    Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub for a whopping 7.5 billion USD is not going well with many of GitHub’s users.

So, if you are one of those GitHub users or just someone who is shopping around to see what the market has to offer, here are the 7 best GitHub alternatives that you should check out in 2019.

  2. Bitbucket is a free code hosting site for Mercurial and Git. Manage your development with a hosted wiki, issue tracker and source code.
    Bitbucket is more than just Git code management. It gives teams one place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test, and deploy. I love that you can connect Bitbucket with project management software such as JIRA or Trello. This allows you to easily manage big projects and make sure that the work is done on time. It also connects with all your favorite tools like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Script Runner, and more. If you are looking for a great altenrative to GitHub which also happens to be free, you should definitely check out Bitbucket.

    Like Sourceforge, this means your Projects need unique titles which have not been used before by another project. CodePlex gives you the option of either Git, Mercurial or Team Foundation Server (TFS) as your Version Control. All CodePlex projects are private for a maximum duration of 30 days, after which they will be removed if not made public before the expiration date. You do not need to pay to use any CodePlex feature and neither does CodePlex set a cap on the number of users contributing to a project.
