Create a new project directory easily!

Make all the things.

I was starting a new data analysis project today, and came to the realisation I’ve been doing things stupidly. When I start a new project, I’ve been manually adding directories, copying over previously used Makefile’s and other scripts, and generally doing things slow.

So, I realised I should streamline this. I wrote a bash script to set up a new project directory (how I like it, ymmv). It also does some other neat stuff like creating a basic Makefile.
