I am building my Angular app with Angular CLI and it generates 3rdpartylicenses.txt when I execute a production build. The file is deployed to the server and therefore is published under /3rdpartylicenses.txt.

I would like to know whether I should include an explicit link to /3rdpartylicenses.txt into somewhere easily recognizable to the app users. In angular.io, for example, I cannot find any link to https://angular.io/3rdpartylicenses.txt where they publish OSS licenses just like I do in my app.


If you have an "About" page or some other location where you provide the contact and license information for your app itself I would highly suggest putting a link to the 3rdpartylicenses.txt there. This is a common location for license information and is generally where people will look for it.
