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

“The end client and designer love the ease at which they can update the website. Training beyond how to log in wasn’t even necessary since ProcessWire’s default interface is straightforward.” —Jonathan Lahijani
