Who cares if nobody can work, the important is that those illegal streams are blocked

    Based

    …but this will realistically just spawn some new mirrors and proxies because the vast amount of projects hosted there definitely won’t ever move away.

    Anyway, I am doing my part! (With my irrelevant profile)

      the vast amount of projects hosted there definitely won’t ever move away.

      That’s what they said about Sourceforge though.

        Github probably won’t shoot themselves their userbase in the dick quite as spectacularly as Sourceforge did, though.

        To be fair there are still oodles of projects there. I end up on source forge regular basis.

          One of the reasons might be that the number of SVN hosting facilities has decreased over the past two decades.

          Oh, come on. It wasn’t that bad! At least it granted (and still grants) the freedom of choosing which VCS shall make your day harder than necessary.

        I guess. I haven’t lived through its golden age as a developer, but, seeing it now, anything would be better than Sourceforge IMO, so I would understand why people would move away even just for practical reasons

      I wonder why people favor codeberg so much over things like gitlab. It has an ugly UI from ancient GitHub…

        Codeberg is supposedly located in the EU while not requiring self-hosting, maybe that’s why.

          Codeberg is a free/nonprofit hosted instance of Forgeo. Forgeo is a fork of Gitea created by Codeberg about a year ago when the governance of Gitea changed suddenly.

          You can selfhost either Forgeo or Gitea.

          There are other hosted instances of forgeo and gitea also available.

          Gitlab is a hosted instance if gitlab.

          You can also self host gitlab.

          I assume there are other hosted instances of gitlab tho i cant think of any off the top of my head.

              What’s the point of a local git server? If you’re after that why not just use a regular Git repo?

                Easier ci/cd integration and viewing diffs from my phone on the toilet. Nothing I can’t do with regular git, it would just take more effort.

              Uh well idk you personally so hard to say.

              For me i like the remotely hosted ones.

              Lots of other people run gitea locally.

          Makes sense, though GitLab very much doesn’t require self-hosting

            I know, but most people are lazy these days (and self-hosting stuff in the EU has become a legal battle against every week’s new rules).

              I don’t think you understand what I mean. It has its “main instance” which most people use. It’s just open source so you have the option of self hosting.

        I was on GitLab for a time (and still keep the account for following stuff and maybe contributions), but felt it wasn’t as free and community focused as I would have liked to, so I decided to move away and went to Gitea (the hosted instance), shortly after I discovered Codeberg which aligns with my ideals even more, so I went to try it and it stuck.
        The UI isn’t that bad in my opinion and it’s more responsive than GitLab’s, so I appreciate it.
        Not to say that it’s the perfect platform of course, at least not yet, I miss GitLab for the easy actions/CI and deployment of pages, but I’m hoping that Forgejo actions will land soon enough and make things better.

        Note: recently I found out a userstyle that tries to modernize the UI by following a Material You-like interface called Gitea Modern, don’t know if it’s still holding up since it’s been archived

          Really gitlab went down the niche client path and no longer is a non Microsoft alternative? Sadge, at least I know about codeberg now.

            No no, don’t get me wrong, it very much still is, it’s really great for what it is, but for my own purposes it’s a bit too much maybe, and I never thought to come back also because I was, and still am, anticipating federation on Gitea/Forgejo, I didn’t expect that GitLab would add that in as well, so now that’ll be a moot point when the relevant merge requests do land

          It’s not bad per se, but it leaves a lot to be desired and I think it’s about as responsive as GitLab.
