Welcome to FOSSA
Open source is your most critical software supplier. In the average modern software product, over 80% of the source code shipped is derived from open source software. Over 90% of the world uses internet browsers powered by open source. The world's most popular consumer, enterprise, and mobile operating systems are all open source. If you're using software, open source is your critical supplier.
FOSSA helps you manage your open source components. We perform dynamic & static build analyses on your code to help your team understand the open source components you depend on and to stay compliant with software licenses. By enabling open source, we help development teams increase development velocity and decrease risk.
In this guide, you'll find everything you need to set up FOSSA for your team.
Check out our Getting Started guide to get your first project imported, monitored, and compliant in 5 minutes.
This guide covers:
- Importing your first project
- Running your first analysis
- Creating a release report
- Setting up automated analyses
FOSSA helps you manage your dependency tracking and license compliance on autopilot. Once a project has been set up, it stays protected at every commit.
We also host a monthly Open Source Happy Hour in San Francisco. Come join us for beer, lightning talks, and networking! You can RSVP at meetup.fossa.io.
