Integrate your GitLab with TimeCamp for Time Tracking


GitLab — what does it offer and how can Time Tracking software enhance it?

GitLab is an open source online and self-hosted service. It provides all the necessary means to manage Git projects. GitLab includes Git repository management, issue tracking, code review, an IDE, activity streams, wikis, and more. The GitLab Enterprise Edition offers LDAP group sync, git hooks, automated testing, and audit trail, equipping administrators with user management capabilities without imposing on developers’ workflows.

It is very popular among huge companies and organizations that want a powerful Git hosting service they can put under their control or as an alternative to other services offering Git management. It has a built-in CI and CD to test, build and deploy code. The progress of tests can be easily monitored, and users can build pipelines — the code is going to be tested across multiple environments.

The software was written by Dmitriy Zaporozhets from Ukraine. The code is written in Ruby; it is used by more than 100.000 organizations including NASA, Alibaba, Invincea or CERN. On May 2016, the company had 100 salaried employees and more than 1300 open source contributors.
