Meer informatie over GitLab

Pluspunten:

GitLab is easy to use and configure the code collaboration is also top notch with every commit being logged to review incase someone messes up the code.

Minpunten:

A bit confusing at the beginning, it's complex and has a steep learning curve. The user interface could do a make over.

Easy to setup , use and manage devops platform

5,0 7 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: We needed a tool that we could integrate with Nexus and that could be installed and used on our own servers. GitLab was a perfect fit

Pluspunten:

I like how easy it was to set up and configure. Adding runners (servers that build your code) was intuitive, CI/CD works fine. When you switch from GutHub, you must get used to the naming convention, but this requires only a couple of minutes to get used to.Overall I highly recommend GitLab for anyone who wants to set up such a platform on-premise.

Minpunten:

When you switch from other tools like GitHub you see features that are missing, mainly in CI/CD. You can't update a global variable from a job and must use workarounds. The pricing is a bit high, especially for the Ultimate plan.

Eerder overwogen alternatieven: GitHub

Redenen om over te stappen op GitLab: We needed something that we could use on our own servers. We build critical apps for our customers and we must be sure the source code stays at our own servers. GitHub Enterprise was not taken into account because of the price.

GitLab Review

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: GitLab resolved our version controlling problems, code review problems. It helps to maintain our code standards very easily. We can setup It on our local server also very easily. It is free anyone can try it.

Pluspunten:

GitLab is a superb source code managemanet provide. It is free. We can install it in our privet server also. As well as we can use their server with a free account. We use git for version control. GitLab provides awesome support for version control. It is a very easy tool. Anyone can use it very easily If someone has no more knowledge about versioning but He can use GitLab very easy. We can maintain our Repositories/Branchers. User access level also there. Currently, We use GitLab. We maintain feature branches, dev branch, and master branch. Everyone does not allow to merge code to the dev branch. If someone add merge request to the dev branch, our one-person review code and merge. Then we use GitLab it is easy for us. GitLab provides superb dashboard it very easy to review code. It shows all code changes with file by file. Easy to compare. As well as we can compare two branches vary easy. It provides a clear, unique, user-friendly dashboard. GitLab also supports CI/CD process. It's superb we can recommend for anyone. If our commit has some conflict it shows how to resolve that step by step.

Minpunten:

When I add a new commit. If the file is large/have many lines. It not showing code changes directly. It shows a message file has many lines cannot show changes that kind of message. Sometimes when we compare two commits. It not more clear. Some times confusing. If I show some file history only show commits. not showing code changes by commits. We want to go and check every commits to show changes.

Redenen om over te stappen op GitLab: It's free. We can setup on our local servers. It provides an easy, powerful, clear, and userfriendly dashboard. Its same thing wants for version control. Its there on GitLab.

GitLab for Mechanical and Electrical Engineers

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: It's great for small teams! It's hard to get people to use this over a "sharedrive", but it has significantly more features.

Pluspunten:

It has all the necessary features for revision control for projects with a few people on it.

Minpunten:

There is not a great way to teach this to people who are coming in from a CAD system like Catia, Solidworks, or Creo. There is not a great way to teach this to PCB designers that are coming from KiCAD or Altium. It would be great to have a GUI for those that aren't using a traditional codebase.

A good product if you stay within its limits

4,0 3 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: I would not choose Gitlab over Github if I have a choice because the CI system on Github is better and so many people know how to use Github that it's just a better place for open source software I believe. If I am working on closed-source software and Gitlab has already been selected then I wouldn't object, it'll get the job done well.

Pluspunten:

I like Gitlab in most ways. It has great task management that integrates well with code changes. As a Git server, it does everything you need. It's relatively easy to administrate. If you stick with the well-supported features then Gitlab will serve you well.

Minpunten:

The technology is showing its age and can be frustrating to use. Integrating custom runners can be shockingly painful. I have run into UI bugs that allow tasks to be run before their dependencies are met which has caused serious release problems. Designing pipelines without a system like Github actions is incredibly fiddly and error prone.

My favourite source control management tool

5,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Pluspunten:

I came to GitLab years ago from Subversion. The adoption was instant and I never looked back. I had to use other technology for different projects, such as Azure, which still packs a punch but cannot be compared to Gitlab in terms of simplicity, clarity and ease of use. Gitlab i still my go-to source control management tool.

Minpunten:

Very little, everything was making sense to me and was easy to find.

Great managing coding version. Powerfull code review. Struggle with large project.

5,0 2 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: We use every day GitLab for share the projects of our company, documentation, control version code and collaboration features for peer feedback.

