AWS CodeCommit vs GitBucket: What are the differences?
AWS CodeCommit: Fully-managed source control service that makes it easy for companies to host secure and highly scalable private Git repositories. CodeCommit eliminates the need to operate your own source control system or worry about scaling its infrastructure. You can use CodeCommit to securely store anything from source code to binaries, and it works seamlessly with your existing Git tools; GitBucket: The easily installable Github clone powered by Scala. GitBucket provides a Github-like UI and features such as Git repository hosting via HTTP and SSH, repository viewer, issues, wiki and pull request.
AWS CodeCommit and GitBucket belong to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by AWS CodeCommit are:
- Access Control
On the other hand, GitBucket provides the following key features:
- Public / Private Git repository (http and ssh access)
- Repository viewer and online file editing
- Repository search (Code and Issues)
"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeCommit over the competitors, whereas "Self hosted" was stated as the key factor in picking GitBucket.
GitBucket is an open source tool with 7.73K GitHub stars and 1.06K GitHub forks. Here's a link to GitBucket's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, AWS CodeCommit has a broader approval, being mentioned in 25 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to GitBucket, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

The pull requests are only merged by FF what makes all the merges hard to manage. The IAM configuration is very awkward and the unavailability to add git hooks to prevent commits to be made into the server makes this tool not much usable for a software development company.
A great, easy and powerful git repository.
Doing thinks well, and fast growing
I use CodeCommit for projects that require a tighter integration with the AWS ecosystem.
Otherwise, my default source control system as a service of choice is: GitHub.
