The Open Source Initiative API is used to build applications that are "license aware" which means that any business can determine if the license is open source or not. This API stores a list of common identifiers of services which allows a user to take a Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) ID, and know if it is approved by calling the Open Source Initiative API. This API returns specific information about a license such as if it is obsolete, popular or OSI Approved.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
