Pros: The support is excellent; Gitlab responsds quickliy to support issues. The community is very helpful. Gitlab has a clear and concise interface. You can have free private repositories. It has many new optional features, such as burndown charts, issue tracking, milestones, estimates, etc. The communication regarding updates is very good; they are announced in time and also a brief description of the update is given.

Cons: Third party integration is a a bit limited. The interface may change a little after an update; a function may switch to another part on the page and it can be quite a hassle to search for the functions again.

Overall: We use Gitlab as our main versioning system for software development. It is free and easy to use and you can choose from many functionalities.

Pros: It makes collaboration on various projects easy and clear. We always know who is working on what -- it minimizes confusion and is great for task management.

Cons: Wish it had a whiteboard that we could all work on at the same time - instantly. We have to jump to something else for this.

Overall: Ability to work smoothly as a team.

Pros: While GitLab pulls in many of the resources under one roof such as their internal tools that GitHub relied on from other vendors, like separate CI/CD, Trello, Wikis, etc. , I recently played around with it and found it to be incredibly slow and unreliable. In theory, it sounds really nice to have everything under one roof, but the bottom line is speed and reliability are important to me and therefore I will not use GitLab.

Cons: Why is CodePen using GitLab? Well, they mitigate some of the issues with hosted GitLab by using the on-premise version of GitLab. The problem there is it means they need to manage it themselves, which for some might be okay, but it isn't okay for us. We like having others manage our infrastructure so we can focus on what we do best, and other business productivity and learning related solutions. Managing servers is not our goal.

Pros: It offers a better navigation in terms of searching repositories, and managing the files so you can add your repositories.

Cons: They removed some of the useful functions that were in the github and added more options so you can separate your repositories, but this is a bit more confusing.

Overall: I mostly use this platform to search and use the repositories and integrate the codes I need for my website.

Comments: Great product!

Pros: GitLab is one of the most versatile repositories out there. The feature set is very rich with many customizable features like keeping a check on merges, easy to understand UI etc. which makes it quite great tool to use. 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.

Pros: GIT integration, it allows long group of people to contribute in a private project. All the needed modules to make a repository work (Branches, Pull Requests, Activity, Contributions). And my favorites: Issue tracking and Continuous Integration Pipelines.

Cons: Issue tracking can be improved: Maybe some integration with software like jira, basecamp, etc could come handy. More documents inclusion for evidence in issues creations.

Overall: I was part of a team that create the whole administration of several projects using Gitlab technologies

Pros: Have been using gitlabs as our remote repository for all our software development needs. The product is great and supports our Ajile development approach. Options to review the software and correct are also very helpful.

The pricing scale is reasonable, for as many users as necessary. APIs are great for introducing new ML features into your Dev Stack

Cons: Mostly a great product but is very similar to GitHub, Auto DevOps needs improvement also additional features around collab and source code management can make the product more robust

Pros: Ability to install it in premises without exposing all your code on a public IP. Some of our clients have requirements that their code repo should be not accessible from outside the organization and GitLab is a perfect answer for this.

Cons: GitLab CI pipeline has still a long way to go. Other competitors are quite ahead of GitLab when it comes to CI.

Pros: Sure Gitlab manages your git repositories with unlimited private projects and collaborators, but it does so much more: issue tracking, time management, publishing, tagging, and analytics. That's just the free side of things. Ramping up from there is super affordable. Great solution - will be using it more in the future.

Cons: There's not really anything I'd change with GitLab except for perhaps more deployment functionality? Looking forward to using this more.

Overall: Great features and starting out at free with affordable pricing beyond that. We started using Gitlab a builder startup and have been loving it since - great Git functionality but really like the milestones and search functionality.

Pros: It's open source. It's free. What could be more generous than offering unlimited private repositories for free tier? There are a lot more features for free as well, such as CI/CD pipelines, time trackers, review app that's really fit into our workflow, Git LFS, etc.

Cons: It's one of the best out there. There is zero thing I dislike about this software. One would say it has a smaller community, but this is unfair as it comes to the market later, and it takes time for people to switch over.

Pros: Gitlab is a very intuitive web-based tool for managing git repositories. It has a lot of cool features that add to the standard cool-ness of git. There is a nice way of managing contributors and merge requests and the possibility to use CI and testing-pipelines on your projects.
You can do a lot with the free plan and if you are in a relatively small team don't really need the paid plan.
When there are problems with the website, the support team is very transparent about it and keeps us users informed what is going on.
Gitlab is open source so you could host it yourself, for some enterprise-functionality you have to aquire a licence. However the free community edition has a lot of features with which you can work without any problems.

Cons: Their problem management and communication about them is great, however there are some problems (with partial downtime or significant speed loss) occasionally, which is noticable.

Overall: A nice frontend for git with a lot of additional features.

Pros: Easy to use if you are familiar with Git. Review security issues relatively quickly. It has its own collaborative workflow. In it we can also find projects related to the areas that we like to work and collaborate in, also has the ability to use the version of the published projects and implement them in your project if necessary.

