Count Lines of Code is an application included in the standard Ubuntu repositories that counts the lines of code separated by programming language.

It is able to separate out blank lines, comment lines, and actual code lines in the count. It’s quick and easy to use for giving a quick statistic on any given code repository.

To count lines of code in the current directory,

cloc .

An example from my website repository:

1019 text files.
894 unique files.                                          
158 files ignored.