Pluspunten:

In addition to allowing the management of code repositories, it also provides tools for continuous building, automated testing, issue tracking. Its ability to host both public and private code repositories.

Minpunten:

Its relatively steep learning curve. May require significant hardware and bandwidth resources to run properly.

The best opensource tool for software engineering management

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We're hosting all of our private code repositories on gitlab.com, using the issue tracker, merge requests. We also run our continuos builds and deploy directly to our Google Cloud Kubernetes Engine workloads.

Pluspunten:

It's opensource though provides a cloud based solution with a really good free tier. It allows integrating code repositories with issue tracking and continuos integration and continuos deployment

Minpunten:

User experience could be largely improved. Searching and filters are a bit clunky from the UX point of view. Also bulk actions are only allowed at project level.

Gitlab review

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: We really like GitLab, we were able to use it for fully automated development procedure which saves us large amount of time and help us to isolate the bugs before switching to production.

Pluspunten:

Gitlab gives us sufficient features to support source code management, user administration and Continuous integration for reasonable pricing

Minpunten:

There is really nothing in my mind which I specifically do not like about the GitLab but If there would be room for improvement, We would appreciate more features for CI/CD integration testing.

Code repositories and version tracking

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: GitLab ensures our code is safe and secure, everything is version tracked, we can easily collaborate with other colleagues and allows for a good QA environment before launch.

Pluspunten:

GitLab allows users to easily store their code projects and files in a safe and secure environment, allowing easy collaboration amongst users. You can import repositories from other Git tools (such as GitHub) with ease, GitLab also imports any version history and accompanying branches. The ability to make certain repositories private is excellent, most similar git systems charge extra for this service.

Minpunten:

The user-interface, though clean and responsive, can be hard to use and master. Especially for new users, training is definitely required. The integration with interfacing tools is lacking, most systems (such as GitKraken) require a premium license to connect with GitLab. User management can be complicated, as the user interface isn't particularly clear here, and the different levels of access aren't clearly identified.

A serious contender in the Self Host GIT space

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: It's really nice to have it, and the fact they were the first to allow for free private repositories is a nice gesture

Pluspunten:

For us, it was crucial to be able to self host an instance to have it totally off grid and Gitlab delivered beautifully

Minpunten:

A bit obscure to setup, and updates can be quite time consuming as we cannot do them as often as would be required by the project

Eerder overwogen alternatieven: GitHub

Redenen om voor GitLab te kiezen: GIT has a much better workflow for managing branches

A must have tool for every development team

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Gitlab is simply the best version control and project management tool for any organisation, period! It has everything you need in a greatly priced package. It is my go to tool for my personal projects as well as used in every organisation I have worked with. I even tried to host their community version myself which was great. The documentation is well laid out, breaking changes are communicated well. Apart from this, the CI/CD functionality is easy to use, UI easy to navigate, reporting/labelling/tagging features are one of the easiest. The free plan for individuals or small team covers everything you need.

Minpunten:

None I can think of. I even like the new UI introduced recently.

Eerder overwogen alternatieven: GitHub en Bitbucket

Redenen om over te stappen op GitLab: Availability of CI/CD before any other alternatives. Ease of use. Private repositories in free plan. Ease of working with in a team.

An incredibly useful tool for version control and CI/CD

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Having migrated a number of Subversion repositories to GitLab, its extended functionality compared to the more simplistic approach of SVN has undoubtedly saved a significant amount of time.

Pluspunten:

GitLab comes packed with a number of helpful facilities for managing continuous integration/deployment tasks. The option to self-host a GitLab instance is also appreciated.

Minpunten:

Comes with something of a learning curve and can take a while to fully introduce non-technical users to its functionality.

Eerder overwogen alternatieven: GitHub en Git

Redenen om voor GitLab te kiezen: Need for extended functionality, CI/CD support.

Great software wit a minimal but efficient design but can definitely use improvements

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Best way to use it is to keep your gitlab organized is keeping pr's as functional as possible and not mashing 1000 changes into one pr. otherwise gitlab performance go down and so will the interest of the other people who review your merge request!! Setting up gitlab to manage your software projects is child's play, and although the UI is minimal in design it which gets the job done but could definitely use some enhancements and that would make it a top tier no nonsense go-to-software-management-product. Overall it is a great software. I am not aware of the quality of the customer service on the paid tier so can't comment on that. One can manage and maintain gitlab inhouse without needing any paid support. I would recommend it without reservations to any and all software developing companies.

