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.
- 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.
Throughout the last year, I have worked part-time as a working student and also studied at the university. I was not the first and not the last one who has combined that during their studies, but the problem for me was, that at the end of the day I have felt absolutely exhausted mentally and physically. That caused problems with my health and motivation to continue working on my goals or anything. (yeah, “goals,” I wish I had something more specific at that time).
