While using https://github.com/lens/project-template, I got a bit annoyed that I have to copy all the files manually (when I git clone, I get the history of the template) and also customize the template for my project name / github user name / ... each time. To make this process easier, I wrote a little program that allows you to use patterns in your template and does the copying:

It's really simple, but fits my needs. The haskell template I use can be found at: https://github.com/bennofs/dotfiles/tree/master/.themplate.
If you have any suggestions / improvements to the code, I'd be interrested to hear!submitted by pycube
