Add a License Information to Module Info

MODULE LICENSE INFO

For Module Developers. This module makes license information visible in module info if set in ModuleInfo array

Use


if installed the two elements license and hreflicense could be added to any module.

public static function getModuleInfo() {

	return array(
		// other stuff
		'license' => 'CC-BY',
		'hreflicense' => 'http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/'
	);
}
license

Shortcut of license name. I recommend to use a consistent Syntax.

Some Examples:

  • GNU-GPL
  • GNU-GPLv2
  • CC-BY-NC
  • OPL
  • MIT
  • EPL
hreflicense

Link to detailed license information. Will only be displayed if license is set.

You have 2 Options.

  • absolute url like

    'hreflicense' => 'http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/'

  • relative url to repository file (stored in the modules folder)

    'hreflicense' => 'license.txt'