Cons: the speed of sending data sometimes gets a little slow due to the amount of connection that the project has, working in an environment with a large group makes it difficult to use this medium because sometimes it causes an additional conflict that does not send on time the data corresponding to the equipment.

Overall: working with github has brought me many benefits because in it I can develop my team's project and find versions with which I can work and integrate my projects.

Pros: Very simple and effective. Setting up a pipeline is immediate. It is pretty documented and also newbie can approach a good result in short time. Issue and agile management of a project is a big plus and recent capabilities to monitor project performances are impressive.
It is powered by docker containers and kubernetes and this make isolation and a sort of orchestration possible and easy.
People can focus on their own objective rather than spending time understanding the tool.

Cons: It is based on a project centric approach, but here the project is a single piece of code. Orchestration and release automation for complex scenarios must be delegated to other professional software. Standardisation of projects is not obvious since a pipeline refer to a single project. Environments refer to a single instance of an application. They are great but they do not easily correspond to what an environment usually means: an aggregation of nodes and software instances connected to each other.

Overall: A free way to be effective and to go straight to your goal. Lot of work is saved by this tool with respect to other similar solutions. This software is stable, you can install it wherever and it will work. You can upgrade it whenever with no surprise. Very nice tool. Forrester recommendations are all deserved.

It's intuitive and easy to use.
The thing I like the most is the issues manager that allow us to link features to measurable tickets.

Cons: Sometimes It's buggy when trying to access a merge request, linking to other page instead of the merge request code, that has been my only dislike.

Overall: This has been for my one of the best alternatives related to repository management, I would say that this is my 2nd best choice when using related software.

Another benefit is that I have been collaborating with other team member easily.

We were using github before and we switched into gitlab, and this is one of the best move we made.

The general workflow is similar enough to Github that most developers find it familiar. In fact there is probably feature parity or beyond, so other than needing another account there has never been much resistance to adoption among our developer team. At the same time the interface well designed enough for non developers to figure it out and stay involved as well.

Cons: The setup and update process is somewhat cumbersome on bare metal (probably easier using dedicated virtual machines and/or their omnibus package). There are a lot of dependencies and assumptions about the environment that make it much the most dreaded package to upgrade on my production servers.

It does kind of make assumptions about workflow that don't hold true for all projects. While it is flexible enough to adapt even when using only a subset of features on a project, it can leave people a little confused and overwhelmed because all the other unused bits are still around in the interface.

Pros: I like so many things about Gitlab. Continuous integration with Gitlab runners, the Gitlab pages, the webhook system, the fact that it comes with a Mattermost instance

And the fact that it continously gain features with each monthly release it's like Christmas presents every month!

Cons: Well, the backup of Gitlab takes time, and it sometimes slows down the server. But hey! Security first! And it's not the fault of the software if we host a lot of people and projects.

Overall: The more we use the continous integration, the more development is easy for us. We manage to create a workflow that allow non-tech people to contribute to HTML code, knowing that it will be valid HTML code thanks to CI.

We also use the continous integration to automatically deploy softwares on our infrastructure, reducing our workload.

Pros: The interface is clean and modern. It is easy to navigate and every option is in a logical place. The GitLab team is working very hard on updating the application, adding new features, improving the interface etc. and they are generally very good in updating customers about these changes. They also regularly send out security updates and information, which is very comforting for us as users.

Cons: Although the updates are helpful or improve something, the number of them, along with the fact that the changes they incorporate on the front-end are quite big, often mean that it takes me a few days to adjust to the changes of an update as I am looking for where certain features have been moved. In the end it is a minor inconvience, but I would appreciate less changes to user interface management.

Overall: This software versioning system is very easy to use and allows us to have confidence in the fact that our software is always safe and protected.

Pros: My primary software SDLC is Atlassian's jira, bitbucket/stash. A very good set of software, but all are individual products . A trial of Gitlab seems to combine everything into one package. Its just all here! Some things really have potential to help boost productivity, such as GitLab's built-in Continuous Integration. Docker integration might be "one" reason to sway IT mind towards GitLab.

Cons: IT departments tend to hand on "industry powerhouses" such as Atlassian. This meant that we were unfamiliar with GitLab. Not as much info out there to help you figure things out. But, this is changing...as people hear about and use GitLab, it may soon be the market leader?

Overall: Need to learn more about the software, but it seems to have it all in one package. Very interested in docker integration as this could lead to automatic deployment of our code into test environments. this is a huge time sink currently to manage environments.

Cons: It takes time to get used to it if you've been used to CLI git and GitHub but IMHO it's worth the switch, especially if your team has noobies with any regulatory as it's easier to learn from the get go.

Pros: We are just implementing and trying this product out so far the feature that stands out the most is the integration service GitLab CI which can run automated tests after each commit and also automated staging deployments once those tests have run successfully. This is very useful for our testing servers and saves us lots of time since we do not have to manually do this process every time. It basically comes with all the functionality of git which we use at our company which is great. We started using issue tracking which is useful for pointing out bugs in the software so the right developer can fix it.

Cons: UI is a bit clunky for users, to many clicks for simple tasks. Mattermost is the choice integrated chat, I would rather have slack.

