SPDX licenses list and validation library.
Originally written as part of composer/composer, now extracted and made available as a stand-alone library.
Install the latest version with:
$ composer require composer/spdx-licenses
<?php use Composer\Spdx\SpdxLicenses; $licenses = new SpdxLicenses(); // get a license by identifier $licenses->getLicenseByIdentifier('MIT'); // get a license exception by identifier $licenses->getExceptionByIdentifier('Autoconf-exception-3.0'); // get a license identifier by name $licenses->getIdentifierByName('MIT License'); // check if a license is OSI approved by identifier $licenses->isOsiApprovedByIdentifier('MIT'); // check if input is a valid SPDX license expression $licenses->validate($input);
Read the specifications to find out more about valid license expressions.
- PHP 5.3.2 is required but using the latest version of PHP is highly recommended.
