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.

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.

Pros: The user interface is great and I really enjoy the CI/CD features. In addition we use the issue tracking, which has been helpful and easy to use.

Cons: It's not always apparent where menu options are in the responsive view. Also, it seems they iterate on small UI changes often which can throw off your workflow at first until you get used to the change.
