Add a License Information to Module Info


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


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' => ''

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

Some Examples:

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

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

You have 2 Options.

  • absolute url like

    'hreflicense' => ''

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

    'hreflicense' => 'license.txt'

Displayed translatable linktext: read more

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
