Github users - considering alternatives? Anyone looked into "radicle" yet?

I have to say ever since Microsoft got involved in github, I’ve been put off it. I wonder if any developers in this community have previously used github but started to migrate away from it?

I don’t know much about “radicle” yet, but it seems to be a peer-to-peer solution that might provide similar advantages to say, how mastodon is different from twitter. I would appreciate thoughts from experienced / informed individuals, with thanks :slight_smile:

Also… I wonder if there should be a “Developers” category in these forums.

The irony that their software is on github lol

Really love the p2p aspect and respect their site isn’t pulling in rando Google/bootstrap JS scripts.

While youtube-dl was pulled from Github I think they were using their own self-hosted GitLab.

I just use GItLab. If I ever make something big, I’d probably have mirror or GitHub or something.

I’ve been running Gitea on my server for personal projects and private mirrors. I’d probably just self host GitLab for a large project though. More then likely I’d try to see if Gitea could handle it first and then try GitLab.
