Helmholtz GitLab available
The HIFIS Software team is happy to announce the general availability of the
Helmholtz GitLab which can be used free-of-charge
by anybody within Helmholtz and their partners.
It is hosted by HIFIS Software entirely on HZDR servers, jointly created by
UFZ and HZDR.
With the general availability of the Helmholtz Cloud, the service will be available as a fully integrated Hemholtz Cloud Service and will follow the given regulations.
How to access?
Visit https://gitlab.hzdr.de and login via the Helmholtz AAI. Your account will automatically be provisioned.
What do I get?
The service is running the Open Source version of GitLab. It allows you to
- Host code in repositories with Git version control,
- Implement project management with an Issue Tracker, Merge Requests or Issue Boards,
- Use the provided shared runners for built-in Continuous Integration,
- Host your Docker images using the Container Registry,
- Share your documentation or static websites with Pages or
- Share private or public software packages for a variety of common package managers, e.g. Conan (C++) or PyPI (Python).
Want to get started with Git and GitLab? Follow this link for a quick-start introduction.
We aim to be as open and transparent as possible while hosting the service. Therefore, we decided to manage the service via Ansible and to make the source code generally available. Thus, we allow you to reproduce, validate and understand the deployment of the service via this project together with the published Ansible roles.
