## What is Gitblit?
Gitblit is an open-source, pure Java stack for managing, viewing, and serving [Git][git] repositories.
It's designed primarily as a tool for small workgroups who want to host centralized repositories.
### GO: Single-Stack Solution
*Gitblit GO* is an integrated, single-stack solution based on Jetty.
You do not need Apache httpd, Perl, Git, or Gitweb. Should you want to use some or all of those, you still can; Gitblit plays nice with the other kids on the block.
This is what you should download if you want to go from zero to Git in less than 5 mins.
### WAR: For Your Servlet Container
*Gitblit WAR* is what you should download if you already have a servlet container available that you wish to use. Jetty 6/7/8 and Tomcat 6/7 are known to work. Generally, any Servlet 2.5 or Servlet 3.0 container should work.
### You decide how to use Gitblit
Gitblit can be used as a dumb repository viewer with no administrative controls or user accounts.
Gitblit can be used as a complete Git stack for cloning, pushing, and repository access control.
Gitblit can be used without any other Git tooling (including actual Git) or it can cooperate with your established tools.
### All Transports
The SSH, HTTP, & GIT protocols are supported and ready-to-go out of the box.
### Issue tracking with branch-based pull requests
Gitblit blends elements of GitHub, BitBucket, and Gerrit to provide a streamlined collaboration workflow based on branches within the primary repository.
### Easy Remote Management
Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the *Web UI*.
Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the *JSON RPC interface* using the [Gitblit Manager](%GCURL%manager-${project.releaseVersion}.zip) or your own custom tooling.
Administrators can create and manage all repositories, user accounts, and teams from the *command-line* using SSH & the [Powertools plugin](
### Integration with Your Infrastructure
- Extendable by plugins
- Groovy push hook scripts
- Pluggable user service mechanism
- LDAP authentication with optional LDAP-controlled Team memberships
- Redmine authentication
- authentication
- Windows authentication
- PAM authentication
- Custom authentication, authorization, and user management
- Rich RSS feeds
- JSON-based RPC mechanism
- Java Client RSS/JSON API library for custom integration
### Backup Strategy
Gitblit includes a backup mechanism (*federation*) which can be used to backup repositories and, optionally, user accounts, team definitions, server settings, & Groovy push hook scripts from your Gitblit instance to another Gitblit instance or to a [Gitblit Federation Client](%GCURL%fedclient-${project.releaseVersion}.zip). Similarly, you can use the federation mechanism to aggregate individual workspace Gitblit instances to a common, centralized server.
### Java Runtime Requirement
Gitblit requires a Java 7 Runtime Environment (JRE) or a Java 7 Development Kit (JDK).
