Why the Master Templates?

With the use of version control, there is a huge struggle among most people to do a brief of what their project is about. Lets face it, most developers are not into typing out prose to explain what they just built. Others dread the whole process of documenting it.
In addition, what to include so that someone else working on their project can benefit from their amazing work can sometimes be a hard task.
This is the foundation behind this project. A sample project that allows you to get started with a well written file.

ReadMe MasterTemplates:

  • Give developers an easy time when writing their project ReadMe.

  • Enable more time to be spent coding out their projects.

  • Help us have better github projects without one liners.

  • Help people who want to use the various projects on github to know more about the project's architecture.

How to use them

  1. All the files are in markdown format. While it is good to learn markdown. It is always great to have the Markdown CheatSheet bookmarked somewhere in your browser. If you can learn it, awesome! It will save you time...But it really is not important: the more you use markdown, the better you get at it O.o.

  2. There are different Markdown templates for each type of project as below:

    • Android- For android focused ReadMe
    • Website- For your HTML&CSS JS projects
    • brief - minimal version
    • IOS ...coming soon - FOr IOS projects
    • Scripts ....coming soon - For Python, JS type projects
  3. Copy the respective files depending on the type of project. Paste it and edit the file.

  4. As a general rule, provide link to download the app if its published on the playstore /website if it is hosted at the description section above.See image below 👇 👇
