Integration of GitLab and GitHub

In this article, I will compare and contrast GitLab and GitHub. I will examine the similarities between the two companies and the differences between their businesses. I will also look at GitLab and GitHub’s integration. The goal in examining these two companies is to determine which company is superior.

Body

Integration of GitLab and GitHub

GitHub was founded in 2008 by Tom Preston-Werner, Chris Wanstrath, and PJ Hyett (Sanger. The company started as a place for open-source projects to put their code. It quickly grew to be one of the most popular websites to use for software development. Two years after it was launched, GitHub was acquired by Microsoft for $7.5 billion (Sanger.

GitLab was founded in 2011 by Nathen Harvey and Dmitriy Zaporozhets (Harvey. The company started as a way for developers to manage projects that used the software called Git. Gitlab then became a platform for Git projects. Unlike GitHub, Gitlab is open-source; therefore, it does not charge its users for use of its product.

Gitlab offers many different kinds of services to its clients. Some of the available services include:

The Redmine project management software

Issue tracking software called Jira

Project management software called GreenHopper

Continuous integration software called GoCD

Code review software called Crucible

Gitlab also has a blog that provides tutorials on how to use its products. The blog posts cover a wide range of topics including:

How to use GitLab CE (Community Edition. and EE (Enterprise Edition)

How to set up continuous integration with Jenkins on GitLab

How to set up a build server with SSH keys on GitLab

How to set up an environment for development, testing, staging, and production with Docker on GitLab

How to use Logs for issues and merge requests with GitLab CE/EE.

How to create a marketing dashboard with Google Analytics on GitLab CE/EE.

All of these features make Gitlab more than just a place to host code; it is a complete development platform. With all of the features available on Gitlab, it seems that the company is better than GitHub due to the greater number of services it provides. In addition to providing more services than GitHub, the prices for using the services are less than the prices charged by GitHub for similar services. For example, for $9 a month users can access unlimited users, repositories, cplaborators, hosted CI or CD pipelines for open source projects on GitHub. On Gitlab, however, there is no such limit to how many users, repositories, or other features users can have; users only have to pay for what they use each month. This means that the price for using Gitlab is based off of the number of repositories and other features that users want to have access to. This type of pricing structure benefits people who want to use fewer features than those who need more features. This means that people who want few features are not required to pay for something they do not need while people who want more features are still able to get them at a low cost. These lower prices along with the greater number of features provide more value than GitHub; thus, making Gitlab superior to GitHub. In addition to being better than GitHub because it offers more services and lower cost services, it is also better because it is completely open-source unlike GitHub. This means that anyone can view the source code for any part of the program as long as they have access to it; this means that if bugs arise they can be fixed very easily. Also, since anyone can view the source code, improvements can be made quickly instead of waiting for changes from a third party; this results in better quality work being produced by users. All of these benefits make Gitlab better than GitHub. According to Alexia Felix from DevOps Guru. “The move from closed-source software products to open source ones comes with significant benefits … [open source] projects thrive on cplaboration with other projects …[and] provide better security through transparency” (Felix. All of these points show how open source software is much more beneficial than closed source software; therefore, showing how Gitlab is better than GitHub. Due to the advantages mentioned above, I conclude that Gitlab is superior to GitHub.In order for an online hosting service such as Gitlab or GitHub to become successful they must have some sort of integration with another product that is also successful. Integration allows the hosting service to expand into other markets; this helps generate more profits for the hosting service and allows them to grow even further. By integrating with other products these two companies will be able to increase their popularity and generate more income for their business partners and themselves. Although both companies are successful now they could become even more successful if they would integrate themselves with another product that will allow them to expand their market share and add new customers. After looking into how both companies are currently doing and how they could benefit from integrating with other products I concluded that Gitlab has a better chance at integrating with another product successfully than GitHub does because of the fplowing reasons. First, as mentioned before Gitlab has already done an integration with Atlassian’s Jira product (Gitlab. If users are already using Jira why would they not want to use a hosting service designed specifically for Jira? Since Gitlab has already done an integration with another product they could potentially do integrations faster than new companies trying to do so would; this means that they could gain new customers faster than newer companies trying to do integrations. Second, since Gitlab is open-source they already have many people working on improving their product; this allows them to improve faster than companies which are more private about their code like GitHub (TechCrunch. Because Gitlab has more people working on improving their product faster than a company like GitHub they will be able to bring out new integrations sooner; this means that when they release an integration it will be more advanced then those released by GitHub which will help them gain customers faster and allow them to expand further into other markets. Finally, according to Code Pulse. “One major way things differ between GitHub and GitLab is that GitLab is open-source and free…GitHub …is paid version built for teams” (Code Pulse. Since Gitlab is free people are more willing to try it out if they want an alternative to GitHub which requires payment. This fact gives Gitlab a huge advantage since they can get people interested in their platform without having to buy anything first; this allows people who are interested in using something like GitHub but would prefer something free like Gitlab instead have somewhere else where they can go that is cheaper and has similar features as GitHub. New integrations will help both companies grow exponentially by allowing them to reach new markets outside of their current ones thus increasing their revenue. Overall, I think that new integrations will be better for Gitlab rather than GitHub because of all of the advantages outlined above. In conclusion, I find that new integrations combined with existing integrations will prove advantageous for both companies in the future due to increased revenue generation and access into new markets; however, I believe that Gitlab will be more successful at integrating itself with other products due to its open source nature and ability to integrate faster than its competitor.
