    Alternatives to Redmine

    It's official. I can't install and run Redmine on Linux. The web of dependencies, the complex nature of Ruby packaging system (which is particularly hostile to someone who doesn't know the language) and Redmine own lack of proper documentation has finally won and I don't want this bloody thing anymore.

    I'm looking for some good project management system, web based, simple to setup and install that offers issue tracking and supports git. It doesn't need to offer collaborative features. I'm using it only for myself.

    Save me!

    I do need a self-hosting local solution. Bitbucket or Gitlab are my choices once I am ready to go public, just not sure yet which. But during the whole alpha stage I prefer a self-hosting and local solution. My ability to stay online is not under my control and while an extended offline period is not a problem for git, it will be for the Issue Tracker, which is exactly the main feature I need.

    Bitbucket self-hosting solution charges a one time fee which I don't want to pay. So that's out for this stage. GitLab CE does have a perfect feature set. It has certain weird limitations, like forcing your merges to always fast-forward. But that's ok since I don't plan to commit from within the web interface, anyways. However it really is an heavy-weight for what is essential my need for an issue tracker integrated into git. This is a one-man show during the whole alpha stage and, while I don't mind the extra features, I don't want them to come with too much of an associated cost in resources.

    I'm currently looking into Gogs. That's very likely what I will choose. Cheap on resources, supports nginx which is also cheap on resources, can be used of an sqlite database which is also dirt cheap, and it apparently is cheap easy to install. Will only know over the course of the weekend.

    If you're looking for personal file hosting and limited local sharing with a small group of people I'd go with Simple File Sharing and Storage.. From time to time they'll offer https instead of the less secure http. It used to be for free with up to 12 GB limit and bonus if you wanted to advertise with FaceBook. However the features are less now a days since it has become more costly now that more people are using it. You used to be able to track how many downloads you get without paying for those nice features. Now you have to pay to track. If you like more storage and your project gets bigger you can add on more GB for pay out of your on pocket of course.

    Asana is very close to the Redmine and has more visual attractiveness as for me.
