RhodeCode is a fast and powerful management tool for and GIT with a built in push/pull server and full text search and code-review. It works on http/https and has a built in permission/authentication system with the ability to authenticate via LDAP or ActiveDirectory. RhodeCode also provides simple API so it’s easy integrable with existing external systems.

RhodeCode is similar in some respects to github or , however RhodeCode can be run as standalone hosted application on your own server. It is open source and donation ware and focuses more on providing a customized, self administered interface for and GIT repositories. RhodeCode is powered by a vcs library that Lukasz Balcerzak and I created to handle multiple different version control systems.

  • Has its own middleware to handle protocol requests. Each request can be logged and authenticated.
  • Runs on threads unlike hgweb. You can make multiple pulls/pushes simultaneous. Supports http/https and LDAP
  • Full permissions (private/read/write/admin) and authentication per project. One account for web interface and push/pull/clone operations.
  • Have built in users groups for easier permission management
  • Repository groups let you group repos and manage them easier.
  • Users can fork other users repo. RhodeCode have also compare view to see combined changeset for all changeset made within single push.
  • Build in commit-api let’s you add, edit and commit files right from RhodeCode interface using simple editor or upload form for binaries.
  • Mako templates let’s you customize the look and feel of the application.
  • Beautiful diffs, annotations and source code browsing all colored by pygments. Raw diffs are made in git-diff format, including git binary-patches
  • branch graph and yui-flot powered graphs with zooming and statistics
  • Admin interface with user/permission management. Admin activity journal, logs pulls, pushes, forks, registrations and other actions made by all users.
  • Server side forks. It is possible to fork a project and modify it freely without breaking the main repository. You can even write Your own hooks and install them
  • code review with notification system, inline commenting, all parsed using rst syntax
  • rst and markdown README support for repositories
  • Full text search powered by Whoosh on the source files, and file names. Build in indexing daemons, with optional incremental index build (no external search servers required all in one application)
  • Setup project descriptions and info inside built in db for easy, non file-system operations
  • Intelligent cache with invalidation after push or project change, provides high performance and always up to date data.
  • Rss / atom feeds, gravatar support, download sources as zip/tar/gz
  • Async tasks for speed and performance using celery (works without them too)
  • Backup scripts can do backup of whole app and send it over scp to desired location
  • Based on pylons / sqlalchemy / sqlite / whoosh / vcs
