A way to get value out of composed generator? #1708

I'd like to send my users to generator-license to let them choose a license, but I need to know that choice after it runs to put it in the project metadata file I generate. Is there an API for getting values out of subgenerators? Can there be?

You could read it from the package.json file after the generator-license run.

There's no API to pass data outside a composed generator. The system isn't design to allow this kind of interactions.

generator-license does not emit a package.json, nor do I want it to. I'm trying to scaffold a Python project. Thank you for the answer regardless!
