Codacy

Codacy is a great solution for any SaaS company that ships production code. I would say every situation is well suited for it if you care about quality code, catching potential security risks, and having a solid way to measure code test coverage across your stack. May not be as appropriate for a small non-revenue generating project.

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

Codacy

  • Automation - Regularly check-up for your code commits. For example, you push code to Git, it will automatically update your code ratings
  • Code Support - They support all major languages, for example, Python, PHP, JAVA. Thus, it becomes fast and easy to get real-time quality for your code.
  • Analytics - Intuitive UI and easy dashboard give a clear display of your codebase.
  • Reach - Codacy is very popular and the only good source of code quality solution.

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

Codacy

  • Could be faster.
  • Sometimes settings configuration pages are overwhelming.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Codacy

Codacy provides a good support mechanism and has very intuitive UI. Even a newbie can understand the details of a code base. The best part is you don't have to manually update everything. Once you have connected the git repository, it will automatically rate the code and updates according to your commits.

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.

Return on Investment

Codacy

  • The best part after implementing the tool is that we now stand a benchmark. Our clients are more than happy to have a good quality of code.
  • Increased efficiency, decision making, code reach, privacy, and standards which means it is easily acceptable internationally.
  • Even you enter private information in a piece of code, it automatically asks you to remove any vulnerable information which can harm your privacy.
  • Pricing is a bit high for personal customizations.

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.
