I'm streaming on Twitch right now. You should stop by. Let's go!

Hosting my own git repositories


I've run my own personal git service for several years now. Previously, it was with cgit on nginx and gitolite. I then modded cgit with some password maintenance features. After a while, I tried using several more "modern" git repo hosting solutions, and I've finally settled on gogs, the Go Git Service.

The reasons I've landed on gogs include:

  • It's compact and simple - installs and upgrades are a breeze thanks to Go
  • It includes SSH git-pack-receive support out-of-the-box
  • It has GitHub-like features such as issues, comments, pull requests, and more

I've taken the liberty of pushing copies of all of the repos I care about on GitHub over to my gogs instance. Any of those that I still update will be pushed to GitHub as well, but I'm trying to make gogs my primary repo source from here on out.
