GitBucket Gitter chat Build Status

GitBucket is a Git platform powered by Scala offering:

  • Easy installation
  • High extensibility by plugins
  • API compatibility with GitHub

Features

The current version of GitBucket provides a basic features below:

  • Public / Private Git repository (http and ssh access)
  • Repository viewer and online file editor
  • Issues, Pull request and Wiki for repositories
  • Email notification
  • Account and group management with LDAP integration
  • Plug-in system

If you want to try the development version of GitBucket, see the Developer's Guide.

Installation

GitBucket requires Java8. You have to install it if it is not already installed.

  1. Download the latest gitbucket.war from the releases page and run it by java -jar gitbucket.war.
  2. Go to http://[hostname]:8080/ and log in with root / root.

You can specify following options:

  • --port=[NUMBER]
  • --prefix=[CONTEXTPATH]
  • --host=[HOSTNAME]
  • --gitbucket.home=[DATA_DIR]

You can also deploy gitbucket.war to a servlet container which supports Servlet 3.0 (like Jetty, Tomcat, JBoss, etc)

For more information about installation on Mac or Windows Server (with IIS), or configuration of Apache or Nginx and also integration with other tools or services such as Jenkins or Slack, see Wiki.

To upgrade GitBucket, replace gitbucket.war with the new version, after stopping GitBucket. All GitBucket data is stored in HOME/.gitbucket by default. So if you want to back up GitBucket's data, copy this directory to the backup location.

Plugins

GitBucket has a plug-in system to allow extensions to GitBucket. We provide some official plug-ins:

You can find more plugins made by the community at GitBucket community plugins.
