GitLab Software


 

GitLab is a cloud-based project management platform that allows software developers to develop and manage codes collaboratively. The platform can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud.

GitLab helps developers manage the complete code lifecycle, from the inception of an idea to the deployment of code on production. Primary features of GitLab are Git repository management, code review, issue tracking, activity feeds and audit logs. The software is offered in four different editions: Community Edition, Enterprise Edition, GitLab.com and GitLab.io.

Users can upload their codes in the repository. GitLab also provides a repository mirroring feature that allows users to access a repository located on a different server with the help of the GitLab interface.

The code review feature allows users to evaluate code line-by-line and provide comments. The software additionally provides continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) to test, build and deploy codes.

The Enterprise Edition of the software offers automated testing, Git hooks, audit trails and administrator features.

Pros

It is easy to use and it has the built-in CI/CD functionality where you can automate unit testings and place your project in different environments to ensure its quality from testing to deployment.

Cons

Configurations can be pretty tricky, especially if you want to use the built-in CI/CD support and if you are new to Git, unit testing and SSH.

It is an open source service and so it's free and thus we can create as many private repositories as we want.

This program can be a bit much to get your head around unless you’re a very skilled developer. However, once everything is set up, it works great and has a ton of useful features.

Pros

Once GitLab is set up, it has so many features that you might get dizzy. Its GUI is very simple, which makes it very user-friendly. Even our non-developer employees were able to use it with ease with a little bit of instruction. We also love that it’s able to be used via the Cloud, which should be a given, but many competing programs don’t allow for use in the Cloud.

Cons

It’s quite hard to get everything set up. We had to have one of our advance developers set it up for us before we could get full use out of the software. The price is pretty high for this type of software, even with all of the features it offers.

Gitlab offers free users the use of private repositories which is great if you are working with a team across the world on sensitive code that is not privy to everyone, but needs to synchronized due to constant code changes and feature updates.

GitLab is one of the most versatile repositories out there.

Also, we can host in on our company's server ad don't worry about maintenance much.

Cons

It's very easy to use, so we can't really have much cons about this product. One thing I can say is that the ease of linking pull requests or issues or repos across has to be improved.

I really like the transparency of the Company and the product.

I've not found anything yet worth mentioning other than issues with `go get` for go deps. This may have been resolved, it's been awhile.

I am learning to use it, I have already handled several projects with it but it is a question of learning the git commands, in case handling it in the web application is very easy. recommended for all novice programmers.

Pros

I like how easy it is to create a code repository and be able to host a code project, using it with git to make group workload very easy. One of the repository handlers positioned between the first.
I love its interface, simple but elegant.

Cons

I do not have any bad reference for this code repository, the only essential thing for this is to learn the commands.

I've been using GitLab for years as my project management and version control solution. Having this vast tool-set in one place has significantly cut down on the tedium of trying to manage project across multiple services, and resulted in a drastically more efficient workflow.

Pros

GitLab is incredibly rich with features, too many to list here, all of which are fully integrated . The level of control and specificity you have at every step of the process is unparalleled, from project planning and issue tracking to code review and documentation. On top of that, the open-source nature of GitLab makes it really difficult not to recommend.

Cons

Just in my personal experience, I've found that the onboarding process for new collaborators can be somewhat intimidating when it comes to GitLab.

Pros

Our team have been using both GitLab and its main competitor for a number of years. We use GitLab when our projects require a slight bit more fine-tuning and control over our repositories.
GitLab easily offers the ability to hide repos / projects from public view, something its competitors rarely do for free.
The team management within GitLab is great, we have multiple different teams in the system all with different access, and its very easy to share repositories with colleagues and control who can see what.
Integration with other Git applications is great, we use this with GitKraken all the time and we've never had problem.

Cons

My main problem with GitLab is its user-interface, in comparison to its competitors it's not good at all. Various functions seem to be hidden within obscure menus and hidden drop-downs. Not too much of a problem once you're used to it, but for new users, its a real issue.
The comment system isn't great, for some reason GitLab stores any and all edits that are made, meaning even the slightest change to a pull / merge comment is noted.

Gitlab is free, open source and is a dream come true with its feature of unlimited private repositories. You can even put it on your own severs if you do not want to keep your code it on their servers. Gitlab is an amazing tool for developers and it even comes with CI now. It has a premium tier as well but one can gradually upgrade as one’s scale of operations and company size increases.

Cons

With gitlab there are really very few cons, the biggest reason is that they keep on improving their product at such a rapid pace and almost all of them are spot on in terms of user need and their implementation. It does hwever have a community size no where near services like Github has and we also need to consider the fact that almost every major open source project resides in Github. Also it does have a little downtime which does cause a little loss in productivity but with all its other features and the fact there is so much right there in the free tier itself I’m not complaining.

Pros

Gitlab allows developers and managers to easily iterate through software.
We love the issue first mentality and the way that GitLab makes the process from concept to code easy.

Cons

GitLab doesn't have an easy way to communicate software timelines to end users. Usually a tool like AHA has to be connected and using both is quite costly.

GitLab was a lifesaver for us as a small startup development team. Once we graduated to more enterprise-grade development, we switched from GitLab to the market leader, however we didn't NEED to "upgrade" for any particular reason.

Pros

GitLab has all the functionality of the other major players in this segment and even a few unique ones, all for a better price, especially if you self-host. For an small development team, it was invaluable to get all the benefits of git in a free self-hosted repository platform.

Cons

There are not many cons, but the one is that it is NOT the largest market leader (trying to not use their name in this review). While there is a large community for GitLab, if you are troubleshooting or trying to figure out exactly how certain features work, you'll end up with a lot of results for GH instead of GitLab.

GitLab has completely changed our process for the better. This is by far the best version control software our company has ever used. Very simple, very efficient.

Pros

Everything GitLab offers is the reason why you should be switching to this software today. If you already aren't losing GitLab you are costing your company money. From the features to the ease of use, GitLab has everything to offer. Can't say enough about this product, it is incredible.

Cons

I have worked with GitLab for months without any problems, if I can force myself to dig up one thing that could be changed. The documentation could be a touch better for someone using the software for the first time. However, it is very simple once you get the hang of it.

Pros

The fact it can be self hosted for free is the best feature of GitLab. Also the new Continuous Integration jobs is a killer feature which makes it a serious competitor in the hosted Git repository world. New features are always being added all the time which is awesome.

Cons

Sometimes the UI is confusing and the Integrations are often not as fully featured as you would get with Github. Sometimes the free edition is missing some features.
