While online Git services such as GitHub and Gitlab certainly offer great services for fully open source projects, they are prohibitively expensive for private development projects. The notion of storing the organisational bread and butter on a 3rd party infrastructure might not sit too well with many organisations either.
Gitea offers the solution to these issues, with a free, open source and flexible self-hosted Git service. Developed with Go, it has no runtime dependencies and offers high performance while having minimal hardware requirements. It’s so lightweight, a Raspberry Pi is enough to get started.
With its rising popularity, more and more developers have added support for CI/CD, such as Drone, Agola, Woodpecker, Buildkite and mvoCI. Gitea makes Git and DevOps available for organisations of all sizes, without the enterprise price tag. Find out more about Gitea.
