The easiest way to get started is with your open source repos. Go to, and select Build with GitHub and watch your profile build.

For closed source repos, you will need to use this app. If you already created an account using GitHub, you would have received an email with credentials for the app. If not, You will need a new account, which you can get at

The app looks at repos locally on your machine, and then sends stats to The best way to verify is to look at the code. Protobuf messages declared in src/main/proto/sourcerer.proto is a good start as it describes the client-server protocol. The Sourcerer app does NOT upload source code anywhere, and it NEVER will.


How can I process private repos?

We process only public repos using GitHub OAuth. To process private repos you need to run sourcerer app locally. See Get started for instructions. Sourcerer app sends only statistical information to our servers and never sends code.

Why do you need GitHub permissions?

We use emails to identify commit authorship, read orgs access to get list of public repositories that you've contributed to. You also need to grant access to read this public information from an organization.

Other questions



We love contributions! Check out the Contribution guide for more information. Simplest and really helpful for the community would be contribution meta information to our supported libraries list. If you an author of a library you show definitely add yours to the list or you can help to someone whose work you use.
