It’s been a long time I have not published anything here but now I come back and share something that will be useful for a lot of my projects and maybe yours…
A little bit bored from having to add a license to each of my projects, READMEs, etc…
I decided to create a github page for the MIT license (the one I use for a lot of my projects) filled with my information.
But when you do that and know that you only have to change your name and optionaly provide a link, you tell yourself, “What else???”.
As a good developper, you want your creation to be usefull for other people!
This is what I did :
To personalize it, you just have to add some search-like information in the url’s hash
name: yours or your companies
link: (optional) a URL or mailto link to give the visitor a chance to contact you
Take me, my name is
Benjamin Caradeuc and my personal website (where you can find how to contact me) is located at
The URL will be :
Don’t forget to escape the data that you put in the url for a better compatibility!
If you don’t want to personalize the page, you can pass a space in the name parameter. The space escaped code is
%20, so the url will be :
This will result in an anonymous license text.
If you like (or if you don’t) that project, let me know in the comments below!
See you next hack ;-)
