  • Beware Offers of “Help” with Your Projects
    This reminds me of Gogs [0], where the original author refused a lot of good ideas and improvements, eventually leading to a fork [1] that's now a lot more popular and active than the original. [0] [1] - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Incident with Issues and Pull Requests
    Yes, we do this using on a private server. Firewall, backups and a replica running for most projects. Github is only used when it's required by a stakeholder. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Let's Make Sure GitHub Doesn't Become the Only Option
    There's a number of places out there, some of which also support alternatives to Git itself. By no means a complete list and in no particular order: GitLab - Sourcehut - Codeberg - Launchpad - Debian Salsa - Pagure - For self hsoted options, there's these below... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • If you're on DSM 6 and still waiting for an update on the GitLab package, don't bother
    And if you need GitLab (for runner, etc...) then it's not too bad to run in Docker. But if anyone is looking for a somewhat simpler git solution, gitea is pretty great. Source: about 1 year ago
  • OpenBSD Upgrade 7.2 to 7.3
    Check: Configuration and syntax changes and Special packages. The latter includes changes on PostgreSQL, Python and Gitea. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • How do you stay "online"?
    Personally, I run a Gitea server as our enterprise GitHub doesn't allow personal repos. This is run on an in-office desktop. I have a laptop which I use to WFH, and the desktop is my main hub. I connect to the desktop with Visual Studio Code SSH server, so even compiling is done remotely. So my office PC being always on is critical even ignoring the self-hosted Git client.

    Something like ? Source: over 1 year ago
  • How would I go about doing *free* remotely hosted version control with git and binary files? Or is there an alternative?
    I use gitea (free) on my own server (5€/month). If you don't mind a bit sysadmin stuff setting it up and/or want full control over your data, it might be worth it. Source: over 1 year ago
  • This is my BIGGEST problem coding - can you help me?

    GitHub is Microsoft's privately owned service that provides hosting and other features for Git repositories. There are other services which provide comparable services: GitLab, BitBucket.. You can also self-host such a service (Gogs, Gitea..). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Just finished migrating my old tower servers to a Kubernetes cluster on my new rack!
    For general development, I still run old server licenses of Atlassian Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Bamboo. Though I am planning on migrating to Gitea, Woodpecker, Tiaga, and Bookstack eventually. Or the Jetbrains suite. Not sure yet. For my CI pipeline, I plan to use Act in my runners to enable me to use GitHub actions locally. Source: over 1 year ago

  • Suggestions to a home server on a raspberry pi
    Look into for a lighter option or gitlab to have CI too. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Private Repository, custom links?
    There's really no need to write your own git frontend just for that. It seems like you already have a running webserver. Check out cgit or gitea, both are small and easy to setup, and should allow short repo URLs like git clone Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Seeking free self hosted develops for git, planning & CI a bonus
    Someone suggested looking at for git hosting and Drone CI: - no idea how this looks the pipeline ci yaml looks super easy to get started with. Source: almost 2 years ago

You can see a similar features in GitHub’s smaller competition Codeberg, GitLab, BitBucket, and Gitea.
