VersionEye License Check
This shell script is build for developers to quickly check on their dev. machines if a project dependency is violating the License Whitelist. To use this script you need these:
- jq, a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor. Available for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
- An API Key from VersionEye.
- A default License Whitelist on VersionEye.
Please make sure that you created a License Whitelist on VersionEye and that you marked one as default. The default Whitelist gets assinged automatically to every new created project.
On VersionEye Enterprise the admin has to do this.
Open the script and replace
<YOUR_SECRET_API_KEY> in line 4 with your actual API KEY. You can get it from here. If you are using VersionEye Enterprise please adjust the
VERSIONEYE_SERVER path in line 3.
#!/bin/bash VERSIONEYE_SERVER=https://www.versioneye.com API_KEY=<YOUR_SECRET_API_KEY>
Simply run the script in the command line with any project file as first parameter.
> ./versioneye_license_check.sh <PROJECT_FILE>
> ./versioneye_license_check.sh Gemfile
That will upload the
Gemfile to the VersionEye API and check the dependencies against the default license whitelist. The output will look similar to this.
In the output you can see how many dependencies are violating the license whitelist. It should be always 0. In this example it is 1. In that case you can use the Web Interface to digg deeper. After the check the project on the VersionEye Server gets deleted immediately.
Currently VersionEye supports 11 package managers. You can throw any of this project files against the VersionEye API.
For Maven multi module projects (reactor builds) please use the VersionEye Maven Plugin.
