Code Sight

Enterprise Code Search

Download Black Duck Code Sight DatasheetBlack Duck® Code Sight™ is a highly scalable, syntax-specific enterprise source code search engine that enables you to find, understand and reuse internal code by creating an index from hundreds of repositories across your enterprise. Access to a fast, simple means of code search can:

  • Provide you with visibility into internal components that you can explore for potential reuse
  • Allow you to view first-hand examples of how another developer created solutions to challenging or complex code issues
  • Help you learn how to use an API
  • Encourage enterprise-wide reuse and standardization, reducing the risk associated with the introduction of multiple versions of existing components


  • Syntax-specific search for 43 languages, including class, method, interface and enumeration definitions
  • Filter results by languages and projects
  • Code matches are clearly highlighted
  • Pre-built SCM adapters for leading SCM systems
  • Plug-ins for Eclipse, Visual Studio, Firefox and Chrome
  • With custom configuration, Code Sight scales to billions of lines of code, e.g. it powers Ohloh Code which catalogs over 10 billion lines of code
  • Runs on Linux and Windows
