Automated license checking for rust.
cargo lichking is a Cargo
subcommand that checks licensing information for dependencies.
Liches are not lawyers, the information output from this tool is provided as a hint to where you may need to look for licensing issues but in no way represents legal advice or guarantees correctness. The tool relies at a minimum on package metadata containing correct licensing information, this is not guaranteed so for real license checking it's necessary to verify all dependencies manually.
To install simply run
cargo install cargo-lichking; unless you're using a homebrew installed
copy of openssl, then "simply" run:
OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl` \ OPENSSL_LIB_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl`/lib \ OPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl`/include \ cargo install cargo-lichking
To get a list of all your (transitive) dependencies licenses run
cargo lichking list. To check license compatibility based off this License Slide by David
A. Wheeler run
cargo lichking check.

If building on OS X with a
homebrew installed copy of OpenSSL you'll need to
specify where this is to enable building
libssh2-sys. Use something like:
OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl` \ OPENSSL_LIB_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl`/lib \ OPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=`brew --prefix openssl`/include \ cargo build
When running via
cargo run you'll need to provide an initial
argument to simulate running as a cargo subcommand, e.g.
cargo run -- lichking check.
