pipx install cookiecutter

Instantiating a new project from a cookiecutter template

Assuming the template is a git repo somewhere, point cookiecutter at the git URL:


If it’s in a local directory, point at that:

cookiecutter ../my-template

You can also instantiate a zipped template, either local or remote.

User config

You can set some personal configuration that will be used anytime you instantiate any template.


Cookiecutter can save and reuse your responses to the prompts during template instantiation.
