Folks: “just host your own GitLab”
Me upgrading GitLab today: Fails due to key expiration error. Fix that. Re-run upgrade. Fails due to Let’s Encrypt provisioning error. Reconfigure. Re-run upgrade. Fails due to database migration error (it’s just one of those “expected batched background migration for the given configuration to be marked as 'finished', but it is 'active'” errors (we all know what those are like, amirite?). Fix that. Re-run configuration. Works.
Now × by N “host your owns…”
@aral love it! I have the gitlab self host website opened on one of my tabs since I wanted to mess with that on the near future. But I also thought about just literally storing the .git (and siblings ofc) folder and serve them as static content under git.filipesm.com. They’re all open source anyway lol
My small contributions (get it?) are Plain Text Blog, Dirt Simple Photo Gallery, and Not Actually Plain Text Blog.
I just love writing simple programs with no interface that replace complicated behemoths. And I write them for me so I get exactly what I want.
@aral i’m not gonna come in here and say “oh you should try X instead.” but i have had so many issues trying to run gl locally. i love it at work but it’s a big piece of software and it needs more time and attention than i’m willing to give if i’m not being paid lol
