Generate a license file for a project

Latest Version: 0.4

# lice

Lice generates license files. No more hunting down licenses from other projects.


## Installation

easy_install lice

or

pip install lice


## Overview

Generate a BSD-3 license, the default:

$ lice
Copyright (c) 2013, Jeremy Carbaugh

All rights reserved.

...

Generate an MIT license:

$ lice mit

Generate a BSD-3 license, specifying the year and organization to be used:

$ lice -y 2012 -o "Sunlight Foundation"
Copyright (c) 2012, Sunlight Foundation

All rights reserved.

If organization is not specified, lice will first attempt to use `git config` to find your name. If not found, it will use the value of the $USER environment variable. If the project name is not specified, the name of the current directory is used. Year will default to the current year.

You can see what variables are available to you for any of the licenses:

$ lice --vars mit
The mit license template contains the following variables:
year
organization
