    Pros
    I feel like a professional developer using it, my code is always backed up and up to date on a beautiful web user interface. I love how the badges look and how it feels colorful.
    It is a great collaborative tool that allow us to manage the projects and ensure the progress is on schedule. The reporting function is very helpful for the communications within the organization.
    It's an awesome tools, perfect both small projects on a budget or for large applications that need paid features and great support.
    Cons
    Sometimes , build fails after delay of 20-30 minutes and then i get to see the error. This is obvious that it needs to reach that stage first before displaying the error.
    Some features are missing and that's what's missing compared to the direct competitor.
    It lacks some features, and sometimes the menus are really confusing and hard to navigate. There have been some occasional crashes too when you need to restart your server to get it up again.

    Developer friendly CICD

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Gitlab, it is the best CICD and Source control, I ever used. I feel it's even better than GitHub. It makes our lives easier and convenient.

    Pros

    Gitlab offers excellent user friendly interface and has literally no learning curve. I love how its script is well organised and easy to develop. It supports docker for each stage, which creates us a stable environment for the builds and tests.

    Cons

    I cannot think of cons in Gitlab. Only thing is that the pipeline is just developer friendly, we could really use a interface to design the pipeline for non-programmers or new comers.

    GitLab - Outil de gestion de projets

    Reviewed 12 days ago

    Selon mon experience, j'ai utilisé GitLab afin de créer des répertoires privés gratuitement. GitLab a fournit aussi un support et un outil de livraison de projets.

    Pros

    Le plus apprécié dans ce logiciel est que ca fournit gratuitement des répertoires gratuits privés. Ainsi, GitLab dispose d'un système de gestion de projet complet avec toutes les fonctionnalités nécessaires afin de déployer n'importe quel projet. Aussi, GitLab est très flexible dans la collaboration ou la mise à jour du travail ou des tickets.

    Cons

    Le moins apprécié dans ce logiciel est que l'interface utilisateur UI est un peu lente que les autres systèmes. Ainsi, il y a un peu de cas ou le temps réel n'est pas gérer.

    The first step to using Git on your computer is from this tool

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I think it's good that you can use it in basically the same way as GitHub, and that you can manage it by making use of your existing knowledge. Also, I think it's nice that GitLab has unique features that are easier to use, such as a feature that changes the display of the file icon for each file extension.

    Pros

    Using Git as a configuration management tool is already common sense (essential), but I think this software is the most used for remote (distributed) development. There are many cases where you install Git on each person's terminal and operate the commands, but if it is team development and you can't use an "external (public Internet) repository", it is better to set up and operate a Git repository with GitLab I think it will be the safest and standard way to use Git.

    Cons

    I guess there is no choice but to get used to it, but I would like to see more visual changes and expressions (messages) when conflicts occur that are easier to understand for beginners. After all, I'd like to see them develop an interface that makes it easier to understand the concept of Git configuration in the first place.

    Best DevOps tool for project management and source control

    Reviewed 19 days ago
    Pros

    I've been using GitLab as my DevOps platform for the last few months and I can't recommend it enough. The UI is so simple and easy to use. It's a great way to get started with automation and CI/CD. The idea behind the product is that it should be simple, intuitive and fast to use. GitLab has made our lives so much better and we couldn't be happier with it!

    Cons

    Everything is good in GitLab. If they can improve solution for file conflict, it would be good
