    GitHub is the most mainstream, Gitlab has the most features and is selfhostable, Gitea has fewer features, but is more lightweight for selfhosting. Both Gitlab and Gitea are also working on federation.

    I don’t know about the others.

    There is one thing that makes gitlab 100x better than GitHub, and that is that gitlab is developed on gitlab. You can open an issue on the repository and it is picked up like any other issue. No such thing like a GitHub/GitHub repository. I have no clue where to go when something is not to my liking there

    Github has the most visibility, codeberg has the best community features for stripping away some of Microsoft’s hegemony over open source, and gitlab is flat and simple the nicest one to use

    It’s a matter of opinion and lots of it depends on your preferences.

    Github: Where most developers are and therefore has the best network effect. Easy for new contributors. Gitlab: Got some traction after Microsoft bought Github, but is very similar, just not as popular. Codeberg: Completely open source (I believe) it’s the option with most respect for your privacy. Lacks the network effect until fediverse integration is complete, which I do believe the platform is working on. Cgit: A very simple git repository viewer. You can’t do anything from it, except see the repository. Some big projects use this, like the kernel.

    There are more options, but some gets very specific after this.

    Honestly, don’t like any of them. Github is closed-source and lacks so many features compared to Gitlab. Gitlab, though opensource, makes you pay for every useful feature and is not fun to host. Gitea is an opensource clone of Github that also lacks Gitlab’s features. SourceHut is unusable for me (mailing lists and git send-mail? seriously?). Never used BitBucket and radicle (decentralised sourceforge) is still under heavy development with no CI.

    Optimal would be something with gitlab’s features, decentralised, FLOSS, and unlocked when self-hosted. Maybe radicle will get there. They seem to be dog-fooding their solution and about a year ago were planning on CI. No idea where their roadmap disappeared to.

      This!! Also why the heck they changed their website to be so much lamer and slightly broken on mobile, I still don’t understand.

      What do you think of Onedev? I rember it selling itself as the GitLab alternative, but I haven’t tried since I can’t self-host. Though checking it out again quickly right now, I’m very wary of it since it turned source-available with another “Enterprise” plan, uhhh

        What do you think of Onedev?

        Wow, that actually looks quite interesting! The “source-available” license is indeed troublesome 🤔 They could pull a gitlab and lock a bunch of their stuff behind payment, but who knows. I’ll also wait with testing it for now. But it’s in my bookmarks!

        Thanks

    I personally use codeberg but I have to use github to send PR to some project.

    Github is the industry standard. It’s easy to use and is packed with features, it’s also quite flexible in how much it provides for free.

    Codeberg is a github clone but open source and nonprofit. People are weary that github is owned by Microsoft so if you’re a privacy conscious person that likes open source, it’s a good option.

    I’ve never used Gitlab but from what I’ve heard it’s more enterprise oriented, focused on providing solutions for companies rather than something simple for everyone. You can also self-host it if you want it on your own servers.

      I generally recommend GitTea if you need a nice simple Git server. Or … Just use GitHub and be done with it. Maybe GitLab if you cannot put company stuff on GitHub for some high security reasons.

    My favorite is SourceHut because it just works without taking forever to load. I also like the clear separation between projects, repositories, issue trackers, mailing lists and other components. And the fact that it doesn’t have pull requests, so there isn’t a billion unmaintained forks everywhere.

      So you like using mailing lists? I’ve never done that due to coming from game dev and we have large binaries, but I’ve always been curious. Isn’t it hard to keep things organized?

        I don’t maintain any popular projects so I don’t have personal experience, but many projects on SourceHut are developed using mailing lists (and outside SourceHut too, notably Linux) and they seem to be organized just fine.

    As a regular user who doesn’t do any dev work but likes to keep tabs on various projects, Gitlab all the way. It has an interface to track issues specific to a given version, giving you an easy way to gauge progress on upcoming releases and see what the holdups are. I’ve not found any kind of analog for that on GitHub unfortunately, but maybe I just haven’t looked in the right place

      Forgejo is a community run fork of Gitea, created after the restructuring of the Gitea business.

      What sort of hardware do you need to realistically host your own git instance? In this case, we’re talking about 1 user (me) with about 2GB’ worth of git repos.

        probably a 2GB 1core VPS is fine, of course more is better - faster for some stuff… Our Gitea instance run on a 4core 6GB VM…

    Gitlab should be best. Its FOSS (not their own instance gitlab.com), has a CI and a lot of thingd you may want. Even has a full VSCodium Webapp integrated, as thats basically a browser app
