πŸ”– convert mode

1) Convert all sbom-info.yaml or oss-pkg-info.yaml in the path recursively.

$ fosslight_prechecker convert -p tests/

2) Result file example

oss-pkg-info.yaml

When writing a path in the yaml file, if it starts with a special character ({, } , [, ], &, *, #, ?, |, -, <, >, =, !, @), use double quotation marks ("").

πŸ” How it works

πŸ”– lint mode

  1. Find a OSS Package Information file.
    Check if at least one of the following files exists (case-free)
    • sbom-info.yaml (or .yml)
    • oss-pkg-info.yaml (or .yml)
    • requirement.txt
    • requirements.txt
    • package.json
    • pom.xml
    • build.gradle
    • Podfile.lock
    • Cartfile.resolved
    • pubspec.yaml
    • Package.resolved
    • go.mod
    • packages.config
    • package.assets.json
    • oss-package.info
    • File started with "MODULE_LICENSE_ "
  2. Run fsfe-reuse lint
    2-1. When running on a project basis.
    • If there is no ./reuse/dep5 file in the Root Path, it is created.
    • If it already exists, copy it to bk file and append the default config value to the existing dep file.
    • By creating dep5 files, exclude binary or .json, venv /, node_modules/,. */ from reuse.
    • Run fsfe-reuse lint (If the OSS Package Information file exists, the list of missing license files is not printed.)
    • Recover to existing dep5-related file if it originally existed, delete if it doesn't exist.

    2-2. When executing in file unit

    • Print the copyright text and license text extraction by file.
    • However, if the file does not exist or the file is binary or .json, copyright text and license text are not printed.
  3. Print the execution result and save it in xml format.

πŸ”– convert mode

  1. Check if there is an OSS Package Information or FOSSLight Report file.
  1. Convert sbom-info.yaml or oss-pkg-info.yaml file to FOSSLight Report
    2-1. When running on a project basis.
    • Convert all files in the path (oss-pkg-info.yaml file -> fosslight_report.xlsx)

    2-2. When running in file unit

    • Convert the input yaml file
    • However, if an output file name is specified with -o, a result file is created with that name.

πŸ”– add mode

  1. Confirm to add copyright and license to missing file
  2. Add copyright and license to missing file(s) using -c and -l option
    • Print file list that both has copyright and license(excluded from Adding)
    • Add input copyright and license to missing file(s) using -c and -l option
