Variable substitution for GitHub Template Repository Usage

Solved! Go to Solution.

GitHub template repositories often have contents that refer to the name of the template repo itself or the account that owns the repo (e.g. Travis-CI GitHub Page auto-publiscation service). I wonder if GitHub template repositories have such token substitution mechanism that substitutes certain elements in a template repo with correct repo owners/repo names.

Re: Variable substitution for GitHub Template Repository Usage

Hey! As far as what I have read, this is not possible. It would be awesome to see this get added. I think the best thing we can do at this point is to add a feature request.
