I have setup a boilerplate for Craft sites with a homepage Single setup, plugins installed, common field types setup and a few other jobs I have to do every single time I start a new project.

I was wondering if this is something I can safely turn into a CraftCMS boilerplate?

In an ideal world it's something I'd keep in Git and when I start a new project in 3 months time or whatever it may be, I can copy this project.yaml into my new project and I'm an hour or so ahead of where I would be.

I know technically I probably could, but I'd like some advice on whether this is something I should or should not be doing.

I have just setup a Craft 3 boilerplate and got it working great. So yeah... this does work.

    did you have to sync changes after first install or did the yaml file automatically get applied? Commented Mar 17, 2019 at 14:01
