My new code imports libraries from other sources (pandas,tqdm,plotly to name the big ones). Do I need to reference them in my LICENSE.md?

Or is it enough to simply mention them in the README.md?

  • What licenses are they? Apr 13, 2020 at 8:58
  • Do you distribute the libraries as well? Then in that case you need to abide by any license requirements of those.

  • @Shimmy the licenses for small libraries are all MIT or related Apr 14, 2020 at 15:54
  • @Brandin I have a requirements.txt file for people to run the pip command to install libs, that way its the user that is distributing the library right? Apr 14, 2020 at 15:55
  • @Thomas, the library is GNUv2 (PostGIS). Apr 15, 2020 at 7:31
