Two weeks ago I saw a post about this new
open source end-to-end software development platform with built-in version control, issue tracking, code review: this post. I signed up to see what does this new platform look like. And after two weeks I can give my mind.
⚠️ I'm only 15 yo, my English isn't perfect and I want to improve it so if you notice a language error, say it in a comment. ⚠️
- It is new and open source
I don't know if it's an argument but in my mind, that's very important.
I love open source alternatives. This is based on Gogs which is self-hostable.
- Simple user interface
The first thing I noticed is the user interface, so simple and so easy to understand, okay some people can say it is a copy paste of the Github's design but that's not a problem for me.
Gitote is made with the concerns of the social. There is an Explore page which is absolutely amazing I discovered a lot of good projects especially Just Another shell or Full Tilt Bash.
- No unit testing service
That's a big problem for me, I need unit testing but today if you want to use a unit testing service you will have to create a mirror on Gitlab/Github.
EDIT: Gitote is setting up a drone-ci instance.
- I don't know but I have to find other negative points
I don't say you should use it instead of Gitlab/Github/Bitbucket but you should still try Gitote. I forgot to mention that I am remote intern at Gitote but I said all the things I thought about it good or bad.
There is not a lot of people for now on Gitote but I think the popularity is only a matter of time.

Thank you for the review Erwan. I too say the original post and was curious of Gitote.
As for the grammar:
Overall though, nice article.
Thank for this reply, I'll edit my post to fix those little errors.
Dude, awesome resource even if you shilling for them :P
Though I would say you seem more than honest and honestly its not like you are racking in mucho dinero interning for an extremely new site such as that.
I was instantly attracted to the "Useful Explore" potential. Wow it is actually useful. I will be forking and modifying for a while now. Thank you!
PS still want to write an article
I want to performto should be
I want to improve🙂
Cool, Thanks 🙏 for sharing and making gitote.in Great!
I'm happy to contribute to this amazing project 😉
Nice! Thanks for sharing this! 👍 I always want to see an alternative to the Big 3 (GitHub/GitLab/BitBucket), even if it's very similar. I'll be keeping an eye for this as it develops further.
