    Hi,

    I was wondering if it would be possible to define my own template/skeleton projects using the new Package Manager?

    What I'd like to do is to compose a certain number of packages using the SEMVER scheme to build a starting point for new projects where I checked myself and do know that each package does work correctly with each other. This would also ensure that new projects will still start on a stable ground even if some packages have advanced in a positive way but would also break something because of conflicts with other packages.

    Cheers

    This could also be useful for education / tutorials.

    Hi @AndreasO,

    This is the direction we wan't to go with the project template feature. We want to enable all users to create their own project templates (pre-defined dependencies, initial scene, sample assets, etc.). We are working on nailing the process on our end before sharing with everyone :).

    Regards,

    Hi @AnamnesiaLudo,

    The feature is still not ready to be added to our public API. If you are ok to use non-documented/non-public API you can use the
    cloneProjectFromTemplate
    command-line argument. My colleague explained its usage in this post.

    Hope it helps,

    Pascal

    Dudes, come on. Perhaps something to add via the Hub. Isn't it just settling on a folder to dump our custom templates into? An 'install from package' would also be nice.

    everyone liked that. I hope it'll be ready at least as experimental. With a lot of Unity upgrades it'll be easier to move project between versions.
