Does Bitbucket show the repository language

Hello Team,

I want to know if bitbucket shows the languages used in the repository like how GitHub or GitLab shows?

If so, do they use GitHub Linguist?


Thanks in advance!

Hi, @bhuvaneshwari_kannan! Welcome to the community! 

Currently, Bitbucket doesn't have a feature that automatically detects the language based on the contents of the source code of a repository.

However, you can manually determine the language of the repository in the repo settings by following the next steps:

  • Access your repository and go to Repository Settings

  • Click on ADVANCED

  • Select the language you want to use under the "Language" field

Then this language will show for all users in the Source page of the repo, right-hand column, section titled Repository details

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,
