Create a skill using a public template on GitHub

Sometimes, you will want to create a new skill using a template that you may have found on the Internet, or perhaps you have a starter template that you like to use when building your skills. You can do that by creating a new skill using the ask-cli, and then providing the .git url for the skill template you would like to use.

ask new --url https://github.com/ajot/python-skill-basic-template.git

You may get a warning – “Downloading skill template from unofficial resource. Please make sure you understand what each script is doing to best protect yourself from malicious usage”.

Type “yes”

This will create the skill locally on your machine.
