Using Gitea for Source Code Management


Many developers rely on Git in order to manage their products. Gitea is a source code repository similar to GitHub or GitLab. It’s an open-source service written in Go which deploys from a single binary and is very lightweight, allowing it to be run on relatively small machines. Running your own source code management service allows complete control of your projects from start to finish, from revision control to continuous integration and deployment.

With this tutorial series, you’ll learn how to install Gitea using Docker Compose, how to store your repositories on a separate volume, how to use Git hooks, and how to integrate various continuous integration and deployment services.

How To Store Gitea Repositories on a Separate Volume

Published on July 22, 2022 · Updated on July 22, 2022

Gitea is a popular source code management service that hosts your Git repositories.

This tutorial walks you through the steps of storing your Gitea repositories on a separate block storage volume.
