The nensskel package provides so-called "paster templates" for easy creation of new lizard websites, libraries and so on.
The nensskel script creates a directory structure with lots of basic files (like a readme and a setup.py) already there and partially filled in. Optionally it also creates a trunk/tags/branches structure in svn for you.
Just call the nensskel script to get usage information.
Installation can be done as a development installation or by a simple:
easy_install -i http://lizardpackages.vanrees.org nensskel
Do the regular python bootstrap.py && bin/buildout and you're set up. The nensskel and paster script are created in the bin/ directory.
There's one python script in nensskel/*.py per template. The actual templates are in nensskel/templates/*. See http://pythonpaste.org/script/developer.html for some limited documentation on what paster can do. If you want examples: http://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/ZopeSkel/trunk/ is the most elaborate set of templates available.
Run the tests with bin/test and don't forget to look at the buildbot after you made changes as it is particularly easy to make only-works-locally mistakes when working on paster templates.
