A good place to put your public repos.

2018-05-08

Pros

I believe the main thing that they have nailed in Github is the look and feel. You never have any issues with the layout, everything works and is placed where they are expected to be.

Cons

I would prefer to use bitbucket for the private repos which is free.

A must have Repo management for any developer

2016-12-09

Our team would be lost without Github, from managing current projects, and creating separate code bases and managing deployments to searching current code from other developers. A valuable resource for any developer. The Github community has evolved on its own, with other coders always willing to help

Pros

An invaluable resource for any developer, couldn't work without it.

Cons

no private repos for the free version, unlike BitBucket

Love to store my code in here

2019-02-21

my overall experience is that, is the best way to store the code, is easy, fast, safe and so popular so basically you always have support. The only thing is that the experience about the PR have a few issues.

Pros

1) Great way to share code and store projects. 2) Easy to use 3) Is the biggest code community. 4) I love that now you can have private repositories for free.

Cons

1) Make a Pull request is kind of complicated if we compare it to Bitbucket

GitHub has the best interface for managing your code online

2018-08-04

Then I switched to Bitbucket.

Pros

Simple and elegant UI for managing your codebase and working with other team members. Has an amazing community of open source projects. No one else comes close in this area.

Cons

No free plan for private repositories. Bitbucket and Gitlab provide the same for free.

Github - most powerful git remote

2018-10-14

I have been using GitHub for more than 4 years now and I didn't find any other alternatives or reason to switch to other platforms. For open source enthusiasts, GitHub is a very good platform to collaborate with developers across the globe.

Pros

Github has a very elegent UI for both desktop as well as mobile. Thus a beginner can also use it with ease. Also it provides wiki, issue tracking in built so that users don't have to depend on other trackers.

Cons

The private repo is a bit costly as compared to other sites such as gitlab or bitbucket.

Best repository manager

2019-04-03

It is one of the best repository in market.. much better than bitbucket

Pros

You can make unlimited repositories without any cost and each individual can work on his own branch and later code can be merged to single master branch.. so using this, multiple people can work simultaneously on their branch and later merge the code

Cons

Sometime in case of code conflict it becames hard to find solution. Moreover if you make private repository a payment option needs to be selected.

The de facto online repo for open source projects!

2018-05-26

Pros

I like how well it integrates with my client side version control software, and how easy it makes it for large communities to work on open source projects.

Cons

I wish it had free private repos like BitBucket, and wish all public repos were forced to pick a license.

The defacto Git repository

2019-01-15

Easy to use and super fast.

Pros

Now that Microsoft has opened up GitHub for free personal repositories there is no reason that everyone shouldn't use it. Super easy to use and fast. Plus it is the standard repository that most businesses use.

Cons

Doesn't connect to as many services directly in the ecosystem such as BitBucket which can hook directly into your build server.

Excellent way to store/view your git versions.

2018-01-17

Free nonprivate storage of git version controlled software.

Pros

An excellent place to view your git versions, and see other programmers' work. My favorite feature is that the README file is displayed on the front page of each repository, so programmers can put setup information in an easily readable place.

Cons

If your code has sensitive information, you should use BitBucket for free.

Great Cloud Git Repos

2019-03-29

Pros

It's not the cheapest option. Bitbucket is cheaper.

Best platform for sharing code!

2018-05-05

Pros

I like that there are so many pubic repositories within the Github platform. I can find pubically available code with examples and explanations about just about every thing I can think of to add to my projects.

Cons

For this reason I use Bitbucket for private projects and Github for public projects.

I've exclusively used Github for code repositories for several years now.

2017-11-15

It's an essential tool for storing and sharing code.

Pros

There's a reason Github is the most popular spot for online code repositories -- it's well organized, intuitive, and simple but powerful.

Cons

There's not much to complain about here, although you will have to pay to create private repos, something certain other sites (e.g. Bitbucket) allow for free

The best tool when working with a team

2018-12-10

I like bitbucket, gitlab and beanstalkapp, all of them are wonderful.

Pros

The code review process is just supber in Github, and that's where you spend much of your time when working on a team: code reviewing. Also the Gitflow management is just great with Github.

Cons

It wish it a free layer like some competitors, or a full suite of solutions like others. I guess they are trying to make it sustainable.

Great for Open Source

2018-10-10

Is always good to discover new repositories on Github and create Open Source Projects, because the tool give me all that functionalities that I need

Pros

Clean interface, great API, useful keyboard/text shortcuts. Search is awesome, with many filters. I always find what I want, and more!

Cons

They could allow the creation of at leat one private repository, because when I want to create it I have to use other source control tool, like Bitbucket.

I use GitHub every day for searching for Open Source products I use in my daily professional life. I am also using GitHub for my personal projects.

