Packaging your project as template

Since version 0.4.2, you can start a new project with an existing template. It allow you to reuse or share your OCT projects for specific cases

Packaging your project

Since OCT wait for a tar archive as template, you can simply package your project like this :

$ cd my_project
$ tar -zcvf my_template_name.tar.gz *

To be used as a template, your project directory structure should look like this :

├── config.json  # config file is mandatory
├── templates  # templates directory is mandatory
│   ├── css
│   │   └── style.css
│   ├── img
│   ├── report.html  # html report template is mandatory
│   └── scripts
│       └── pygal-tooltip.min.js
└── test_scripts


You can add as many files and directories as you need in your archive, they will be extracted

Using your template

OCT provide an option to new-project command to use a template :

oct new-project project_name --template path/to/template.tar.gz

This command will create a new directory with the content of your template
