⚖ licensed is a simple, interactive command line interface to help you choose and quickly add a
LICENSEfile to your project.
Make sure you have NodeJS (npm 5.2+) installed on your computer. Then, setup is as simple as:
$ npx licensed
If you've got an older version of node (npm version < 5.2) that doesn't yet have
npx, here's a more traditional setup:
$ npm i -g licensed
After installation, navigate to your project directory ie. the directory you want your
LICENSE file to be placed. Then:
