@vickysteeves We installed #Gogs as a test. It's a full featured free self hosted #git #server written in #go. It supports mirroring as well. IMHO more people should take a look at Gogs as well. #justMy2cents
@schaeferpp @vickysteeves Gogs and Gitea are both way more awesome than Gitlab IME. Gitlab replicates the functionality of Github, but if you don't need all of it, Gogs/Gitea is much lighter.
GitLab's functionality has exceeded GitHub's by miles. When was the last time you looked at it?
That said, cool, a light version! I'll give it a look.
@vickysteeves @stevelord @schaeferpp I'm waiting for activityPub to land in GitLab :D
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
