Boilerplate for creating github compatible readme files

Background

Creating a good README.md takes forever, especially if you are starting off from scratch. So, I decided to make a few templates to help me speed up things a little bit. The readme-template.md file is a template containing a group of sections that you might want to include on your readme file.

Installation

Open your terminal and type in

$ git clone https://github.com/Yilber/readme-boilerplate.git
$ cd readme-boilerplate

Scaffolding

readme-boilerplate
├── src
│   └── templates
│       ├── header-advanced.md
│       ├── header-simple.md
│       └── readme-template.md
├── LICENSE
└── README.md

How to use

  • Create a README.md file.
  • Pick a header from the templates folder and copy its content onto the README.md file.
  • Update the URLs and add/remove any necessary badge.
  • Copy and paste the content from the readme-template.md onto the README.md file.
  • Add/remove necessary sections and update all URLs.
