Unity Starter Template

I thought that it might be helpful for anyone teaching Unity and using GitHub to have a starter template that has the a baseline .gitattributes and .gitignore already setup as a template. I have had some success starting my students here and then having them add their Unity project to this folder.

Please let me know if you need any assistance setting it up or getting everything functioning properly.


Hello Nathan,
I think this is a pretty nice idea.
I usually create something similar, but with a ready-to-go Unity project.
In my Academy we install a fixed Unity version that will last for a full year, so I usually stick to that one and create an empty project, with the .gitignore settings (I also add the Windows and macOS ignores).

I will then use the template to create new, more focused, templates (for instance, by editing the package manifest file).

Thanks for sharing!
