Install a development environment

To work on GitLab itself, we recommend setting up your development environment with the GitLab Development Kit. If you do not use the GitLab Development Kit you need to install and setup all the dependencies yourself, this is a lot of work and error prone. One small thing you also have to do when installing it yourself is to copy the example development unicorn configuration file:

cp config/unicorn.rb.example.development config/unicorn.rb

Instructions on how to start GitLab and how to run the tests can be found in the getting started section of the GitLab Development Kit.

Software stack

GitLab is a Ruby on Rails application that runs on the following software:

  • Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS/RHEL/OpenSUSE
  • Ruby (MRI) 2.4
  • Git 2.8.4+
  • Redis 2.8+
  • PostgreSQL (preferred) or MySQL

For more information please see the architecture documentation.

UX design
