License your project

Project Description


Notary is a Python CLI tool to help you manage your project’s license. Licenses are fetched from choosealicense.

Installation

pip install notary

Usage

$ notary
Usage: notary [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

Manages your project's license.

Options:
-h, --help  Show this message and exit.

Commands:
add     Adds a license, replacing any that might exist.
remove  Removes any license present in the current folder.
$ notary add --help
Usage: notary add [OPTIONS]

Tries to find a license that matches the given LICENSE argument. If one
exists and takes a author and year, it adds them to the license. Otherwise
it writes the license without an author and year and informs the user.

:param license_name: the 'human' name of the license that should be added.
Notary will try to guess the actual name from this. :param author: Tuple
representing the name of the author. :param year: Integer representing the
year that will be written to the license.

Options:
-l, --license TEXT  The name of the license you want to add. Doesn't have to
                    be exact.
-a, --author TEXT   The name that will be on the license. Is ignored if not
                    required.
-y, --year INTEGER  The year that will be on the license. Is ignored if not
                    required.  [default: 2017]
-h, --help          Show this message and exit.
