Gogs vs Perforce: What are the differences?

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.

What is Perforce? Self-hosted Version Control Software. Visibility, access control, workflow and code management for Git environments. Flexibility of collaborating on the same codebase and code reviews using any combination of Perforce and Git workflows and tools without compromise.

Gogs and Perforce can be categorized as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools.

"Self-hosted github like service" is the top reason why over 32 developers like Gogs, while over 2 developers mention "Great for Enterprise level use" as the leading cause for choosing Perforce.

Gogs is an open source tool with 30.8K GitHub stars and 3.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gogs's open source repository on GitHub.

      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, but the web plugin hypothes.is https://stackshare.io/hypothes-is/hypothes-is actually is quite suitable as a code review tool. Set up a group for each code review, and just highlight lines to add comments in pull request pages of Gogs.
