This is a tool that will allow you to download specified files from an existing Github repository and place them into your local project. This is useful for adding a common CircleCI, license or file from a template repo.

To install:

composer global require inplacecli/inplace ^0

Alternatively, if you would like the signed .phar version:

wget &&
wget &&
sudo chmod +x inplace.phar && mv inplace* /usr/local/bin

To run:

inplace fetch

Behind the scenes, this will close the repository locally and then check for the existence of a .inplace.yml file which denotes the files within the repository to copy into the current directory.

This is the format of an .inplace.yml file:

  - circle.yml
  - .drone.yml

The Inplace tool and packages are written by Scott Wilcox.
