SPDX license list database

Project Description

A Python module incorporating an interface to the SPDX license database.

This library serves purely as a holder for the database that can be found on the SPDX website.

To more easily query this database or detect licenses, consider using something like spdx-lookup.


See the spdx/ file for the very simple interface.

tl;dr: spdx.licenses() gets you the licenses, and spdx.License is a nice wrapper for interacting with them.
