Simple donationware license?

(1/1)

petersphilo:
Hello all,
i'd like to publish some software as donationware..
i'm trying to find a sort of 'boilerplate' license i can use, could anyone point me in the right direction?
Thank you!

wraith808:
When you say 'donationware', is it a pay what you want (or nothing)? Or is there a minimum set.

If the latter, it's not donationware. If so, you can just use any free license and add that donations are welcomed but not required.

petersphilo:
Thank you for your answer!
Definitely the former..
Here's what i'm thinking of putting in the code, along with a donate button (the 'software' is a php module for HumHub - an open source social network):

/**

PS: note that this is only visible to administrators, so only they would see the donate button..
