Atomist discourages the use of templates

One of the guiding principles of Atomist is that editors and generators should originate from working projects and those projects should remain operational under their native tooling. Using templates undermines this principle. Templates are hard to test and it is easy to forget to keep them up to date. We recommend transforming real project files over using templates hidden away under the .atomist/templates directory.

Rug Templates are files that contain parameterized content that can be used by Rug generators and editors. Templates are located in the .atomist/templates directory.

Currently Rug supports using both Velocity and Mustache styles of template. Velocity templates must have a .vm extension. Mustache templates must have a .mustache extension.
