Static code analysis company DeepCode announced the DeepCode plugin for IntelliJ, PyCharm, and WebStorm, designed to find bugs and critical vulnerabilities in code. The plugin comes with Java, C/C++, Python, JavaScript and TypeScript support. DeepCode is also working on adding CLion support.

According to the company, it uses a new symbolic AI technique called Ontology to process hundreds of millions of commits in open source software projects and learns how to find serious coding issues. The platform also determines the intent of the code and not only the syntax mistakes.
