BinTray vs Gogs: What are the differences?
Developers describe BinTray as "Deploy jar and binary files to a public server. Easy integration with Maven, Gradle, Yum and Apt". Bintray offers developers the fastest way to publish and consume OSS software releases. With Bintray's full self-service platform developers have full control over their published software and how it is distributed to the world. On the other hand, Gogs is detailed as "A self-hosted Git service written in Go". The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest and most painless way to set up a self-hosted Git service. With Go, this can be done in independent binary distribution across ALL platforms that Go supports, including Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
BinTray and Gogs belong to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by BinTray are:
- One place for all your Java, Yum and Apt packages
- Use smart REST API to retrieve and search for binaries
- Easy integration with Maven, Gradle, Yum and Apt
On the other hand, Gogs provides the following key features:
- Activity timeline
- SSH/HTTP(S) protocol support
- SMTP/LDAP/reverse proxy authentication support
"Free for opensource packages" is the primary reason why developers consider BinTray over the competitors, whereas "Self-hosted github like service" was stated as the key factor in picking Gogs.
Gogs is an open source tool with 30.8K GitHub stars and 3.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gogs's open source repository on GitHub.
GameDuell, Write.as, and OSInet are some of the popular companies that use Gogs, whereas BinTray is used by BUX, Forerunner Games, and Notify-e. Gogs has a broader approval, being mentioned in 9 company stacks & 10 developers stacks; compared to BinTray, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

I installed Gogs after a few repos I planned to use on GitHub disappeared without explanation, and after Microsoft's acquisition of same, it made me think about the over-centralization of community-developed software. A self-hosted solution that enables easy point-and-click mirroring of important repositories for my projects, both in-house and 3rd-party, ensures I won't be bitten by upstream catastrophes. (So far, Microsoft's stewardship has been fine, but always be prepared). It's also a very nice way to host one's own private repos before they're ready for prime-time on github.
Gogs is written in Go and is easy to install and configure, much more so than GitLab. The only major feature I wish it had is an integrated code review tool, but the web plugin hypothes.is https://stackshare.io/hypothes-is/hypothes-is actually is quite suitable as a code review tool. Set up a group for each code review, and just highlight lines to add comments in pull request pages of Gogs.