Pluspunten:

1. Free of cost 2. Highly efficient, does the job without uncertainty. 3. Never observed any downtime 4. Very frequent and proper updates to the software. 5. easy to maintain 6. can easily integrate with jenkins for Continuous Integration- Continuous Deployment. 7. Easy to setup and use, no support or setup or external teams required. Anybody with minimum computer skills can get this up and running. 8. easy integration with youtrack for issue tracking and merge requesting tracking

Minpunten:

These are not very big cons, but I find them annoying and could definitely use improvement: 1. The edit description on an open merge request also shows up on the history. So If somebody were to make a 10 different changes to the title while keeping the 2. The code formatting in the description box is not too good. It can take several tries before getting it right. 3. There is no way of searching for something based on a line of text. For example if you were looking for a commit or a merge request but you only remember the 4. sometimes very challenging to go back and undo merges which are quite complex. 5. on a given pr, it shows icons of all the participants but doesn't say which participant did what... for example if 5 people have just viewed a pr and done nothing else even then it shows all of them as participants. It would be nice to have a feature which will only show activity by participant on every pr. 6. text based Search via ui is practically no existent. So if you search for something using a text which is part of a commit message, chances are it will not show up 100%.

A complete tool to store your projects and configure your CI/CD

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I have great thoughts about GitLab my experience has been really good. I was really impressed when I started working with it and configured the first project there. I definitely recommend GitLab to anyone that wants to start a new project and doesn't want to use too many tools, GitLab has everything that you need to start.

Pluspunten:

I started using GitLab for an external project and I like the following: 1) Easy to work with and auto explanatory. Creating/configuring a new repository is really easy. 2) Great CI/CD implementation. Having the repository with built-in CI/CD is really convenient, you can have everything related to the build and deployment process saved along with your code. I have used bamboo and I really appreciate this feature, it might have its problems but it is really useful. 3) Unlimited private docker registry, you can have your own private registry for free. I cannot express how useful this is. 4) In order to help with the CI/CD process it allows the creation of tokens with access restrictions (read only), so you can use these tokens to download your code or your docker containers without having to provide your personal credentials. 5) It has its own task manager 6) It has free agents that are in charge of executing your builds/deploys so you don't have to provide your own resources.

Minpunten:

1) Configuring build variables is really messy and it is not an ideal implementation. I haven't found a way to set different values for them depending on the branch, so configuring different environments is not too easy 2) Even though having your code with CI/CD is really convenient, it has some drawbacks. If you have an established continuous deployment process that you repeat in many projects and you want to change it (maybe a fix it or improve it) you will have to add that change to all your repositories and all the branches that you want to deploy. So it is a really good feature but it is not too flexible 3) The task manager is messy, and I didn't find a way to have a shared board. 4) It does not have too many software integrations, as I mentioned before I have used bamboo and I really like their integration with other software

The Best DevOps Platform

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall, GitLab is an excellent program for freelancers. It's really simple to use, simple to administrate and offers all that users need for developing. And if users implement it in the correct way it will speed up their development effectively. Adding more to this, it provides excellent ways to manage git repositories on a centralized secure server.

Pluspunten:

Project operation: Using GitLab provides the user with complete control over their projects. Users can easily follow up activities assigned to their respective partners. Additionally, the program gives you the advantage to have members across the borders as well, hence it is pretty useful and comes in handy when the work is beyond the borders. Easy to use: GitLab is easy to lean and very easy to use the software as it helps in creating a project by giving instructions from the beginning. The tutorial mode is extremely helpful and because of that no experience or expertise is required to exhaust all the features offered by GitLab.

Minpunten:

Contact Support: Although GitLab provides a good platform for its users, unfortunately, their contact section is poor. Users are unable to recover if they face any problem as the administration is limited. Administration can only be at your service if you own the premium version. Complicated: Although Gitlab is easy to learn when it comes to the menu users tend to feel as if they are lost in some sort of maze. The menu is pretty much clunky because of this some of its users are unable to use GitLab to its full potential. Additionally, the efficiency of users is reduced to a great extent when they wish to search for aspects because it consumes time and energy.

A great free alternative to GitHub if you need large repos and teams

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: GitLab helped us solve all of our backup and collaboration needs for our large file projects. While we do have on-site physical backups just in case, GitLab is great at keeping the core files safe. On the physical backup we put big assets and on GitLab mostly the code. If it wasn't for GitLab we'd be using GitHub for some projects only as certain files surpass their limit.

Pluspunten:

The biggest pro for us at JeFawk Games (me and my freelancing friends, not employees as stated) was the fact that it allowed for 1GB of space for free in private repos! Since we're working on games, we really needed the space and the privacy. This was from before GitHub was acquired by Microsoft and gave away unlimited free repos. Time forwarding a bit and GitHub is giving out free private repos of max 1GB with the option to use the Large File Storage thing, which in GitLab you don't need to bother with as you get it by default. It includes DevOps and a lot of other features that frankly we don't make use of. It's just the much bigger space by default and up to 3 collaborators. GitLab is great! Although it does have some cons....

