Getting started

Socket protects your most critical apps from supply chain attacks. We provide a couple of different ways in which this protection can be applied:

The GitHub App

The easiest and most powerful approach we have is Socket for GitHub. You simply install that to your repositories and it will start running checks on eg. PR:s right away and provide feedback to you.


You can of course be able to interact with us through the Socket CLI. This is especially useful for those of you who are not using GitHub or those of you who want more control over how you interact with Socket than what our GitHub App give.


Our brand new Socket REST API enables you to make use of our feature set in a more customized approach that you yourself (or some very smart friend of yours or in the community) tailor for your very own needs. As easy? Nope. Taste just as good? Yep, or even better if you add that secret spice of yours to it.
