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

    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the UI by following a Material You-like interface called Gitea Modern, don’t know if it’s still holding up since it’s been archived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.
