      Five alternatives to GitHub

      After confirming the acquisition of GitHub by Microsoft , many have raised the use of an alternative for fear of possible policies that could apply the giant Redmond (especially the so-called

       ).

      With the controversy in full boil, it seems that at the moment there will not be many projects that change service.Even so, we take the opportunity to remember five of the best-known alternatives , with both proprietary and open proposals. In MuyLinux we will not say which is better, but we will leave that decision in the hands of the users.

       

      GitLab

       has sounded lately, and that is possibly the strongest competitor that has GitHub for some time.

      The main advantage that GitLab has is the fact that it is free software, its code being published under MIT . This allows it to be bifurcated and reimplemented in its own server. On the other hand, its interface and way of functioning are similar to those of GitHub, although with the addition that it allows to create private repositories for free, something that can come very well to those developers who are not interested in exposing their code and do not want to pay for it.

      Other features are the ability to easily migrate from GitHub (something that is likely to be enhanced from now) and payment plans for those who do not want to invest in their own server.

      We can not forget that recently GNOME has completed its migration to GitLab , taking with it GIMP, which could help this service to gain followers among the public linuxero.

       is another interesting alternative to host code. Pertaining to the company Atlassian, it is proprietary, although it allows to create private repositories for free , besides supporting the import from GitHub .

      When belonging to Atlassian, it is strongly integrated with other project managers belonging to the same company, such as Jira, HipChat and Confluence, which makes it attractive for software developers. According to their plans, it is free for teams of up to five members, so it can come in handy as a starting point and then move on to payment plans once the project or company has increased in size.

      How could it be otherwise, GNU Savannah is totally free software and according to

       offers support for CVS, GNU arch, Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, mailing lists, web hosting, file hosting and bug tracking. It is currently divided into two domains: savannah.gnu.org for official GNU project software and savannah.nongnu.org for all free software not belonging to GNU.

      Its purpose is to support only free software projects , not allowing proprietary technologies such as Flash in its hosting policies.

       is one of the biggest cases of "phoenix" that have been seen in the history of software. Three years ago we echoed how the service was dying because of the excess of greed of its owners, who ended up making it a challenge for the integrity of their own users, especially Windows.

      Fortunately, a new address has returned this service to its place so that it returns to what it was . Obviously, advertising has not completely disappeared, because the company behind it has to live with something, but at least its policy is no longer aggressive with users and that is something to be thankful for. Currently, many relevant Open Source projects rely on SourceForce.

      Noteworthy is the recent redesign of the website, which has given it an attractive and modern look.

       , it is a self-storage Git service that tries to be easy to handle and features similar to GitHub, Bitbucket and GiLab, being the result of the Gogs fork.

      It is Open Source (published under MIT) and is written with

      conclusion

      Although the volume of both projects and active developers in GitHub is much higher, it is seen and proven that there are solid alternatives to this service that can cover the needs from different perspectives.

      As we said at the beginning, we are not going to say which is better, and obviously, here we have only put five examples, there being many other alternatives like

          GitDorker is a tool that utilizes the GitHub Search API and an extensive list of GitHub dorks that I’ve compiled from various sources to provide an overview of sensitive information stored on github given a search query.
          The Primary purpose of GitDorker is to provide the user with a clean and tailored attack surface to begin harvesting sensitive information on GitHub. GitDorker can be used with additional tools such as GitRob or Trufflehog on interesting repos or users discovered from GitDorker to produce the best results.
          Rate Limits
          GitDorker utilizes the GitHub Search API and is limited to 30 requests per minute. In order to prevent rate limits, a sleep function is built into GitDorker after every 30 requests to prevent search failures. Therefore, if one were to run use the alldorks.txt file with GitDorker, the process will take roughly 5 minutes to complete.

          GitHub just announced that its new code scanning feature, GitHub code scanning, is now generally available. The new feature of the developer platform that Microsoft bought in 2018 for 7.5 billion dollars can scan any public repository for vulnerabilities.
          The idea is to offer a native function within GitHub that can find vulnerabilities in the code of a repository before they reach production. If you have a public repo on GitHub, you can activate it from now on following the official documentation.
          Automated security as part of your workflow
          With the function active, the code will be revised as it is created, and areas that could be exploited in the future will be highlighted. At GitHub they hope that with this feature active they can catch bugs early to significantly reduce security incidents in the future.
          GitHub code scanning integrates with GitHub Actions or your existing CI / CD environment to maximize team flexibility. Scans code as it is created and displays actionable security reviews within pull requests and other GitHub experiences, all to automate security as part of your workflow.
          Before its launch, code scanning went through several months of testing. So far it has scanned 12,000 repositories 1.4 million times, and in total it has detected 20,000 security problems, from bugs that allowed remote code execution, through cross-site scripting, to SQL injection.
          During the tests the developers and those in charge of maintaining the repositories resolved 72% of the security flaws identified in their pull requests before merging after the first 30 days.
          This is important data since industry data shows that less than 30% of vulnerabilities are fixed within a month after being discovered.
