GitHub Enterprise uses the open source Linguist library to determine file languages for syntax highlighting and repository statistics. Some files are hard to identify, and sometimes projects contain more library and vendor files than their primary code.

If you're receiving erroneous results, please consult the Linguist troubleshooting guide for help.

Language statistics will update after you push changes to your default branch (which is usually master).

Markup rendering

Markup languages are rendered to HTML and displayed inline using our open-source Markup library.

At this time, we are not accepting new markup languages to show within GitHub Enterprise. However, we do actively maintain our current markup languages. If you see a problem, please create an issue.
