Gogs vs SVN (Subversion): 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 SVN (Subversion)? Enterprise-class centralized version control for the masses. 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.

Gogs can be classified as a tool in the "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category, while SVN (Subversion) is grouped under "Version Control System".

"Self-hosted github like service" is the top reason why over 32 developers like Gogs, while over 17 developers mention "Easy to use" as the leading cause for choosing SVN (Subversion).

Gogs and SVN (Subversion) are both open source tools. Gogs with 30.6K GitHub stars and 3.54K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than SVN (Subversion) with 326 GitHub stars and 118 GitHub forks.

Coderus, Performance Assessment Network (PAN), and Die Coder GmbH are some of the popular companies that use SVN (Subversion), whereas Gogs is used by Write.as, OSInet, and GameDuell. SVN (Subversion) has a broader approval, being mentioned in 77 company stacks & 58 developers stacks; compared to Gogs, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

    I use Git instead of SVN (Subversion) because it allows us to scale our development team. At any given time, the Zulip open source project has hundreds of open pull requests from tens of contributors, each in various stages of the pipeline. Git's workflow makes it very easy to context switch between different feature branches.

    I use Visual Studio Code because at this time is a mature software and I can do practically everything using it.

    Gogs

    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.

    My current work has taught me so much of SVN. Though it is classic and has own pros and cons, I like it too specially the way it handles and tracks the edits with revision numbers and merge techniques.
