Supported languages and tools

For each supported programming language, Codacy generally provides Static Analysis, Code Duplication, Code Complexity, and Test Coverage.

The table below lists all programming languages currently supported by Codacy and the corresponding tools that Codacy uses to analyze your source code. For Test Coverage, see the coverage report formats that Codacy supports.
