GitBlit on the Raspberry Pi

I’ve used GitHub, BitBucket and Unfuddle for hosted Git repositories – and they’re good at what they do – but until recently hadn’t found a good solution for a locally hosted Git repository server. I stumbled across GitBlit, which fits the bill perfectly, and even runs acceptably on a Raspberry Pi. It’s written in Java, so you’ll need to install Oracle JDK 8. For the record, I used the Raspbian OS and installed the Linux Gitblit GO distribution. GitBlit includes basic issue tracking and repository documentation (via Markdown).
