Pre-fill form fields when creating a new repo

You can now create new repositories with pre-filled form fields, making it even easier to define the right info for your new repos from the start.
There are a number of query string parameters available, including:

  • name
  • description
  • visibility
  • owner
  • template_name
  • template_owner

To get started you can craft a query string at the end of starting with ? followed by the fields and their values.

See the example below for more details:
