blitz new

Generates a new Blitz project in the current directory. You can choose between a full Blitz project and a minimal project. The former includes a database setup, authentication, and all of the other configuration that makes Blitz's magic work. The minimal template is a bare Blitz project with a minimum set of dependecies.
