Awesome git addons is yet another one of those curated awesome lists. This time it’s for git version control tool. And once again, it’s mind blowing.
Git itself is a very flexible and powerful tool. But it truly amazing how far some people take it. In the list you can find anything from aliases for complex commands, to full-featured integrations with GitHub, git flow process, deployment tools, and much more.
sr.ht – pronounced “sir hat” – is a new competitor in the world of GitHub, BitBucket, and GitLab. Much like all of these, you can either self-hosted it or use a managed service. It might not yet be as fancy, polished, and cool (I think they need a better name and the domain) as its competitors, but there are a couple of reasons that might make a difference when making a choice:
Open Source. From a quick look, sr.ht is distributed under the GNU Afero GPL.
Modular. The suite consists of the following components:
git – git repository hosting service
build – continuous integration service
lists – mailing lists service
todo – ticketing system / bug tracker
dispatch – task dispatcher and integration service
Gitea is yet another alternative to BitBucket, GitHub, and GitLab Cloud. It’s an open source solution for self-hosting Git repositories. It’s a fork of Gogs, written in Go, and is available under the MIT license.
Sure, things could have been done better. But it’s easier said than done. Modern technology is very complex. And it changes fast. And businesses want to move fast too. And the proper resources (time, money, people) are not always allocated for mission critical tasks. One thing is for sure, the responsibility lies on a whole bunch of people for a whole bunch of decisions. But the hardest job is right now upon the tech people to bring back whatever they can. There’s no sleep. Probably no food. No fun. And a tremendous pressure all around.
I wish the guys and gals at GitLab a super good luck. Hopefully they will find a snapshot to restore from and this whole thing will calm down and sort itself out. Stay strong!
And I guess I’ll be doing test restores all night today, making sure that all my things are covered…
