CLI tool for generating Licenses. Easily.

Stay Tuned ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

v. 1.0 is coming!

  • mklicense will behave like an old school text-based game, to drive you to which license suits best for your project (thanks Jerod Santo for the idea). But still keeping its value as-is, behaving like a straight-to-the-point tool.

Why should I use this?

  • Licenses are boring;
  • Copy/paste stuff is so 1999;
  • The GitHub LICENSE generator doesn't necessarily includes your information inside the file;
  • It's busy people/beginner's friendly. It doesn't have all those flags to just install a license;
  • You shouldn't trust other people to store your LICENSE sources. LICENSEs are sensible.


$ npm install -g mklicense


$ mklicense

Since its version 0.1.4, mklicense needs Node version >=4 to run properly.

Licenses included

  • Unlicense
  • MIT
  • Apache 2.0
  • MPL 2.0
  • GNU LGPL 3.0
  • GNU GPL 3.0
  • GNU AGPL 3.0

You talk about trust. So, where are all the licenses located?

mklicense extracts licenses from (which is curated by GitHub), and creates a .txt file for your desired project. I have no control over any license, which is a good thing for you and me.
