Bitbucket vs Git: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bitbucket as "One place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private repositories". Bitbucket gives teams one place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private Git repositories. Teams choose Bitbucket because it has a superior Jira integration, built-in CI/CD, & is free for up to 5 users. On the other hand, Git is detailed as "Fast, scalable, distributed revision control system". Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

Bitbucket belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Git can be primarily classified under "Version Control System".

"Free private repos", "Simple setup" and "Nice ui and tools" are the key factors why developers consider Bitbucket; whereas "Distributed version control system", "Efficient branching and merging" and "Fast" are the primary reasons why Git is favored.

Git is an open source tool with 28.2K GitHub stars and 16.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Git's open source repository on GitHub.

How developers use Bitbucket and Git

been an avid git user for over 6 years. was a little hard to grasp coming from the world of perforce but once it hit me that it was just a glorified patch manager everything fell into place. mainly use the command line interface, most ui's feel bulky and weak.

Git has rendered itself to be an integral part of all development at JustChunks. We heavily rely on Git as our version-control-system of choice and use branches, tags and decentralized-development to achieve our software-management-goals.

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.

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

the next generation of version control, all others follow older outdated models. Open Source, no fees to use. Can hoist up your own internal server. Can live on a thumb drive. Developers can share from any OS.

I use Git because there is nothing else that seems better for backup and working with other developers. However, the learning curve is high and there are times when non-developers must also know how to use git.

Git ist ein essentieller Bestandteil unserer Entwicklungsteams. Sei es zur Versionskontrolle, Backupen von Code, dem gemeinsamen arbeiten an Projekten. Durch Git Flow haben wir eine effektive Arbeitsweise.

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