A tool that I made is called
GitScaff, it's a simple wrapper
git clone command but makes it a little simpler to clone
repositories as templates from existing GitHub/Gitlab repositories and supports
private repositories and Gitlab repository grouping so if you have boilerplate
that is a private repository, you can still use this utility, because at the end
of the day it is still a simple
No real reason, I was using
degit for a while and then it created an issue
because I couldn't use it for cloning private template repositories and it
didn't support gitlab's repository grouping either so it kinda bummed me out to
have to clone and then get rid of the .git folder and all which i could do with
a single command using an alias (which i should have...) in Linux.
Anyways, I had time to kill so I built this to do that for me.
