How to use the Licenses Package

This package can be used in three ways (develop, distribute, and deploy).

  1. To create and access license data in JSON form.

    The package contains a data file (./licenses/licenses.db) and a scraper (licenses/ which and updates the data file:

    $ hg clone
    $ cd licenses
    $ python licenses/

    A report will be printed about changes to the licenses data.

  2. Access of the data via a simple python API:

    >>> from licenses import Licenses
    >>> L = Licenses()
    >>> for l in L: print l
    >>> print l['odb-odbl']
    {'status': 'active', ...
  3. Deployment as a service.

    Install or update the Python package, then create the service files:

    $ python licenses/ <path>

    A whole set of files will be created at <path> which can then be served directly by your webserver.
