Wonderful. I was thinking of how to accomplish this last night when I had zero desire to use GitLab to host a small repo I was working on. Thanks for sharing!
When I was searching for private git hosting software and decided on GitLab, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to install Ruby (which I barely use) and Gitlab. Rvm made it a breeze - I didn’t want to install ruby system-wide, and this made it almost as simple as nodejs with nvm.
But, Gitlab does come filled to the brim with stuff that I don’t really use. So I agree that GitLab is probably overkill. Earlier versions were great, and even though it still is, if it were today I would probably not choose it for the stuff I’m hosting: I leave most of its features unused and it’s become way too advanced for my use case.
Indeed. For what I was doing (simple JWT server on a Pi for a hobby project) I just felt the overkill was needless. Storing the repo somewhere locally where I could push and pull was all I wanted.
Nice additions to this setup include
I’d also add RhodeCode to that list
