Clio uses templates for creating the projects. Official templates are “web” and “node”. The “web” template is setup to bundle your project for the web, using Babel and Rollup bundler. You can use any git repository as a template, just pass the clone address of the git to the --template flag (in form of https://address/of/git/repo or git@host:repo ).
