Licensize is a super simple app that adds a LICENSE file to your current
pip install licensize
python setup.py install
...to license the current directory as GPL 3.0 using your git or mercurial
config name in the copyright notice. Or...
licensize -a 'Hacker Corp.' -l mit -n COPYING
...to save the MIT license licensed to 'Hacker Corp.' to a COPYING file in the
License name list is searched for close matches with a preference on newer
more common licenses, so "bsd" will match "BSD 3 Clause", and "bsd2" will
match "BSD 2 Clause".
It's a great script to speed up creating a new repo for a little FOSS licensed
library or something, like if you want to quickly spin off a rails / Django
app, or jQuery plugin, as a properly licensed GPL or MIT licensed FOSS software
package. Hopefully will help combat "license laziness" which plagues
github/bitbucket presently with so many un-licensed projects.
Fork requests are welcome of course :)