Pros

Too many integration out there Place to go for study some Open Source (and, of course, to contribute) Simple and user friendly UI Pretty quick website Desktop app Private repos now for free

Cons

Missing some built-in features like CI/CD, Code Quality tools that has both,GitLab and BitBucket, built-in For newbies interface can be a little bit overwhelming

Solid solution for Git/Codebase management for development teams

2018-10-03

We use GitHub for all of our development projects ranging from small to large. We have an agency account which allows us to add developers as sub-accounts, for easier team management.

Pros

GitHub is easy to adopt for development teams of any size, all the way up to enterprise. If your team is already familiar with Git, then GitHub offers everything you need to manage push/pull requests via command line, their website, or even a desktop (Windows) app. It also automatically integrates with various code editing programs such as Brackets, and Atom

Cons

The agency pricing can be a bit steep compared to other options such as BitBucket, etc.

Amazing tool for software organizations

2019-02-08

Overall I've been using GitHub for years and would highly recommend it for any company that is serious about software. It's well worth the price.

Pros

The UI is great. Really appreciate the ease of opening pull requests, creating issues on the issue tracker, and having everything in one place.

Cons

It's also somewhat expensive compared to the main competitors (GitLab, bitbucket, VSTFS etc)

The well known version control platform

2018-12-28

This is the version control tool I use for work, so this is like the 2nd most important thing I pay attention to (the first one is just my computer), this can save projects; so we cannot work without this.

Pros

I will skip telling about the git version control itself, we all know that it is the best for it. But what I like the most about github is the integration with 3rd party tools like slack, google, atom, etc.; this integration is perfect for creating automated build bots and this is super useful (and most sdk's, frameworks and tools that use github features have an easy integration of it).

Cons

If you don't need those 3rd party integrations, it is "hard" to tell that this is the best for git version control; compare to other cheaper (or free) alternatives (like bitbucket).

Perfect for your open-source libraries

2018-07-15

Pros

Love the UI, it's clean, easy to navigate. I've used to develop composer PHP packages. Integrates really well with Packagist. Developing and contributing to open source projects is easy.

Cons

It's a bit pricey for private projects so for those I use bitbucket because it's free.

Use it for Source Code Management and Version control for automation projects.

Pros

Cons

Switching between different branches is not as easy as in Github. It lacks in an effective Pull Request feature as provided by Github.

Pros

I get that the most popular repo out there is Github. But Bitbucket has most of all the features that Github has and it also has free private repos.

I think merge checking should be something you get as soon as you put down money. Their standard (paid) tier does not include it.

Pros

Free Private Repositories is the main benefit when compared to Github, possibly Jira is also of benefit but I have seen many project use Jira and Github rather than Bitbucket and Jira.

Best repository hosting service with free private repos and great companion tools

2018-12-06

It might also have a slight advantage over Github for hosting small projects, so it's a great service for small businesses that doesn't need all the additional collaboration tools that build over git repositories' native collaboration.

Pros

Private repositories available in free account. Ease of use. Tons of complementary tools from Atlassian, the parent company. Tight integrations with tools like Jira.

Collaboration and user interface aren't as polished as Github.

One of the best applications I have ever used.

2018-03-28

Reliable repository service.

Pros

I have been a bitbucket user from my first code repository. You never expect bitbucket to fail you, even with their model change they still kept their free tier. Also I really like the new pipeline which I was using since beta and the integration with the rest of the ecosystem like Jira and confluence.

Cons

Due to the focus of Jira and confluence it lacks a good issue reporting system like github. The discover ability and issue tracking of github is magnitude times better.

Great app.

2018-09-20

Pros

The best alternative to GitHub, At first it was a bit darkness but I got the concept really fast.

Cons

GitHub owns a lot more community, a lot more repositories.

I used Bitbucket daily as part of a tech team in the marketing sector.

A very solid alternative to Github that offers free private repositories.

Pros

While Github seems to be more popular and more established, Bitbucket was able to serve the same needs and -- bonus -- we didn't have to pay extra for private repos.

Cons

The Bitbucket community isn't nearly as robust as that of Github, and the interface can sometimes be tricky to navigate if you're not familiar with it.

Good OSS alternative to Github

Code revision management

Pros

This makes Bitbucket a strong competitor to Github and makes this a popular alternative to using Github.

Cons

I disliked the lack of a mobile app the most about this software. Atlassian doesn't directly provide an app to interface with their platform and there are only 3rd party solutions out there.

Worthy alternative to Github

Pros

Before Github launched this feature, it gave you free private repos.

Cons

Not as popular as Github, therefore not as many projects hosted.

Bitbucket is easily the best git interface and codebase management tool on the market.

2018-04-16

Move aside Github.

Pros

Bitbucket allows to my team to have unlimited private repositories for free. They only make you pay a very small out once your team is over 5 people. This is drastically better than Github's pricing model. I also really like the layout of the interface, and the ability to quickly import repositories from other competitors.

Cons

I have to find anything that I don't like about Bitbucket. I have never had issues with with the mine or the code of my clients being compromised. Everything seems to work smoothly. No complaints here!
