Markdown License Badges for your Project

Markdown License badges

Collection of License badges for your Project's README file.
This list includes the most common open source and open data licenses.
Easily copy and paste the code under the badges into your Markdown files.

Notes

  • The badges do not fully replace the license informations for your projects, they are only emblems for the README, that the user can see the License at first glance.

Translations: (No guarantee that the translations are up-to-date)

Further informations:

  • Badges are made with Shields.io.
  • Github has a new autodetection for LICENSE files, which shows the license at the repo overview
  • Shields.io has autogenerated license badges: https://img.shields.io/github/license/<Github-Username>/<Repository>
  • Really nice: https://choosealicense.com/ (if you are unsure, which license to choose)
