The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest, and most painless way of setting up a self-hosted Git service. Using Go, this can be done with an independent binary distribution across all platforms which Go supports, including Linux, macOS, and Windows on x86, amd64, ARM and PowerPC architectures. Want to try it before doing anything else? Do it with the online demo! This project has been forked from Gogs since 2016.11 but changed a lot.
From the root of the source tree, run:
TAGS="bindata" make build
or if SQLite support is required:
TAGS="bindata sqlite sqlite_unlock_notify" make build
build target is split into two sub-targets:
make backendwhich requires Go 1.17 or greater.
make frontendwhich requires Node.js LTS or greater and Internet connectivity to download npm dependencies.
When building from the official source tarballs which include pre-built frontend files, the
frontend target will not be triggered, making it possible to build without Node.js and Internet connectivity.
make -j <num>) is not supported.
NOTE: If you're interested in using our APIs, we have experimental support with documentation.
Expected workflow is: Fork -> Patch -> Push -> Pull Request
Translations are done through Crowdin. If you want to translate to a new language ask one of the managers in the Crowdin project to add a new language there.
You can also just create an issue for adding a language or ask on discord on the #translation channel. If you need context or find some translation issues, you can leave a comment on the string or ask on Discord. For general translation questions there is a section in the docs. Currently a bit empty but we hope fo fill it as questions pop up.
For more information and instructions about how to install Gitea, please look at our documentation. If you have questions that are not covered by the documentation, you can get in contact with us on our Discord server or create a post in the discourse forum.
