We can make our own templates for Microsoft Visual Studio but how do you do that for Xamarin Studio?
The only way to create project templates right now is to create a Xamarin Studio add-in that creates the project.
See Creating a Simple Add-in.
You can find template add-ins in the XS install directory (for example .../AddIns/MonoDevelop.MonoDroid/templates) to use as a starting point for your own.
I find the lack of a simple Create Template from Solution option a la Visual Studio to be quite annoying. The process of creating a template add-in is quite tedious.
I wished there would be a simpler way to make a project template. Instead of trying to make a new one, I'll attempt to change a few things on the existing template the way I want.
