Typically, I like to use
I use the following to download a copy of the license as
LICENSE to my project (note: this file is already populated with my name and the year 2018)
$ curl -O https://gist.githubusercontent.com/salcode/309331be360efc02e0a8d0d8356c6353/raw/LICENSE
Ultimately, it would be nice to put together a bash command to pull in a copy of the license, auto-populate the year, and prompt for the name.
I like this idea for a future project.
Why I Use this License
Ultimately, I’d like to provide more information on this choice but for now the information at https://choosealicense.com/ has good information.
