Gitea vs LGTM: What are the differences?
Gitea: A painless self-hosted Git service. Gitea is a community managed lightweight code hosting solution written in Go. It published under the MIT license; LGTM: A simple pull request approval system for GitHub. LGTM is a simple pull request approval system using GitHub protected branches and maintainers files. Pull requests are locked and cannot be merged until the minimum number of approvals are received. Project maintainers can indicate their approval by commenting on the pull request and including LGTM (looks good to me) in their approval text.
Gitea can be classified as a tool in the "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category, while LGTM is grouped under "Tools for GitHub".
Gitea and LGTM are both open source tools. It seems that Gitea with 14.7K GitHub stars and 1.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than LGTM with 936 GitHub stars and 92 GitHub forks.
Out of most of the VCS solutions out there, we found Gitlab was the most feature complete with a free community edition. Their DevSecops offering is also a very robust solution. Gitlab CI/CD was quite easy to setup and the direct integration with your VCS + CI/CD is also a bonus. Out of the box integration with major cloud providers, alerting through instant messages etc. are all extremely convenient. We push our CI/CD updates to MS Teams.