Overall: We are trying to pull all our processes together into one platform (Version control, issue tracking, planning, automatic builds, code reviewing). We realized GitLab does fill some requirements but I feel GitHub is the better option.

Pros: Has a ton of features included for free, including CI/CD, container registry, and wiki. Free private repos is really great too. They've had growing pains (see cons) but show more transparency than almost any other company I've seen and are quick to fix issues.

Cons: The frontend can be buggy at times, backend has had some high profile critical incidents

Overall: Private repos. Batteries included git repo software.

You can never find anything you're looking for . . .

Pros: The software is intuitive and incredibly easy to use. Since many software development projects require more than one person, Git makes it easy to create teams and collaborate. Git notifies you of all project updates and allows for real-time communication. In terms of managing projects, Git is incredible value in terms of a monetary ROI.

Cons: Despite all of GitLab's positive features, the lack of even a middling search engine renders the product's value as potentially negligible. Unless you input a perfect string of search words, you will never find the engineering ticket. i.e. If I create a ticket titled "Add extra fields for phone numbers for contacts", Git will only be able to find the ticket if I type the exact string. If I type two or more words, such as "phone numbers" or "fields for contacts", Git will not yield a result. If I type in only word, such "extra", then Git will return hundreds of possible entries that have used the word "extra". Even if you know the ticket number, you can't search for it successfully. In other words, when I need to learn the status of an engineering ticket, I need to find an engineer who literally has all the tickets memorized.

Pros: Has all the support tools I need in one neat package, replacing Jira, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Confluence and my static hosting site. For free (although I think it being a free service is only for a limited time now).

Communication when things go wrong is adequate, through twitter.

Cons: * It can be quite buggy at times, though its a known that it is a product in development.
* Although it does contain alot of tools, they are all not quite as strong as competing tools, the integration raises their value though

Overall: Its a free tool that encompasses all of my software support needs.

Pros: The developer team was the best! Always doing an improvement to the software and still free!!
And every millage, we got a new system integration.

Cons: Some times, a little, the system stay out. This could be a problem if you are non-profit organization. But, is a small problem.

Overall: It works!! And do what it say!

All this is free?!

Pros: At its most basic, GitLab is a Git repo hosting service. And if you just use it for that, you'll be just as happy with it as with GitHub or Bitbucket. There aren't any stand-out pros or cons.

But it really shines in the 'what you get for free' and the 'extra features' departments. The free hosted version gives you unlimited team sizes and private repos. They also throw in Docker-based continuous integration agents (again for free). And you can download and self-host their community edition, which has almost all the features a development team would need.

Cons: Their hosted version is a bit slow at times (much improved over a few years ago though). They've had a couple 'fail whales' over the past year too

Pros: I can not help but highlight the following advantages for which I love this product:
1) simplicity to install and use from the box
2) great stable functionality
3) many settings for advanced users
My development team just can not work without this product!

Overall: We have already implemented more than 10 projects using this product and just can not imagine how to do without it

Pros: It comes with clean interface, and a lot of features. It's blame/history views are great and the graph feature visualizes team's commit activity, which is useful as well.

Cons: The newest interface isn't the best to use, I prefer the previous version. The new interface(dashboard) lists repos with most recent activities, something most users would not care about.

Our company likes and uses it everyday

Pros: We are using self hosted system. It is easy to install, maintain and use. A lot of features. Frequent updates with even more features.

Cons: If to be very picky, they could do CI easier to setup and use. It is not that obvious from the very beginning.

Comments: It allows me to collaborate with colleagues on a per project basis very easily when I need extra help. It has solved my cost issues for my needs by being free.

Pros: I like the available suite of tools. I can host any type of repository free of charge. Free unlimited cloud, on premise option, if you want something done you can make it and collaborate it.

Cons: The user interface and management is a little clunky. You have to manually browse to the file structure if you wish to see it.

Pros: easy to use for CI /CD process. Ssh key security unlimited private repos. user groups and privileges.it provides free private repositories.it is open source.

Cons: search functionality is not refined. UI is very complex and hard to understand. Supports only Git version control system.

Great, but missing some features.

Comments: It would be awesome to build out the profile view a bit more. I lead a team of developers and we use Gitlab and really like it for its privacy and ease of use, but because our repos are private we are unable to showcase our profile views on our portfolios etc. This has pushed me to split usage between gitlab and github. Gitlab for work / github for my private repos / gists / etc.

Pros: Price, private repos, ease of use for teams, (almost) all the features of github. We use gitlab for all of our client repos and it works great. Setting up teams and getting up and running is fast and easy. We've also looked into the option of self hosting gitlab on our own servers, but the web service is so good we haven't felt the need yet. UI is nice as well. Anyone familiar with github can easily jump in and enjoy gitlab.

Cons: Not as much community, profile view is not as robust / flushed out as gitlab. Feels private. Love the ease of private repos but that seems to be the main thing users are utilizing and there is less open source projects on gitlab. Also the profile view is not as well known as gitlab and there isn't the option to showcase private commits on your commit chart, which is a bummer.
