Generic (third party)
A generic scanner for know third party libraries in supported languages.
This scanner can be used when a language is supported by the platform but there's no immediate support for the specific manifest file or tool. In this situation, a text file can be created where dependencies are listed, and then any Meterian CLI can be subsequently used to generate a standard report, as if it was a supported codebase. The scanner is normally disabled and you will need to the parameter
--scan-third-partyto activate it.
The scanner will look into any folder or subfolders containing a file that starts with
third-party-dependency, and will pick them up, processing them as if they were normal manifest files.
This is a sample file,
# the name of the project (optional)
# the version of the project (optional)
# a list of licenses of the project (optional)
# all dependencies used in this project in the format name/version, one by each line
This analyser cannot work remotely.
