Here are a few alternatives to the GitHub hosting service. There are two types of software: locally installed software and hosted. These are decent for smaller companies that don’t have the budget for licensing a hosted service.
Free Local Install
- gitlabhq.com – this project looks really good, with new releases every month.
- gitorious – solid, free alternative to GitHub.
- gitorious.org – open source projects are free, like github.
- bitbucket – unlimited free private repositories for up to 5 users. The pricing model is similar to the other Atlassian products.
Special thanks to Aaron for the links to gitorious and gitlabhq.
