Use local template
There are cases (e.g. behind some finicky proxies) where downloading the template from GitHub is not always possible. vue-cli provides an option to read the template from a local folder, e.g.
vue init ~/fs/path/to/template my-project
I looked at the docs and there doesn’t seem to be such an option with quasar-cli
wouldnt npm install also fail then?
You can always clone the template folder of the template and use that. Npm install might still be an issue
