Templates to Start a New Project

The purpose of the templates we provide via our tooling is to simplify getting started on a new project.

On top of templates, remember that Robocorp Portal is full of open-source example robots and broader solutions that you can use as the basis for your new projects.

Our tooling also supports using company-specific templates, and you can also use standard version control practices and have your projects start from a git repository you have made (rcc pull --help).

๐Ÿš€ So, we have options, but we are here to talk about the templates Robocorp offers.

Templates overview

As we can only show a limited amount of explanations in the tooling, here we try to give a better understanding of the templates to help you in the selection process.

NOTE: All templates should run out-of-the-box in Control Room, VS Code, or with just RCC, so do not hesitate to use them as first testers as-is.

The Python templates are now working on top of our new robo -libraries and framework. This makes Python development super simple and powerful.

๐Ÿš€ Think Python logging without a single line of code!

Don't forget that rpaframework -libraries can also be used directly in Python robots.