Minpunten:

One of the biggest problem with GitLab is that their website is a bit laggy. You can wait 1 to 4 seconds for some pages to load. Another issue is that we actually use the GitHub Desktop application to handle GitLab repositories and the setup to connect the application to GitLab is kinda clunky, more like to allow GitLab to be grabbed as URL. Wouldn't wanna go through that again, hopefully they already streamlined it as last time I did it was about 2 years ago.

Easy to use, comprehensive, open-source tool for project management

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We have set up and customized GitLab on our own servers in order to manage a project where digital marketing, software, devops, human resources and many teams work together. This really relieved us of a great burden. Everyone's own project management area on GitLab was clear, besides, the issues and projects that they needed to work on were also very clear. We can follow many processes such as product development, project management, task tracking in a sustainable way. It also serves as a great archive for people who join the team later.

Pluspunten:

GitLab is an easy to use and versatile project management tool. As a team, we use it not only for software development projects, but also for the follow-up of our other projects. It is really great that it is customizable, you can simplify your interface for your teammates who cannot use complex applications. This offers you a more user-friendly product.

Minpunten:

It's a little harder for people other than engineers to adapt. You shouldn't expect traditional drag-and-drop kanban boards. It's a bit of a technical product. But if we consider that the intended use of the product, this is really normal, not a big minus.

A perfect place for program management

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Safe to use as SaaS. Easy to build even on-premises, but the SaaS version can be used with peace of mind thanks to strong security measures. Obtaining ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 certification, can be used with greater peace of mind, making it easier to approve the internal introduction request. If you are confident in the security, you can operate free of charge by creating a local server. When creating the request form to send to the internal IT department when submitting the SaaS version, there were some unclear points about security management in GitLab, but GitLab support took the trouble to conduct a remote meeting and was able to resolve all doubts.

Pluspunten:

The source code can be managed anywhere as long as you are connected to the Internet. The editor also supports Once editing is finished, you can manage versions by connecting to the Internet and clicking, so you do not need to be connected to the Internet all the time. The source code editing software also supports this, so you can manage it with GUI button operation.

Minpunten:

There is issue management, but there is no task management feature. Therefore, we are forced to handle GitLab + Redmine. If you have a task management feature, you can consolidate with this, and work efficiency will increase.

GitLab - one-stop solution for development and source control

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I've been using Gitlab both as part of a company and as an individual. It fit both needs. You can also switch on/off some of the features and simplify the experience if you don't want to use the CI/CD for example.

Pluspunten:

I believe this is the best Github competitor which offers more configuration flexibility in setting up your development lifecycle.

Minpunten:

The menus are not very UX friendly. There are lots of options when using Gitlab and sometimes is hard to find the particular section you need. It's annoying but having in mind all the good things that Gitlab offers, it's negligible.

Best Value Suite of Software Development Tools

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Gitlab has an extremely robust free tier with tools that go far beyond simple source/version control. We use the Gitlab CI/CD pipeline runner extensively, allowing us to not only use Gitlab for source, but also for our deployment/build pipeline. Gitlab also has the ability to manage Kubernetes clusters from the suite, which is super helpful. We also extensively use the issue board for tracking scrum issues, which includes time estimates. Gitlab used to be most popular for offering free private repos, and it still does, but these other free features make it an absolute home run. We use Gitlab for every project because of how great it's been.

Minpunten:

The pipeline runner can occasionally be a bit buggy sometimes, but nothing critical. For example, if you prematurely stop one pipeline and immediately start another, it can take 10 minutes for the new pipeline to start for some reason. Also, the time tracking on the issue board does not automatically put the sum at the top of the column, which I find annoying - we built a small gitlab api integration to pull that info for us. They have been updating this feature recently, though, so it may be solved soon.

Makes Source Code and Project Management easy for your team

5,0 8 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: GitLab provides an excellent solution to our teams source code management and provides the tools we need to work with agile project management using boards to organise and schedule work for the project.

Pluspunten:

I liked that it was possible to have GitLab installed on-premise rather than being forced to use the Cloud version, don't get me wrong Cloud services have their place but sometimes you just have to keep things local.The GUI is also something that I find intuitive to use and this helps to ensure that we use it to the best of it's ability in terms of project management.

Minpunten:

It can take some getting used to the workflow that GitLab likes to use if you have not used a tool like this before and I find that the structure of their tutorials is difficult to work with.Maybe I have missed something in their website, but they could improve the learning resources.
