Is there a way to set up a default readme for a GitHub organization?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Within a team or organization is it possible to supply a default readme that, when a new repository is created, will automatically appear and have questions/fields for the creator to fill out?

 

Cheers

Hi @resthomas,

 

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our community organized so users can more easily find information.

 

As you’ll notice, your topic is now here in the How to use Git and GitHub board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here.

 

To address your question, it sounds like you'd like to have a README template (similar to an issue template) so that any new repo that gets opened has the same standard formatting and content across all repos within a given organization. I do not think this is currently possible; however, I can understand how that could be valuable.

We're always working to improve GitHub, and we consider every suggestion we receive. I've logged your feature request in our internal feature request list. Though I can't guarantee anything or share a timeline for this, I can tell you that it's been shared with the appropriate teams for consideration.

 

 

Cheers!
