RepoBee and Gitea¶
Gitea support in RepoBee is in early development. All features are implemented, but there are known shortcomings and we currently don’t recommend using it in a live environment.
RepoBee supports Gitea through the built-in
gitea plugin. Gitea is very similar to GitHub, and the terminology
relating to RepoBee (organization, team, etc) is identical.
How to use RepoBee with Gitea¶
You must use the
gitea plugin for RepoBee to be able to interface with a
Gitea instance. See Installing plugins (the install action) for instructions on how to use
plugins. This is one of those plugins that you’ll want to activate persistently
plugin activate. Other than that, usage with Gitea is identical to
that with GitHub.
Getting an access token for Gitea¶
To create a personal access token for a Gitea instance, log in and then click
your profile picture in the top right corner. From there, click
and then go to the
Applications menu. At the top you’ll find a small
section for generating a new token.
Trying out RepoBee with the Gitea test instance¶
We provide a test instance at https://gitea.repobee.org on which you can play around with RepoBee in an environment where messing up isn’t a big deal. To use the test instance, simply sign up (you can use a bogus email address) and have fun!
The test instance is automatically wiped clean every 24 hours at around 1-2am UTC. No data is retained, be that accounts or repository contents, so don’t store anything important on the instance!
