Android Licenses Page

This repository contains an example of how to produce a licenses page for an Android app similar to the ones found in Google apps such as Play Music and Gmail.

Usage

You need to include the following files:

  • LicensesFragment.java in your projects source
  • /res/layout/licenses_fragment.xml layout file
  • /res/raw/licenses.html licenses file

You will need to update the namespace of LicensesFragment, and you may as well check out the other TODOs while you're there - things like removing the support library references if you aren't using it, and extracting the dialog title out to your strings file.

To display licenses for your app, you need to update the licenses.html file to suit (including any libraries you've used, their licenses, copyrights, and any links to source you may have modified, if required), then you can display it as follows:

LicensesFragment.displayLicensesFragment(getSupportFragmentManager());

You can also display it yourself as you would any other DialogFragment.

If you clone the repository, you should be able to open the included AndroidLicensesPageExampleProject in Android Studio and run it directly on any device running Android 2.1 or higher.
