GitBucket vs Gitolite: What are the differences?

Developers describe GitBucket as "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. On the other hand, Gitolite is detailed as "Setup git hosting on a central server, with fine-grained access control". Gitolite allows you to setup git hosting on a central server, with fine-grained access control and many more powerful features. Gitolite is an access control layer on top of git.

GitBucket and Gitolite belong to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack.

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, Gitolite provides the following key features:

  • Use a single unix user ("real" user) on the server.
  • Provide access to many gitolite users: they are not "real" users, so they do not get shell access.
  • Control access to many git repositories: read access controlled at the repo level, and write access controlled at the branch/tag/file/directory level, including who can rewind, create, and delete branches/tags.

"Self hosted" is the top reason why over 7 developers like GitBucket, while over 4 developers mention "Easy setup" as the leading cause for choosing Gitolite.

GitBucket and Gitolite are both open source tools. GitBucket with 7.73K GitHub stars and 1.06K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Gitolite with 7.45K GitHub stars and 961 GitHub forks.
