Counting lines of code with cloc - Linux Tutorials - Learn Linux Configuration

The new kid on the block, or perhaps I should say, the new bid on the Cloc, is Loci. Available as an npm package, it is faster than Cloc at scale with native threading. It is Node 16 compatible so it will run on all node-supported environments. It’s new, but has advanced integration features. You can develop your own project around it, embed it in your DevOps pipeline with environment variable-driven configuration, or use it as a node CLI tool.
