#self-hosting

Thanks, now I understand what you mean by single-user. 😊 What about writing your own git service? 🤣

Damn, no 🤣 What I like in Gitea is all the fancy integrations (container images, package registry), etc. If I end up self-hosting my Git repositories - or at least some of them - and not use Gitea, I will likely just use some kind of static website generator, like stagit.

What makes you think Gitea “is a primarily multi-user platform”? 🤔 Sure, Gitea can be multi-user, but works (IMO) perfectly fine as single-user as well. Probably even better as single-user as long as federation isn’t finished yet.

I don’t want user URLs, I don’t want organizations. I want something like git.hacdias.com/repo_name. There are workarounds, such as URL rewriting, or using an organization with a short name, to shorten the URLs. However, they are not real solutions. And having a single user mode is something Gitea will not support. But, never say never. I may consider using it later. For now, git.hacdias.com just redirects to my GitHub 🫢

Today I noticed my VPS did not have any firewall installed. Since I use Alpine, I decided to try out awall, which led to 15 minutes of down time for this website and all the remaining services. Besides, it seems that Docker messes with the IP tables by default, which can be troublesome with firewalls. In the end, I ended up using Hetzner’s own firewall which is completely decoupled from the OS and easier to manage.

I’ve been wanting to self-host my Git repositories for some time now. My problem with it is: collaboration. If I just decide to self-host, it’ll be much harder for someone to send a Pull Request, or something of the sorts. GitHub is the de facto of the industry and sadly there is not federation standard for these kind of platforms. I think Gitea is working on federation support, but at the same time I think Gitea wouldn’t necessarily fit my wants as it is a primarily multi-user platform.
