LiceNjs generates license files. No more hunting down licenses from other projects.
npm install -g licenjs

Generate a BSD-3 license, specifying the year and organization to be used:
$ licenjs -y 2012 -o "Dream Leaves" Copyright (c) 2012, Dream Leaves All rights reserved. Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, ...
If organization is not specified, licenjs will NOT attempt to use
git config (too lazy to add async to THIS, let's get serious) to find your name. It will ONLY 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:
$ licenjs --vars mit The mit license template contains the following variables: year organization
Great! Is it a license that is commonly used? If so, open an issue or, if you are feeling generous, fork and submit a pull request. (And don't forget to send it back to the original lice project too!)
