
`sh git clone https://github.com/taesko/cast.git cd cast pip install . `
NOTE: This project has only been tested on linux. Installation is no different on other OS provided git and pip are installed, but it’s not guaranteed to work properly.
## Usage example
Use any existing directory to make a template out of it. `sh cast add template_name ./dir_path `
Register any other directory to that template as it’s instance `sh cast register template_name /directory/we/want/registered `
If the directory’s structure is not conformed to the template’s an error is raised. That is the instance must contain directories with the same as the template’s. (it is OK for the instance to have other directories as well)
Create additional directories inside a template: `sh cast add -m template_name various dir_names dir_names/similar to mkdir arguments `
Rename a directory inside a template `sh cast mv template_name relative_src_path relative_dst_path `
Remove a directory from a template `sh cast rm template_name multiple relative/directory/paths `
Commands that modify a templates structure all take the name of the template as a first argument and relative paths (considered from the root of the template not the current working directory) to the desired directories as additional arguments. Moving and renaming directories by default applies the same changes to instances of the template as well but this is not true for removing directories.

## Development setup
There is no development branch (yet) and setup is nearly identical to user installation. `sh git clone https://github.com/taesko/cast.git cd cast pip install -e . `
