Keep Your Copyright up to date with Laravel-Yearly

Robby Russell has already mentioned it in his blog post here.  How many times have you realized that your Copyright date/year on your website/app was no longer current?

How many of you have the same problem year after year?

How many of you constantly find yourself going to change it every year?

How many of you are always been reminded by your Boss or Manager that you need to change one very little stuff on a project you worked on 12 months ago?

Guys, Holup! Holup!. This is a very serious issue!!!

Just add the following to any view from within Laravel

It provides a helper function and also a Facade that renders the current year and a range of years like so:


You can grab it on GitHub here

You can also grab it using Composer like so:

Robby would say: Do not forget the small stuff  because your visitors will notice!!!
