Table of contents

Installation

LicenseAdapter is distributed via JCenter:

dependencies {
  implementation 'net.yslibrary.licenseadapter:licenseadapter:LATEST_LIBRARY_VERSION'
}

Usage

// Create list of libraries
List<Library> libraries = new ArrayList<>();

// Add libraries that are hosted on GitHub with an Apache v2 license.
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubApacheV2("realm/realm-java"));
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubApacheV2("square/retrofit"));

// BSD license
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubBSD("bumptech/glide"));

// MIT license
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubMIT("jhy/jsoup"));

// Library that is hosted on GitHub, but does not provide license text.
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHub("gabrielemariotti/changeloglib", Licenses.LICENSE_APACHE_V2));

// Library that is not hosted on GitHub.
libraries.add(Licenses.noContent("Android SDK", "Google Inc.", "https://developer.android.com/sdk/terms.html"));

// Library that does not have their license online
libraries.add(Licenses.noLink("Google Play Services", "Google Inc.", GoogleApiAvailability.getInstance().getOpenSourceSoftwareLicenseInfo(this)));

// These 2 licenses are on a branch name other than master
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubApacheV2("ReactiveX/RxAndroid", "2.x/" + Licenses.FILE_AUTO));
libraries.add(Licenses.fromGitHubApacheV2("ReactiveX/RxJava", "2.x/" + Licenses.FILE_AUTO));

// Create and display the adapter
RecyclerView rv = findViewById(R.id.list);
rv.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(this));
rv.setAdapter(new LicenseAdapter(libraries)); // It's that simple!

Don't forget to add the android.permission.INTERNET permission to your manifest.
