GitLab vs ungit: What are the differences?
Developers describe GitLab as "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. On the other hand, ungit is detailed as "The easiest way to use git. On any platform. Anywhere". Clean and intuitive UI that makes it easy to understand git.
GitLab can be classified as a tool in the "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category, while ungit is grouped under "Git Tools".
Some of the features offered by GitLab are:
- 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
On the other hand, ungit provides the following key features:
- Runs on any platform that node.js & git supports.
- Web-based, meaning you can run it on your cloud/pure shell machine and use the ui from your browser (just browse to http://your-cloud-machine.com:8448).
- Works well with GitHub.
GitLab and ungit are both open source tools. It seems that GitLab with 20.1K GitHub stars and 5.33K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ungit with 8.39K GitHub stars and 543 GitHub forks.
