#5: Bitbucket

Bitbucket doesn’t offer self hosting but you can use its private respositites for free if your team has under 5 users. It has a lot of similar functions as Github and should be a welcome alternative for folks with a smaller team.


#6: Kiln

#7: Codeplane

Codeplane is a minimalist version of Github. It is not free but it is cheap enough to be practically free. Codeplane charges only USD9 per month with unlimited private repositories so it is ideal for developers with lots of side projects. .

    I dont think that they stay in competition against Github is the best site for developer and designer’s community. Though nice to know other websites.

    Hey Ali,

    it’s a great list of alternatives, but it would be nice if you could compare some of these to the actual GitHub itself – as I’m finding it hard to just take and switch over from something that I have been using for so long.

    Thanks for the awesome list, got a few new platforms to explore!
