Android Studio

It is useful in the following scenarios.1. For Android development when you use Java as your front-end language.2. For Android development and Kotlin development when you use Kotlin as an alternative to Java as your front-end language.3. For Android development when you use Flutter and Dart as in your front-end development.4. For Java development.

GitLab

Gitlab is a great opportunity to "practice what you preach" if you are a shop that advocates the use of open source tools. Whether you use [Gitlab] or your own internal deployment, this tool offers good value for money (typically free in both cases for most organizations' needs). It would be less appropriate when an organization:
  1. Doesn't want to host their own revision control, for less hands-on DevOps
  2. Needs their code to be private/proprietary, and
  3. Already has existing products and workflows for Continuous Integration and project management
In this case, a company license for GitHub.com may make more sense.

Pros

Android Studio

  • Supports Gradle instead of Maven.
  • Debug mode is excellent.
  • Android Studio is not the unique product for Android development. IntelliJ IDEA is good for it too.
  • It is open source software.
  • No need to pay, free of charge product.
  • It supports big community of other android developers.
  • Provide Java to Kotlin code auto translation.

GitLab

  • Pipelines: Gitlab Pipelines is an excellent way to get started with pipelines easily and without much overhead. And with it being all encapsulated within Gitlab itself, it makes integrating your code into that pipeline even easier. Just a little bit of code and VOILA. You have at least a minimum viable pipeline.
  • VCS: Gitlab is, of course, a great version control system.
  • Usability: Gitlab has really put a significant amount of focus into usability. They've drilled down and ensured that the way companies and individuals need to use the tool, they can.
  • Groups: Gitlab makes setting permissions on projects extremely easy. Other version control systems make it more difficult to set things granular enough, but gitlab allows you to group things in a granular enough way for your projects.

Cons

Android Studio

  • Unlike Eclipse, Android Studio has no concept of a workspace. Each window houses only one project. It's not very easy to jump between projects.
  • Android Studio isn't lightweight. It consumes lots of memory and takes lots of time to perform certain tasks.
  • I frequently see ignorable messages telling me that Android Studio has encountered an error (an error in the IDE, not an error in my code). I've never bothered to find the source of these messages because the messages go away quickly, and they don't keep me from running my code.

GitLab

  • Third-party integrations. Many developer tools integrate deeply with GitHub, but lack support for Gitlab. Gitlab does have webhook support so it's possible to build your own integrations, but this can be time-consuming.
  • Gitlab's main competitor (GitHub) has a massive social network of coders and hosts nearly all popular open source projects. If you are looking for this type of community, Gitlab may not be for you.
  • Customer support & reliability. In the time I've used Gitlab, it's not uncommon to experience hours-long periods of downtime without any announcement or indication from the support team when it will be available again.

Gitlab is the best in its segment. They have a free version, they have open-source software, they provide a good service with their SaaS product, they are a fully-remote company since the beginning (which means they are fully distributed and have forward-thinking IMO). I would certainly recommend them to everyone.

The web console management is superior and I would have given Gitlab a 10, but sometimes it is hard to find documentation about a configuration setting in the gitlab.rb configuration file. As we move everything to code that means moving our CVS tools to code as well - and Gitlab to code. The usability of Gitlab from the end user's perspective is superior and the usability from the operations team is very good and getting better but there could be a little improvement in the gitlab.rb config file layout and documentation.

Overall support for Android Studio is quite good. As the project is maintained by Google itself, frequent updates are usually made to Android Studio to keep the IDE update and bug-free. Many community forums are also available to help developers across the world if they face any issue.

I will admit, being an enterprise Gitlab user may come with additional access to Gitlab support. With that said, I have found them to be very supportive and responsive when prompted with questions about the tool. The engineers I've worked with have been very keen to listen to feedback from my team and have taken it back as suggestions for improvements to the tool.

GitLab

Easy to use - The interface is almost similar to one of the competitors acquired by microsoft.Security - Security is well maintained as Basic Auth plus SSH options both are present and can be utilised organisation wise to improve the authorisation part.Cost effective - Its better compared to the other competitors out there in terms of cost for various team sizes.

  • 24x7 support from Google and JetBrains is making our work running 24x7 smoother, and making our clients happier and happier day by day.
  • Due to the awesome animation and transition tricks, we are providing our clients more than they expected.

GitLab

  • Developer salaries are very expensive, and this tool saves developer time, so I'd estimate at least $1000/month ROI per developer using this tool.
  • The CI interface can do wonders to improve release time and software quality. If you leverage this, there's a strong ROI here.
  • Part of our business relied on secure private source code hosting; GitLab is totally the right choice for that.
