Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge

CII Best Practices CircleCI Build Status codecov FOSSA Status License

This project identifies best practices for Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) and implements a badging system for those best practices. The "BadgeApp" badging system is a simple web application that lets projects self-certify that they meet the criteria and show a badge. The real goal of this project is to encourage projects to apply best practices, and to help users determine which FLOSS projects do so. We believe that FLOSS projects that implement best practices are more likely to produce better software, including more secure software.

See the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) Best Practices badge website if you want to try to actually get a badge.

This is the development site for the criteria and badge application software that runs the website. Feedback is very welcome via the GitHub site as issues or pull (merge) requests. There is also a mailing list for general discussion.

Summary of Best Practices Criteria "passing" level

This is a summary of the passing criteria, with requirements in bold (for details, see the full list of criteria):

Summary of Best Practices Criteria for higher levels

Getting a passing badge is a significant achievement; on average only about 10% of pursuing projects have a passing badge. That said, some projects would like to meet even stronger criteria, and many users would like projects to do so. We have established two higher levels beyond passing: silver and gold. The higher levels strengthen some of the passing criteria and add new criteria of their own.

Silver

Here is a summary of the silver criteria, with requirements in bold (for details, see the full list of silver criteria):

Gold

Here is a summary of the gold criteria, with requirements in bold (for details, see the full list of gold criteria):
