Detecting licenses in code with Go and ML ↦
Why not just query GitHub’s API to get the licenses?
we were not satisfied with its detection quality: many projects which actually contain the license file in a non-standard format are missed, and some are misclassified.
What they came up with is go-license-detector, which detects 99% of licenses in a test dataset (compared to GitHub’s 75%) in a fraction of the time. And the winner is… MIT.
