cc-license-chooser

This is the Creative Commons JavaScript license selector in the form of a JavaScript widget.

Web browsers can only be expected to load a single file from us.

Updates

This is an updated version of the JavaScript license chooser.

  • It only shows 4.0 licenses
  • It can show CC0 as well
  • Only in en_US right now

If you're already using the code, you might find this hosted version useful:

Overview

The code is structured as follows:

  • An HTML page includes complete.js, which PHP renders
    • they can pass a variable on the query string to set the language, which is why we involve PHP
    • an alternate design would be to include different static files: complete.en.js, etc.
  • complete.js loads the CSS and static JS files that hardly change
  • complete.js loads template.js.var (for Apache Content Negotiation to pick a language) or template.js.LANG_ID if a language was specified

All of our JS and HTML and CSS is prefixed with cc_js_ to avoid namespace collisions with others' applications.

Every night, if you run make -s here, it'll update the translations and jurisdiction info.

Local Development

To run this project locally, install Python requirements listed in requirements.txt using: pip install -r requirements.txt.

SimpleTAL is not available on PyPI and must be installed manually by downloading the latest release and installing it using python setup.py install (make sure to download the Python 2.7 compatible release, not the latest release). Using a virtualenv is recommended, if you don't install SimpleTAL in a virtualenv, you may have to add its install location to your environment's PYTHONPATH.

Renamed

This project was previously named LicenseChooser.js. The name was updated to cc-license-chooser in 2019 March to follow current JavaScript best practices.

I’m not familiar with the all license options, so I don’t even bother. Everything on posted this site is public domain (http://www.phpied.com/html2dom/)
