butler

Butler is an automatation tool to scaffold new projects in only a few seconds. We provide a powerful interactive cli. When you create a project template you can create a Survey. Surveys are used to collect informations from the users to generate individual templates. Beside templating we also plan to integrate common commands for popular Project Management Tools like Jira, Confluence in Butler.

Bootstraping projects should be fun!
