  • GitHub repo cookiecutter

    A command-line utility that creates projects from cookiecutters (project templates), e.g. Python package projects, VueJS projects.

    Go ahead and take a look at the documentation as well as the source code and add one more tool to your automation arsenal.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo go

    The Go programming language

    Now that we have cookiecutter installed, we can define our templates and start using them. Even better is the fact that we can use publicly available templates and start coding right away. For our purposes, we'll be creating a Go project using the cookiecutter-golang template:

  • GitHub repo backstage

    Backstage is an open platform for building developer portals

    If you read Backstage Software Templates maybe you noticed something called cookiecutter. So, what is it? Apart from being awesome, cookiecutter is a command-line utility that is able to create projects from templates. This allows us and our teams to specify templates for projects, use those templates and share them among teams. We can even embed it into other tools, like Backstage.
