Know what licenses you ship

Understanding the licenses of the third party code you use in your software ensures you can better protect against prohibitive licenses. We recognize the importance of this, so bitHound will now provide license information for project's dependencies.

You can see all of your licenses, at a glance, on your project dashboard and on the dependency view.

Dependencies

From there, you can cross reference against any policies you may have in place for the disallowance of certain licenses. For some projects, bitHound may not have yet determined a license, so we encourage you to click through on those packages to kick off analysis that will find it.
