How to use a template repository?

It is possible to create a new repository from a template. This option is easier than cloning the repository because it avoids problems with the .git files.

Using the template, you can create a new one with the name that you want, based on the available template. To do so, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the template repository that you want to use:

    imageimage

  2. Click on the green button Use this template:

    templatetemplate

  3. Choose your repository name and click on Create repository from template:

    save_reposave_repo

You can also choose if the repository is going to be public or private and provide a description.

After doing those steps, you can clone the repository that you've just created
