Usage

Assuming the current year from Date function is 2016:

Node

const rainge = require('rainge');
 
rainge(2016);
//=> '2016' 
 
rainge(1999);
//=> '1999 - 2016' 

Web

<script src="https://rawgit.com/dawsonbotsford/rainge/master/bundle.js"></script>
<script>
  alert('\u00A9 ' + rainge(1999));
  //=> © 1999 - 2016 
</script> 

Or download it with npm install --save rainge and reference it as:

<script src="node_modules/rainge/bundle.js"></script>

About

I was tired of seeing websites in 2016 that said

© 2015

or even worse

© 2012 - 2014

Using rainge, you can set your copyright year once and have it change dynamically year-to-year. If you made your code in 2016, rainge(2016) will return 2016 until it is 2017, at which point rainge(2016) will return 2016 - 2017
