Likelihood to Recommend

GitLab

In the case where there are large groups of functionally related but modular coding projects, [GitLab] provides the capacity for organizational structure and optimum search functionality. Merge requests offer an environment well suited to ongoing conversations due to seamless and visible commenting functionality. For analysis of existing code, the absence of navigation capability makes for a somewhat cumbersome experience at times.

Gradle

Gradle is an ideal tool to build an application that is complex and/or distributed. It is well suited for builds that use a CI engine such as Jenkins or Bamboo, and a repository such as Artifactory.

Pros

GitLab

  • It uses the well-known Git language to communicate with, which is very popular
  • The interface is slick and easy to get used to
  • They are very transparant in their security issues
  • Updating the software from the command line is the easiest I have come across

Gradle

  • Build Cache - Enables quick build on dev machines
  • Supports multi project builds - enabling modular architecture
  • Customizable build tasks
  • Support for multiple JVM languages

Cons

GitLab

  • GitLab could improve some of the confusion around how permissions work (sometimes unclear why one user can do an action, but not another)
  • GitLab should provide a way to rerun a merge pipeline, without rerunning the original Merge Request pipeline
  • When jobs fail, it would be awesome if every user could see the information on the runner and the versions of the software it is running on (to better debug the issue)

Gradle

  • Still under development, not as mature as Maven
  • Build files aren't as easy to follow because they are so loose
  • The community isn't as large as Maven

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.

Usability

GitLab

GitLab 9.0
Based on 4 answers
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 have tried to use Gradle for projects several times in the past, but there is just so much work in maintaining the build file that it quickly becomes untenable. I have been using Maven for many years, and even though the build file can be complex, it works without maintenance between releases.

At this point, I do not have much experience with Gitlab support as I have never had to engage them. They have documentation that is helpful, not quite as extensive as other documentation, but helpful nonetheless. They also seem to be relatively responsive on social media platforms (twitter) and really thrived when GitHub was acquired by Microsoft

Gradle has been an excellent tool for Android development. It has helped us create multiple versions of the app for different environments. It also takes care of all the packaging needs in the background without having to write all the code related to that. It is a no brainer to use Gradle with Android applications.

Alternatives Considered

GitLab

There are similar features among others. However, GitLab [has] better security and faster flow of information. It also allows us to do the monitoring of our work. There is also better collaboration with others across our regional teams. IT has [a] better, cleaner, and bug free environment that anyone can use.

Gradle

SBT works fine for Scala but when I tried to use it with Java it was hard to configure and I gave up. Maven is awesome but the pom.xml file tends to be really big which makes it hard to read. Grunt is suitable only for js projects.

Return on Investment

GitLab

  • The community version is free and can be run as a container. This has significantly reduced the cost to get started with the app.
  • The integrated CICD system is allowing development teams to increase their development speed as code is automatically tested and built when new versions are committed.

Gradle

  • In a distributed development environment, once we established a strong CI/CD model, Gradle proved to be a great choice to automate the various processes. Gradle also provides much flexibility, which is essential in today's development environment. The important benefit is that the CI/CD engineers can support development's needs quickly and reliably. This in turn supports faster testing and deployment, which generates higher ROI.
