Fresh App Factory

Fresh App Factory is a project that generates template repositories for popular project boilerplate generators.

Template repositories provides an easy way to start a new project. Rather than having to install extra npm packages just to create a new project, you just click Use this template and clone the repository to your development environment (or launch a cloud-based development environments, e.g. GitHub Codespaces, GitPod, or CodeSandbox).

However, if left unmaintained, template repositories may become out-of-date over time. For example, the template may depend on an older version of a repository.

For example, it may contain outdated dependencies. Fresh App Factory solves this by re-generating every template repository everyday using well-known project generators. This ensures that the template repositories here are up-to-date, hence the name “Fresh.”
