Get to building stuff faster

Capture good practice once by building templates of your code projects straight in your file system, and render them interactively from the command line.

Works With Any Language

Templates are language agnostic. So no matter your language of choice, you can create templates to help you get straight to implementing your idea faster.

Interactive Renderer

At render time you can ask questions and have the responses rendered in to any generated file or file name.

Simple JSON Template Definition

Template definitions are written in a simple and straight forward JSON or JSONNET manifest.
