When I work with C I have a template-file with some basic #include’s, #define’s and a int main(… I always use. Not very important, but I find it efficient.
When I start a project with cargo new it always starts with code to say ‘Hello World”. Funny, but exactly never useful. Is there an easy way to replace that code with a template of my own?
Here's a topic with the same question: How to set a cargo new template?
I may not understand that topic enough, but I think that it gives a complicated solution for a simpel thing: the Hello World code cargo opens with, must reside somewhere. All I want is to replace that.
The HW-code is probably here.
To solve the general case you can use something like
cookiecutter. Though I've personally never used it (in any language), I prefer to make proper packages and add them as dependencies.
yes, that's possible, as pointed out already.
but there's also alternatives to
cargo new. for instance, how about
cargo generate my-favorite-template
cargo scaffold my-other-favorite-template
Thanks! And my apologies for my dumbness
