AboutCode Project Overview

The primary current AboutCode projects are:

  • ScanCode Toolkit: is a code scanning “engine” and command-line tool to detect the provenance and license of code and its dependencies. ScanCode TK is a command-line tool with many scanning options and output formats (JSON, HTML, CSV or SPDX). ScanCode detects licenses, copyrights, package manifests and more in both source code and binary files. There is already a large set of pre- and post-plugins and you can also create your own plugins.

  • ScanCode.io: is a Cloud application server that automates Software Composition Analysis with pipelines. ScanCode.io has standard pipelines for Docker and VM images, root filesystems and packages. ScanCode.io organizes these complex code analyses as scripted pipelines and stores the results in its database for automated code analysis.
