Integration with sbt-header

If you use sbt-header for creating/updating your file headers according to your project’s license you can benefit from our sbt-github-header module which pre-fills header template with downloaded Github values. To use it, just add the following line to your plugins.sbt file

addSbtPlugin("com.alejandrohdezma" % "sbt-github-header" % "0.8.1")

NOTE

Important! So we don’t force a version of sbt-header, it is requested as a Provided dependency so you’ll need to provide your own version of sbt-header.


What does this integration do?

Populates the headerLicense setting from sbt-header with values extracted from Github by SbtGithubPlugin:

  • Year: The information stored in yearRange.
  • Copyright Owner: The information stored in copyrightOwner, provided by the own integration plugin. Defaults to organizationName value if there is no value for organizationHomepage or organizationName <organizationHomepage> if there is.

The headerLicenseStyle setting from the HeaderPlugin will be used to set the style of the autogenerated headers.

Example

For example, given a project with:

  • an Apache-2.0 license…
  • given that the repository start year is 2019…
  • that the organization name is Alejandro Hernández…
  • and the organization homepage is https://github.com/alejandrohdezma

The following headers will be added to every file:
