REUSE offers many tools and methods to support developers in making their licensing more clear and simple. This API is an additional component and enables other users to see a project's REUSE status transparently.
This repository contains the web part for all user interaction. The parts needed for the external server performing the checks are hosted in the api-worker repository.
This service is accessible via api.reuse.software, but interested users can set up their own instance.
- Users can register any public Git repository with this API.
- The API runs the linter on each registered project.
- Re-check projects if they have been updated (new commit).
- Informative information page for each registered project.
- Offer a live badge indicating the REUSE compliance status.
- Offer a JSON for parsing the current REUSE status.
Copyright and licensing is difficult, especially when reusing software from different projects that are released under various different licenses. REUSE was started by the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) to provide a set of recommendations to make licensing your Free Software projects easier. Not only do these recommendations make it easier for you to declare the licenses under which your works are released, but they also make it easier for a computer to understand how your project is licensed.
As a short summary, the recommendations are threefold:
- Choose and provide licenses
- Add copyright and licensing information to each file
- Confirm REUSE compliance
You are recommended to read the recommendations in full for more details.
Please refer to the /doc directory of this project for information on how to install and configure the REUSE API.
