GitHub vs GitPrime: What are the differences?

What is GitHub? Powerful collaboration, review, and code management for open source and private development projects. GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. Over three million people use GitHub to build amazing things together.

What is GitPrime? Metrics in Context for Data-Driven Engineering Leaders. GitPrime uses data from GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket—or any Git based code repository—to help engineering leaders move faster, optimize work patterns, and advocate for engineering with concrete data.

GitHub belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while GitPrime can be primarily classified under "Code Review".

Some of the features offered by GitHub are:

  • Command Instructions
  • Source Browser
  • Git Powered Wikis

On the other hand, GitPrime provides the following key features:

  • View a project's code commits, ticket activity, and PRs in a single dashboard
  • Know what "a day in the life" of your engineers is like
  • Identify project bottlenecks at a glance
- No public GitHub repository available -
- No public GitHub repository available -

        What are some alternatives to GitHub and GitPrime?
        GitLab
        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.
        Bitbucket
        Bitbucket gives teams one place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private Git repositories. Teams choose Bitbucket because it has a superior Jira integration, built-in CI/CD, & is free for up to 5 users.
        AWS CodeCommit
        CodeCommit eliminates the need to operate your own source control system or worry about scaling its infrastructure. You can use CodeCommit to securely store anything from source code to binaries, and it works seamlessly with your existing Git tools.
        Git
        Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.
        SVN (Subversion)
        Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

        For starters you can fork a repo, edit it online and send a pull request which is huge if its something very small that you want to commit. The whole pull request system, the UI and the UX are great. If I sent out a pull request that failed on travis CI then all I need to do is fix it in my fork and the original pull request will have these updates as well making it super easy for everyone involved. Overall a great service.

        I love GitHub! They provide a completely free service for hosting, storing, and collaborating on code. Seriously, if you aren't using them, go sign up now.

        Great collaboration-friendly git repository hosting. Plus integration with all sorts of other stuff, like Travis CI. But the command bar has disappeared...

        "Having a CI server building all commits across all branches was a huge first step, but to make this useful we needed to surface the outcome of these builds. This is where GitHub’s commit status API comes in. Every time our CI server begins a build, it pings GitHub’s commit status endpoint, and every time it completes a build it hits the endpoint again with the outcome. Now every open PR includes a yellow/red/green indicator for the branch in question, with a direct link to the build status page on our CI server. In practice this means more transparency, faster feedback cycles, and a guarantee that every branch merged into master has a passing test suite. This integration has been a huge help in keeping our master branch green, and has thus greatly reduced our deploy times (since engineers aren’t waiting on build failures to be resolved in master)."

        Pervasive, easy to use Git repo hosting. I host ongoing personal projects privately and my personal blog (via GitHub Pages).

        I also take successful proofs of concept (for example, experimenting with linking AWS Lambda to Heroku Postgres to create a serverless SQL backed web app), and host them as public example repos. These are linked to Dependabot and CircleCI if they have tests so that dependencies can be kept up to date automatically over time and the code using the dependencies can stay fresh over time for example viewers.

        GitHub is a Web-based Git version control repository hosting service. It is mostly used for computer code. It offers all of the distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. It provides access control and several collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, and wikis for every project

        Yeah, so we use GitHub, and we basically use a variant of continuous deployment where when anyone merges in a feature that they’ve finished with, they ship it immediately, and we bundle it up as a build pack and send it to all of our EC2 servers... Any developer on the team can trigger a build and deploy at any time. So on a given day, we probably deploy 20 or 30 times to prod.

        One thing I really wish GitHub had: Trello-style kanban for Issues. There are a bunch of services and tools that add Kanban to GitHub Issues. But Trello just seems far better. If GitHub had it’s own kanban tool, I’d probably use it. Right now it’s pretty painful to try to tie cards to commits manually (when/if we remember to).
