Open Source for Open Source

AboutCode is a set of open source tools to discover and manage important information about your software. Our primary focus is to solve the problem of discovering, identifying, tracking and managing open source and third-party components used in your products, applications and systems. The AboutCode tools are designed to be modular so that a software development team can quickly implement a workflow tailored for its set of languages, technologies and tools.
