Hi Jack,

Thank you for the kind suggestion, very appreciated. I'd just ask to wait some weeks before the tool is listed. Some defects were reported that I'd like to get sorted before more users run the software.

Will get back to this message as soon as possible.

With kind regards,
Nuno Brito

This is great news. I would like to list the tool on the SPDX website.
If you agree here is a link to the information I need. You can email it
to me direct and I can post it on the business team list if you do not
have access.

best regards,

Dear SPDX group,

I'd like to announce the availability of a new SPDX editor/viewer.


- Create an SPDX document from:
-- a source code folder on disk
-- a zipped file on the network

- User interface:
-- Desktop UI
-- Access from a web browser

- Java based (tested under Windows and Linux)
- Tree navigation of files and folders
- Search features (name, hash, similar files)
- Basic SPDX editing features
- Metrics calculation (LOC, size, number of files)
- Basic license detection (detects GPL, LGPL, ...) headers in source
- Learning function (supports plugins, new licenses, ...)

The tool is freeware, code is released under the open source EUPL.

These are the first editions, many defects are present that we'll be
addressing in the upcoming months. If you have any requests or would
like to report a defect, just write us back an email.

At the moment only the tag/value format is supported. On our context
there wasn't much demand for supporting the XML version. An SPDX
document generated by our tool writes more information that what the
standard prescribes. For example, we include the hashes for other
algorithms because they help us finding trails of specific files across
the web.

This tool is useful if you need a quick way to visually generate an
SPDX document from a set of files on your disk. We were already
developing this kind of tools in the past for forensic analysis
purposes, moved recently to embrace the SPDX format.
