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!


  • ✔︎ Template Surveys
  • ✔︎ Conditional files and folders
  • ✔︎ After hooks for post-processing
  • Maintanance: Auto Update, Distributed configs
  • 🌟 Confluence: Create spaces with preconfigured page tree


  • Project Templates are simple git repositories
  • Everything is a template you don't have to deal with /template directories or .tmpl files
  • Required informations are asked during the bootstrapping process
