Our hearts go out to everyone who has been directly or indirectly impacted by the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are committed to doing what we can to help. As part of this, we’ve launched the following initiative:
Free Codacy Pro license for COVID-19 projects
If you are an individual or part of an organization contributing to a COVID-19 related project we’re offering a free Codacy Pro license, our cloud static analysis tool, available for GitHub, Bitbucket and GitLab users. We encourage you to incorporate Codacy into your project(s) to help ensure code quality, save time, lower costs, reduce security vulnerabilities and work across tools, technologies and locations.
