Boss Development Tools

The Boss project provides ‘Baseline Open Source Software’ templates and development tools. It has similarities to Paste Script with regards to templating, but far easier to extend. Though Boss is written in Python, it is not limited to any particular language. Boss is very beta... any feedback is welcome and appreciated.


  • Supports multiple local, and remote (git) template sources
  • Templates can easily be created and customized to the developers needs
  • Support for remote files within templates (i.e. github/gitignore files)
