Understanding the "overrides"

Ignoring a package

Sometimes, you may have an "internal" module which you/your team developed, or a module where you've arranged a special license with the owner. These wouldn't belong in your license attributions, so you can ignore them by creating an overrides.json file like so:

{
  "signaling-agent": {
      "ignore": true 
  }
}

Changing the properties of package in the attribution file only

Other times, you may need to supply your own text for the purpose of the attribution/credits. You have full control of this in the overrides.json file as well:

{
  "some-package": {
    "name": "some-other-package-name",
    "version": "1.0.0-someotherversion",
    "authors": "some person",
    "url": "https://thatwebsite.com/since/their/original/link/was/broken",
    "license": "MIT",
    "licenseText": "you can even override the license text in case the original contents of the LICENSE file were wrong for some reason"
  }
}

Running on CI

For a large project with multiple maintainers you will probably want to run this on your CI build server, so that the attributions are always up to date.
