Under The Hood

The underscore folders, e.g. {{cookiecutter.project_slug}}/_, contain files that are used to integrate optional content through template includes or by the post generate hook, according to the choices made during the cookiecutter execution.

The generators folder contains scripts to pre-generate code skeletons that are integrated manually in this cookiecutter (e.g. framework setups).

Please refer to the README files in those folders for additional details.
