OmniFocus vs. Things

I’m thinking about a transition from OmniFocus to Things. I’ve used OF since launch, so this is no trivial matter.

This line from a post by micro.blog user @40Tech resonates:

OmniFocus almost begs you to add projects and contexts.

I never seem to gain value from contexts/tags, but I add them every time, because nature abhors a vacuum.

My main area of doubt is templating. I’ve got a nice Drafts template built that populates a standardised OmniFocus project. Does Things offer any form of similar automation?
