GitBucket vs Gogs: 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 Gogs? A self-hosted Git service written in Go. The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest and most painless way to set up a self-hosted Git service. With Go, this can be done in independent binary distribution across ALL platforms that Go supports, including Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

GitBucket and Gogs 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, Gogs provides the following key features:

  • Activity timeline
  • SSH/HTTP(S) protocol support
  • SMTP/LDAP/reverse proxy authentication support

"Self hosted" is the primary reason why developers consider GitBucket over the competitors, whereas "Self-hosted github like service" was stated as the key factor in picking Gogs.

GitBucket and Gogs are both open source tools. Gogs with 30.8K GitHub stars and 3.56K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than GitBucket with 7.73K GitHub stars and 1.06K GitHub forks.

GameDuell, Write.as, and OSInet are some of the popular companies that use Gogs, whereas GitBucket is used by 8ack GmbH, Koch Essen Kommunikation + Design GmbH, and DairyWindow. Gogs has a broader approval, being mentioned in 9 company stacks & 10 developers stacks; compared to GitBucket, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

      I installed Gogs after a few repos I planned to use on GitHub disappeared without explanation, and after Microsoft's acquisition of same, it made me think about the over-centralization of community-developed software. A self-hosted solution that enables easy point-and-click mirroring of important repositories for my projects, both in-house and 3rd-party, ensures I won't be bitten by upstream catastrophes. (So far, Microsoft's stewardship has been fine, but always be prepared). It's also a very nice way to host one's own private repos before they're ready for prime-time on github.

      Gogs is written in Go and is easy to install and configure, much more so than GitLab. The only major feature I wish it had is an integrated code review tool.
