A cookiecutter is a command-line utility that creates projects from cookiecutters (project templates).
The Pylons Project supports one official Pyramid cookiecutter pyramid-cookiecutter-starter.
Cookiecutters that use Pyramid can be found using a search of the GitHub topic "cookiecutter-template" for "Pyramid".
You can extend Pyramid by creating a cookiecutter project template. This is useful if you would like to distribute a customizable configuration of Pyramid to other users. Once you have created a cookiecutter, other people can use it to create a custom version of your Pyramid application.

See Cookiecutter Installation to get started.
Then see the README of
pyramid-cookiecutter-starter for its usage to generate a starter project.
pyramid-cookiecutter-starter on its
main branch is a good starting point to develop your own cookiecutter.
Development of cookiecutters is documented under Learn the Basics of Cookiecutter by Creating a Cookiecutter.
