LicensePlist is a command-line tool that automatically generates a Plist of all your dependencies, including files added manually(specified by YAML config file) or using Carthage or CocoaPods. All these licenses then show up in the Settings app.

Flow

Demo

App Setting Root | License List | License Detail --- | --- | --- | |

Usage

  1. On the directory same as Cartfile or Pods, simply execute license-plist.
  2. com.mono0926.LicensePlist.Output directory will be generated.
  3. Move the files in the output directory into your app's Settings.bundle.
Settings.bundle
├── Root.plist
├── com.mono0926.LicensePlist
│   ├── APIKit.plist
│   ├── Alamofire.plist
│   └── EditDistance.plist
├── com.mono0926.LicensePlist.plist

Options

You can see options by license-plist --help.

--cartfile-path

  • Default: Cartfile

--pods-path

  • Default: Pods

--output-path

  • Default: com.mono0926.LicensePlist.Output
  • Recommended: --output-path YOUR_PRODUCT_DIR/Settings.bundle

--github-token

  • Default: None.
  • LicensePlist uses GitHub API, so sometimes API limit error occures. You can avoid it by using github-token .
  • You can generate token here
    • repo scope is needed.

--config-path

  • Default: license_plist.yml
  • You can specify GitHub libraries(introduced by hand) and excluded libraries

--force

  • Default: false
  • LicensePlist saves latest result summary, so if there are no changes, the program iterrupts.
    • In this case, excecution time is less than 100ms for the most case, so you can run LicensePlist at Run Script Phase every time 🎉
  • You can run all the way anyway, by using --force flag.

--add-version-numbers

  • Default: false
  • When the library name is SomeLibrary, by adding --add-version-numbers flag, the name will be changed to SomeLibrary (X.Y.Z).
    • X.Y.Z is parsed from CocoaPods and Cartfile information, and GitHub libraries specified at Config YAML also support this flag.
License list with versions

--suppress-opening-directory

  • Default: false
  • Only when the files are created or updated, the terminal or the finder opens. By adding --suppress-opening-directory flag, this behavior is suppressed.

Integrate into build

Add a Run Script Phase to Build Phases:

if [ $CONFIGURATION = "Debug" ]; then
/usr/local/bin/license-plist --output-path $PRODUCT_NAME/Settings.bundle --github-token YOUR_GITHUB_TOKEN
fi
