Advent of Code Python Template for Copier

This template creates scaffolding for one day of Advent of Code. It includes tests and can download your personal input data if you have advent-of-code-data installed.

Quick Start

The first time you use this template you should make sure that you have Copier installed and optionally advent-of-code-data as well. You can install these with pipx and pip:

$ pipx install copier
$ python -m pip install advent-of-code-data

Once you have Copier on your system, you can create Advent of Code solution templates as follows:

$ copier advent_of_code

This will ask you about which year and day you want to template. The files are copied into a subdirectory of the advent_of_code directory on your computer.
