GitBucket vs GitLab: What are the differences?

What is GitBucket? The easily installable Github clone powered by Scala. GitBucket provides a Github-like UI and features such as Git repository hosting via HTTP and SSH, repository viewer, issues, wiki and pull request.

What is GitLab? 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.

GitBucket and GitLab can be categorized as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools.

Some of the features offered by GitBucket are:

  • Public / Private Git repository (http and ssh access)
  • Repository viewer and online file editing
  • Repository search (Code and Issues)

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

"Self hosted" is the primary reason why developers consider GitBucket over the competitors, whereas "Self hosted" was stated as the key factor in picking GitLab.

GitBucket and GitLab are both open source tools. GitLab with 20.1K GitHub stars and 5.33K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than GitBucket with 7.73K GitHub stars and 1.06K GitHub forks.

Alibaba.com, trivago, and Avocode are some of the popular companies that use GitLab, whereas GitBucket is used by 8ack GmbH, Koch Essen Kommunikation + Design GmbH, and DairyWindow. GitLab has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1233 company stacks & 1475 developers stacks; compared to GitBucket, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

        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.

        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.

        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.
