This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Writing secure code is as important as ever, but it's only one of the many things developers have to prioritize. LGTM provides both a safety net and a means to benefit from a knowledge base of secure coding practices. It is a static code analysis tool with a focus on security that is backed by a (partially open-source) catalog of secure coding rules. The rules are implemented as queries over your codebase in the CodeQL query language. It can be used to integrate white-box security checks into your CD pipelines for Java, Go, JavaScript, Python, C# and C/C++. LGTM and CodeQL are part of the Github Security Lab.
