Display all the librarys licence used in your application. Enjoy !

Cocoapods version Cocoapods plateform Prs welcome


Display a screen with all licences used in your application can be painful to maintain. OpenSourceController was built to respond to this problem. OpenSourceController is a simple parser to display the licences which are used in your application.



  • Display tableView with licences used in your app
  • Download licence from an URL


  • Xcode 11
  • iOS 9.0+ target deployment
  • Swift 3, Swift 4 or Swift 5.1 project


  • Import the library :
import OpenSourceController
  • Display the controller :
// Create controller 
let openSourceVC = OpenSourceController()

// Init with LicenceFile object 
openSourceVC.licences = [LicenceFile(title: "FacebookImagePicker", 
                        url: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/terflogag/FacebookImagePicker/master/LICENSE"),
                        LicenceFile(title: "JSQMessagesViewController", 
                        url: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jessesquires/JSQMessagesViewController/develop/LICENSE")]

// Present controller 
openSourceVC.presentOpenSourceController(from: self)

// OR push the controller if the source controller is embeded in navigation controller
openSourceVC.pushOpenSourceController(from: self)

With SwiftUI :

struct OpenSourceView: UIViewControllerRepresentable {
    @available(iOS 13, *)
    public func updateUIViewController(_ uiViewController: OpenSourceViewController, context: UIViewControllerRepresentableContext<OpenSourceView>) {
    @available(iOS 13, *)
    public func makeUIViewController(context: UIViewControllerRepresentableContext<OpenSourceView>) -> OpenSourceViewController {
        let openSourceVC = OpenSourceViewController(licences:
            [LicenceFile(title: "FacebookImagePicker",
                         url: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/terflogag/FacebookImagePicker/master/LICENSE"),
             LicenceFile(title: "JSQMessagesViewController",
                         url: "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jessesquires/JSQMessagesViewController/develop/LICENSE")],
                                                    showCloseButton: true,
                                                    configuration: OpenSourceControllerConfig(),
                                                    licenceLoader: LicenceLoader())
        return openSourceVC


You can apply some customisation. To do it you can use the OpenSourceControllerConfig structure like this :

// Navigation bar title 
openSourceVC.config.title = "MyCustomTitle"

// Close button color 
openSourceVC.config.uiConfig.closeButtonColor = UIColor.white

// BackgroundColor 
openSourceVC.config.uiConfig.backgroundColor = UIColor.red.withAlphaComponent(0.6)

// Licence text color  
openSourceVC.config.uiConfig.licenceTextColor = UIColor.white

// Navigation bar title color
openSourceVC.config.uiConfig.titleColor = UIColor.white

// Licence cell background color 
openSourceVC.config.uiConfig.licenceBackgroundColor = UIColor.red

// Verbose mode 
openSourceVC.config.verbose = true


OpenSourceController is currently write in english. If you need translation for the permission popup (or whatever thing), just add this line in your localized file :

"Unable to load this licence." = "<your_translation>";
