What is Gitblit?

Gitblit is an open-source, pure Java stack for managing, viewing, and serving Git repositories.
It's designed primarily as a tool for small workgroups who want to host centralized repositories.

GO: Single-Stack Solution

Gitblit GO is an integrated, single-stack solution based on Jetty.

You do not need Apache httpd, Perl, Git, or Gitweb. Should you want to use some or all of those, you still can; Gitblit plays nice with the other kids on the block.

This is what you should download if you want to go from zero to Git in less than 5 mins.

WAR: For Your Servlet Container

Gitblit WAR is what you should download if you already have a servlet container available that you wish to use. Jetty 6/7/8 and Tomcat 6/7 are known to work. Generally, any Servlet 2.5 or Servlet 3.0 container should work.

You decide how to use Gitblit

Gitblit can be used as a dumb repository viewer with no administrative controls or user accounts.
Gitblit can be used as a complete Git stack for cloning, pushing, and repository access control.
Gitblit can be used without any other Git tooling (including actual Git) or it can cooperate with your established tools.

All Transports

The SSH, HTTP, & GIT protocols are supported and ready-to-go out of the box.

Issue tracking with branch-based pull requests

Gitblit blends elements of GitHub, BitBucket, and Gerrit to provide a streamlined collaboration workflow based on branches within the primary repository.

Easy Remote Management

Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the Web UI.
Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the JSON RPC interface using the Gitblit Manager or your own custom tooling.
Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the command-line using SSH & the Powertools plugin.

Integration with Your Infrastructure

Backup Strategy

Gitblit includes a backup mechanism (*federation*) which can be used to backup repositories and, optionally, user accounts, team definitions, server settings, & Groovy push hook scripts from your Gitblit instance to another Gitblit instance or to a Gitblit Federation Client. Similarly, you can use the federation mechanism to aggregate individual workspace Gitblit instances to a common, centralized server.

Java Runtime Requirement

Gitblit requires a Java 7 Runtime Environment (JRE) or a Java 7 Development Kit (JDK).
