CodeStream vs GitLab: What are the differences?
Developers describe CodeStream as "The Knowledge Base Behind Your Codebase". Dev team's discussions about code happen right inside the IDE, and are saved permanently with the code blocks to which they refer. On the other hand, GitLab is detailed as "Open source self-hosted Git management software". 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.
CodeStream can be classified as a tool in the "Integrated Development Environment Tools" category, while GitLab is grouped under "Code Collaboration & Version Control".
Some of the features offered by CodeStream are:
- Multiple IDE support
- Works across branches
- Discussions saved alongside your codebase
On the other hand, GitLab provides the following key features:
- Manage git repositories with fine grained access controls that keep your code secure
- Perform code reviews and enhance collaboration with merge requests
- Each project can also have an issue tracker and a wiki
GitLab is an open source tool with 20.1K GitHub stars and 5.33K GitHub forks. Here's a link to GitLab's open source repository on GitHub.
