Gogs vs Visual Studio: 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 Visual Studio? State-of-the-art tools and services that you can use to create great apps for devices, the cloud, and everything in between. Visual Studio is a suite of component-based software development tools and other technologies for building powerful, high-performance applications.

Gogs belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Visual Studio can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".

"Self-hosted github like service" is the primary reason why developers consider Gogs over the competitors, whereas "Intellisense, ui" was stated as the key factor in picking Visual Studio.

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.

Microsoft, Starbucks, and Intuit are some of the popular companies that use Visual Studio, whereas Gogs is used by Write.as, OSInet, and GameDuell. Visual Studio has a broader approval, being mentioned in 676 company stacks & 1010 developers stacks; compared to Gogs, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

      I use Visual Studio because it provides me best default configuration for development. Less choice helps me concentrate on the product. In a sense it is iPhone of software development for me. When my laptop broke, I just download latest version of VS and start coding without any configuration. For sure it has best editor in terms of perceived responsiveness. Could not say the same for IntelliJ IDEA unfortunately.

      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.

      We are an ASP.NET shop, so it is fitting that we use Visual Studio. The biggest advantage that VS gives us is the first-class debugger, and the ReSharper refactoring tools. We do use Sublime, Brackets, Vim, Emacs, and other editors in conjunction with VS since VS does can take a long time to load.

      An IDE which I use for at least ten years now. Roslyn is getting better and better, but VS Code seems better now. A bit obsolete concept, but the extra tools (like git integration, azure browsing, preset projects and solutions) makes it still very useful.

      Best open source, good replacement for Visual Studio. I'm using it as my development environment in C# and Dynamics 365 Business Central (extension development).
