    Currently, it's mostly copy/paste python, but I do plan on adding to this in the future. It's like NPM's init command, except you do 'xbrew <console_type> <project_name>' (if xbrew is in path, and python is installed) and you have full boilerplate code.

    Alright, guess I'll be that guy...

    What's a homebrew "boilerplate"?

    Boilerplate code is like a template of source files, even a project with all the required files for a minimum skeleton for a basic program. That is good for getting up and running in no time, so the newcomers can start working on the desired matter without fighting with tedious minimals like initialization of libraries and such. This is a very common concept for developers.

    If you don't know what it is it's probably not useful to you :P

    Well, I didn't know about it too. And it sounds useful. This is not basic knowledge.

    I don't understand why this is a CLI tool. All it does it make a folder and throw the template files into it.

    Does save you a bit of work I guess, just open a terminal from anywhere after this is added to the PATH and tell it to initialise a project there.
    What boilerplate means in this context *is* basic knowledge to people who could benefit from it, I'm fairly certain.
