Bitbucket is a collaborative Git solution that allows users to review codes with pull requests. Users can have discussions with coders in the source code with inline comments. The software provides a multi-deployment option as it can be hosted in the cloud or on-premise.

Configuration as code enables developers to manage their own delivery workflows. Users can configure Bitbucket pipelines by adding a bitbucket-pipelines.yml file to the root of a repository. Bitbucket pipelines show build statuses automatically on branches, commits and pull requests.

Branch permissions provide limited access controls to team members, so that only users with knowledge of editing codes can make changes to the code. Users can analyze the changes in repositories with unified or side-by-side views while reviewing codes.

The solution integrates with other applications such as JIRA, Hipchat, Bamboo and trello. Support is provided via an online forum, email and phone. Pricing is per user per month.

My take on Bitbucket

I'm fairly satisfied with this product, any project that I believe to demand a more serious approach are usually directed to bitbucket.

Pros

Bitbucket's compromise with its user's privacy and the safekeeping of their source code. Also, its interface have a very serious and business like look.

Cons

Its interface one time or other have been less than intuitive, and it's charts (e.g. for tracking branches) have also been underwhelming.

A good competitor in this field

I've been using BitBucket in a working environment for almost a year now. It is great for working with other people or for just sharing some code/projects. I choose this software because of the free tier.

Pros

For the most part it is free to use
User friendly interface

Cons

The software lacks some advance feature that some of the competitors offers

Been using BitBucket for 2 year and I'm a happy customer

Overall me and my team is happy using bitbucket and we will continue to use this as our code repo in the future.

Pros

The ability use client side tools like bit source tree is a bit and integration with external tools like JIRA makes our lives as developer much easier.

Cons

When upgrading the client applications like source tree the authentication becomes a bit issue. Currently Im facing such issues where I'm prompted to login multiple times. The online support to figure out this issue was scares.

Great and less expensive version control

It's been great experience. For simple version control and especially if there is not a big team and not much money to spend I would definitely choose Bitbucket. Overall I would say its great.

Pros

Neat and clean user interface and lesser expensive even for free version we can have private repositories and more than 2 team members which is great for our startup
Great at integration with other Atlassian products like JIRA and Bamboo. When we integrate it with other Atlassian products we can a lot of automatic features which is brilliant in decision making about merging a pull request
Easy to use user access

Cons

Not easy to integrate with 3rd party softwares like slack as compared to its competitors like GitHub
If we want continuous integration we have to pay and cost of Bamboo can be high

Bitbucket: Great Tool For Managing Git Repositories

Pros

What I like most about bitbucket is that it allows projects from other sources such as Codeplex, Git and SoyrceForge to be imported easily.
I like how clean easy to use the user interface is.
I also like its easy integration with JIRA.

Cons

One major issue I have with this software is that it can be confusing sometimes to find pull requests once they've been reviewed.
Another issue is that the community is not as large as that of github

My review for Bitbucket

Pros

Its simple to use. Has every functionality a code repo system should have and the response time is acceptable. You can configure easily CD/CI and of course associate with Jira/Slack that is the best.

Cons

The free plan is quite expensive, you can have only up to 5 user, 50 mins of build and 1 GB or storage..

A web-based version control repository for GIT & Mercurail.

Atlassian Bitbucket is one of the best version control tool. Smart Mirroring which provide the GIT clone for distributed teams working with the large repositories as Smart Mirroring just take minutes to clone it.

Pros

Atlassian Bitbucket is a web-based version control repository for GIT & Mercurail. It provide the version management and make the release easy and manageable. 2-Step authentication also make it secure and only allow authentic user to get in. IP whitelisting also enhance the level of security of bitbucket. Merge Check feature also make it simple and easy to do merger operations with some predefined merge templates. Add on integrity with other tool is also good and make it worth when you use in the enterprise environment.

Cons

If your always looking for private repositories then bitbucket a good choice. A good speed internet in also necessity. I had face some feature are unable for a point of time but when I check it's again it's show available.

Free private repos

Pros
