Supported languages and tools

For each supported programming language, Codacy generally provides:

  • Static Analysis
  • Code Duplication
  • Code Complexity
  • Test Coverage

The table below lists all programming languages that Codacy supports and the corresponding tools that Codacy uses to analyze your source code. Besides this, Codacy uses cloc to calculate the source lines of code for all supported languages, and supports multiple test coverage report formats.
