What is Bitbucket?

What is Fossil?

Fossil is a software configuration management system. Fossil is software that is designed to control and track the development of a software project and to record the history of the project. There are many such systems in use today. Fossil strives to distinguish itself from the others by being extremely simple to setup and operate.

What is GitLab?

GitLab offers git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds and wikis. Enterprises install GitLab on-premise and connect it with LDAP and Active Directory servers for secure authentication and authorization. A single GitLab server can handle more than 25,000 users but it is also possible to create a high availability setup with multiple active servers.

      Review ofGitLabGitLab

      You cannot get easier setup and deployment with GitLab. The documentation is huge and many common use cases are covered. It has a Community Edition (CE, free, 100% open source) and an Enterprise Edittion (EE, see pricing). The CE is more than good enough. Although in the entreprise world, the EE is much better suited if, for instance, LDAP is needed. There is a Web UI that allows people to version their work without too much hassle. If you are a developer and have worked with git before this is really easy.

      Als einer der größten Konkurrenten zu GitHub und BitBucket, stellt GitLab eine verlässliche Alternative dar. Als private GitLab Instanz oder als Service bietet GitLab alle Features die wir benötigen und das völlig Kostenfrei in der Community Edition. Hier liegen alle unsere Repositories.

      I was looking for an alternative to GitHub, where I could store my own private repositories. BitBucket filled that need and has performed extremely well.

      I use Bitbucket's git repositories as a low cost config sync between servers.

      Gitlab offers us a self-hosted replacement for Github and even more than we were expecting from it. All of our code is hosted in our private GitLab-instance, that also hosts our artifacts and is used to deploy them into production.

      Our self hosted gitlab service provides us with a private and secure environment for developing and testing our internal software. All of our dockerfiles, source code and configuration files for our infrastructure are stored here.

      We use Bitbucket and Bitbucket Pipelines because of its tight integration with JIRA and code authorization features.

      The primary drawback is that its extension ecosystem (e.g., PR review tools) is miles behind Github

      GitLab is our main Git server, housed on a separate box inside our VPN, it's diverse features and sandbox-support allows it to be an extremely good way to secure your source code.

      On Gitlab we host all of our private repositories. We have highly integrated it with other tools like JIRA and Sonar Qube to increase the Code Quality.

      Best GIT repository management software that allows free closed-source projects. Also works seamlessly with other Atlassian products.

      Great private repository capabilities that can be used for continuous integration in conjunction with Jira and Bamboo.
