Gerrit Code Review vs Sourcegraph: What are the differences?

What is Gerrit Code Review? OpenSource Git Code Review Tool. Gerrit is a self-hosted pre-commit code review tool. It serves as a Git hosting server with option to comment incoming changes. It is highly configurable and extensible with default guarding policies, webhooks, project access control and more.

What is Sourcegraph? Code search and code intelligence for you and your team. Sourcegraph is a code search engine that lets you search across hundreds of thousands of libraries and browse code in the same way you can do in a great IDE. Search for a function, see live examples of how it’s used by other repositories, and jump to the definition of other code around it—even if the definition is in a completely different repository.

Some of the features offered by Gerrit Code Review are:
