ClearlyNoticed Action - OSS atrribution file generator

Maintain a NOTICE file based on your package-lock.json using GitHub Actions!

Uses https://www.npmjs.com/package/tiny-attribution-generator (chive) for rendering and https://clearlydefined.io for data

Options

  • custom NOTICE_TEMPLATE you check in to the root or .github folder
  • argument for filename to use (--filename). Defaults to NOTICE
  • argument for including devDependencies (--includeDev). Defaults to excluded

How it works

  1. Include this Action in your workflow
  2. When the Action runs, a pull request will be created with your new NOTICE file
  3. Merge the pull request and delete the branch
  4. As your dependencies evolve, new pull requests get opened with the changes

add ./github/main.workflow to your repo

workflow "My Workflow" {
  on = "push"
  resolves = ["ClearlyNoticed"]
}

action "ClearlyNoticed" {
  uses = "dabutvin/chive-action@master"
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]
}

with custom file name argument

action "ClearlyNoticed" {
  uses = "dabutvin/chive-action@master"
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]
  args = "--filename=MyNotices.md"
}

include devDependencies in notices

action "ClearlyNoticed" {
  uses = "dabutvin/chive-action@master"
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]
  args = "--includeDev=true"
}

This is an example of a custom template you could use. It uses a handlebars template.
