Generate open source software and license overview


#1

Hi there,

What is the best way to generate an overview of the different open source software (oss) components and its corresponding licenses that come with an app built using the ionic framework? I am only interested in those oss components that are actually contained in a distributable version of an iOS and Android app built using ionic.

Having built an app for iOS using the ionic framework, I have seen in Xcode that the MainViewController.m for example is licensed under the Apache License 2.0 (whereas ionic itself is licensed under the MIT license). There are many more other oss components used by ionic. Would it be a valid way to scan all files contained in my Xcode project to generate a complete list of the oss components contained along with their corresponding licenses? Are there any other, easier ways?

Thanks for your support!
