Upgrading from 0.6.4 to 0.7.0 or greater¶
First, read History in detail. There are a lot of major changes. The big ones are:
- Cookiecutter no longer deletes the cloned repo after generating a project.
- Cloned repos are saved into ~/.cookiecutters/.
- You can optionally create a ~/.cookiecutterrc config file.
Upgrade Cookiecutter either with easy_install:
$ [sudo] easy_install --upgrade cookiecutter
Or with pip:
$ [sudo] pip install -U cookiecutter
Then you should be good to go.
