This little helper allows you to replace the default Hype template with a custom one and can also restore the initial template if you want to go back. You keep your templates in a template folder or with your projects and whenever you need another template you can apply it. Reapplying a template may also become necessary when Hype automatically updates itself. This application is written with JXA and the source is included. Apart from some dialogs and some file copying it doesn't do much to your hard disk but even so it is provided under MIT with no warranty (source for review is included)1.

② Also, if you're interested in writing your own JXA app/script or want to tweak this little helper, read the Mac Automation Scripting Guide and in some cases the JXA cookbook. Another resource for JXA is this great snippet collection. Further more, in the Script Editor , select Window/Library and look for or add an application to inspect what interesting functions it exposes to JXA. Spoiler, Tumult Hype 4 itself isn't scriptable and doesn't expose anything ...
