Formulae Technica

2021-06-29

I’ve added a new section of this site, containing starting templates I use for technical projects: Formulae Technica.

Recently I wrote about my shell script template, which is itself a formula. I also have a Python commandline script formula.

I define a quicklink for each template, so that I can easily download it from the commandline or send it to a friend over chat. For instance:

And finally, I keep a script called instantiate on my machines. This script can download any template to my local machine to start a new project. It can list all Formulae Technica templates available on my site via a special /formulae/index.formulae.txt file, which I generate using Hugo custom outputs.
